Davenport (MI) University visited the Pioneers women’s soccer team on Wednesday, September 8 and achieved victory with a final score of 2-0. Davenport was on the offensive early as both of their goals came within the first 10 minutes of action.
Davenport’s first goal came after only six minutes ticked off the clock. The goal was headed-in off of a corner kick by the Panthers. Minutes later the Panthers added another goal securing what would be the final score.
After falling behind 2-0 the Pioneers and their all AMC defensive player of the week, goalie Angie Nutial increased their defensive play. Unfortunately the Panthers, ahead 2-0, were no longer concerned with scoring goals as much as they were about preventing them.
Although Malone fought valiantly to get back into the game they could not manage to sneak a shot past the Davenport defenders.
Davenport held the advantage in the final tally of shots on goal 7-5.
Malone will be back in action September 14 when they travel to Cedarville University to take on the Yellow Jackets at 7:00 pm.
The loss drops the Pioneers to 2-1-0 and the Panthers increase their overall record to 3-0-1.
