Taylor Bests Eagles in Upland, Ind.
UPLAND, Ind. - The Asbury women's soccer team traveled to Upland, Ind., on Saturday afternoon for just its second game of the early season, falling to the Taylor Trojan by a score of 4-0. The Trojans' Molly Drooger led the way for the hosts with three goals.
Asbury (0-2) played their second game in two days to start the season, both in Indiana and both against opponents perenially know as top-25 contenders in the NAIA.
Taylor (2-0) got on the board in the 23rd minute and responded just three minutes later to jump out to a quick 2-0 lead. Drooger's second tally of the first half in the 42nd minute would send the Eagles into the locker room facing a 3-0 deficit.
Each team replaced their goalies in the second half, but the play on the field remained the same. The Eagles would manage just two shots at the Trojan keepers, compared to 27 from the hosts.
Audrey Gray was tagged with the loss in goal for the Eagles, allowing three goals and collecting six saves. Kristiana Griffith picked up her second win on the season for Taylor.
The Eagles return home on Tuesday, August 27, to take on the third-ranked Spring Arbor (Mich.) Cougars.
