Railsplitters down Eagles, 3-0
HARROGATE, Tenn. - So far this season the Eagles have had to match up against some pretty tough opponents through their first three games, and their fourth game of the season turned out to be no different.
The Eagles (0-4) sent a season-high eight shots toward the opposing net but couldn't seem to find the right combination to break through on the scoreboard as they dropped a 3-0 decision at the hands of the host Railsplitters.
The Railsplitters (1-0) found goals off the foots of Michelle Allen, Rachael Vienneau, and Olivia Thompson.
Goalkeeper Lizzie Hoffa continued to show promise in the goal for the Eagles as she added ten saves to her totals for the year. She now has a save percentage of .784 which-- if she keeps pace-- would put her into the top-10 for an individual season in Asbury history.
Cassie Holland found a knack for the ball on Friday afternoon, as she collected a team-high three shots. Meredith Ury continues to create space and put herself in good positions to make things happen as she added two shots to her team-leading totals for the season.
The Eagles, after getting 10 days off, have less than 24 hours to regroup as they search for their first win in the 2013 season. The return home to host Oakland City University tomorrow (9/7) here in Wilmore at 2 p.m.
