MILLEDGEVILLE, GA - Florida Southern College women's soccer (1-2) dropped an afternoon contest at Georgia College (2-0) on Sunday. A Bobcat goal in the eighth minute was all the scoring that Georgia College would need to send the Mocs back to Florida with a loss. Senior Anna Griessler fired off another six shots on the afternoon, while goalie Crista Noelle Rolfsen made a save.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- Griessler had the Mocs first scoring opportunity in the fourth minute that was blocked by a solid Bobcats defense.
- Georgia College's Sofia Lekas put one past the Mocs goalie for the eventual game-winning goal in the eighth minute from a shot on the left side of the box.
- The Mocs had plenty of scoring chances in the first half as they fired off seven shots in the first half.
- Early in the second half GC's Brooke Adams struck a shot past Rolfsen for an insurance goal in the 52nd minute on a deep pass from the midfield by Anya Mancinelli.
