Women's Soccer - Sun, Sep. 2, 2007
A furious second half rally by the Lady Badger soccer team fell just short as the University of North Alabama Lions took a 3-2 win away from Library Field on the Spring Hill campus. UNA (3-0) went into the halftime break with a 2-0 lead off of goals by freshman Dayna Shelden of Kansas City, Mo., and senior Claire Bennett of Alberta, Canada.
Shortly into the second half, the Lions added to their lead with a second chance goal off the foot of Tassia Augusto, a freshman from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Lady Badgers (0-2) answered the adversity with a goal by senior captain Jennifer Huber of St. Louis, Mo., off an assist by junior midfielder Sarah Engels of Bridgeton, Mo. Huber's goal seemed to re-energize the Spring Hill squad as they increased their defensive stand and began to find ways to push the ball up field offensively.
Huber added an assist to her totals when she aided sophomore forward Kasey Pruett's goal with less than 10 minutes remaining on the clock. Unfortunately for the Lady Badgers, the clock was not in their favor as the Lions were able to slow down play and run out the clock.
Senior goalie Shannon Netherby of Moramar, N.J., picked up the loss, but tallied two saves against 15 shots faced. Spring Hill next plays at home on Friday, September 7 at 3 p.m. versus Faulkner University.
