Women’s soccer struggles on the field during hurricane break

The Georgia Southern women’s soccer team could not pull through a win during the class-less Hurricane break last week.

Thursday’s game against Stetson saw a last-minute location change where both teams met in the middle city, which was Columbus.

The Hatters broke the Eagles’ three-game winning streak behind a fast offense and an aggressive defense.

The lone GS goal was hit by senior forward Frida Brattum with an assist from junior forward Maddie Klintworth.

Both teams held their own in the first period and went into the half tied at one.

The Hatters went on to score three more answered goals in the game and improved to 2-3 overall this season. 

“A disappointing result this evening,” Interim Head Coach Josh Moffet said. “But for me, what’s most disappointing was the manner of the defeat. However, we’ll learn from today, and grow to be better.”

On Sunday, the women’s soccer team traveled to North Carolina to take on Davidson College where they fell 1-0.

The only goal of the game was scored by senior midfielder Seeley Yoo four minutes into the first half. 

There were shot attempts by Brattum, freshman forward Addison Crone, sophomore midfielder Nora Falnes, junior forward Maddie Klintworth and sophomore defender Taylor Regensburger.

GS goalkeeper Olivia Elofsson made seven saves and the team accumulated eight fouls.

With these two losses, the team holds a 3-3 record. 

“Another tough game on the road, against a strong athletic Davidson side,” Moffet said. “I felt good with the adjustments at halftime. We controlled the game better in the second half but lacked the ruthlessness we’ve shown all season inside the box.”

They will be back in action on Thursday in Athens to play a 2-3-1 Georgia Bulldog team.
