] El Cajon, CA--
The San Diego Christian College women’s soccer team dropped a difficult battle on Saturday afternoon to the University of Texas-Brownsville, 2-1.
The Hawks (2-2-0) struck first on a penalty kick after a foul in the box on Freshman Ashley Jarosin (pictured left). Senior Captain Hannah Waggoner promptly placed the penalty kick in the back of the net for her sixth goal of the season. SDCC held the lead for seven minutes before the Scorpions (2-1-0) took advantage of two goals from Isadora Freitas in a matter of five minutes.
Freitas first goal came off of a rebound on a shot from Leah Russell. Russell dribbled down the left side of the field and drilled a shot that was knocked down by SDC goalkeeper Katelyn Ogle. Unfortunately for the Hawks, the ball deflected to Freitas who knocked it in.
Freitas scored again in the 39th minute when her initial shot was deflected by Ogle, but bounced right back to Freitas who put the ball in the back of the net to give the Scorpions the lead for good.
Both teams had opportunities in the second half, but neither was able to score. For the game, UTB out shot SDCC 23-11 and goalkeeper Katelyn Ogle had a season high 12 saves for the Hawks.
SDCC continues their season on Monday, September 12th at 1:00 pm against Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (AZ).
