LYNCHBURG - The Roanoke College women's soccer team fell in the final moment of the contest with Averett University on Saturday in the Shellenberger Invitational at Lynchburg College. The Maroons now sit with a record of 0-2, while the Cougars now hold a record of 1-2.
Both teams were unable to find the back of the net for the first 45 minutes. In the second half, the story mostly remained the same until the 88:17 mark, as Averett's Pernilla Milton scored the only goal of the game to give the Cougars the 1-0 victory.
Roanoke led in many categories during the game including shots (16-12), corner kicks (5-2) and saves (6-3). Carmen Graves and Heather Reynolds led the Maroons in shots with four each. They were followed by Maya Kantor who tallied two.
The Maroons will return to action today, September 9th as they face off against Kenyon College. That contest is scheduled to begin at 11:00 AM.
