Greenville, S.C. – Anderson University women's soccer gave up a late goal, after a foul called in the box resulted in a successful penalty kick, to fall to South Atlantic Conference opponent Catawba, 1-0, on Saturday evening at Legacy Early College Field.
With the loss, the Trojans fall to 7-7 overall and 4-5 in SAC action, while the Indians move to 11-2-2 overall and 6-1-2 in conference play.
After a scoreless 70 minutes of action, Anderson was called for a foul inside the box which resulted in an Indian penalty kick. Katie Beck drilled home the successful try to give the Indians a 1-0 advantage.
The Trojans backline and keeper Madison Paige made some tremendous stops with Paige being credited with four saves on the evening.
Catawba outshot Anderson 11 (6) – 8 (2), while claiming the corner kick edge, 4-0.
"It's always tough to lose a hard fought game against a good team on a penalty kick," said head coach Sarah Jacobs. "Proud of the girls for their effort, but we have things to improve going into our last game and the conference tournament."
Anderson will travel to SAC opponent Queens on Wednesday. Kick-off is slated for 5 p.m.
