Women's soccer falls to Yellow Jackets

ASHLAND, Va. – The Marymount University women's soccer team fell on Sunday afternoon to Randolph-Macon College, 7-1.

The Yellow Jackets jumped out to a quick lead, finding the back of the net 58 seconds into play.

They capitalized three more times before the end of the first half, including scores on their second and third corner kicks in the first half.

The Saints cut into the lead in the 33rd minute, as senior Karen Reyes got free down the left sideline, after a pass down the line from freshman Laney Placido. Reyes cut into the box, past the Yellow Jacket back line, and put the ball in the bottom right of the goal, bringing the score to 4-1.

Randolph-Macon took the three-goal edge into the break. Sophomore goalkeeper Maia Pappadakis registered nine saves in the first half.

Senior Courtney Stephens looked to further cut into the Yellow Jackets' lead at the start of the second half, putting a shot on frame, but Edye Carr was there to make the save.

Randolph-Macon found the goal three times in the second half to extend its lead on the way to the victory.

Reyes finished the game with two points on the goal, while Placido added a point with her assist.

The Saints will return to Long Bridge Park on Wednesday, September 25, playing host to Messiah College for their next match; the opening kick is set for 7 p.m.
