DSU Women’s Soccer falls short to UMBC

Friday night’s soccer match lacked a high scoring affair, but did not lack in excitement. The Delaware State women’s soccer team lost Friday night to the University Of Maryland Baltimore County 0-1. After a very slow and sluggish start by DSU, the lady hornets went down 0-1 early in the first half.

The intensity picked up towards the end of the first period for the lady hornets as they were awarded two corner kicks nearly scoring.

At the conclusion of the game, Freshmen defensive player Savannah Taylor shared, “It was not a good performance on our part. We came out really slow and lacked intensity. There were moments where we started to pick it up like towards the end of the first half. We have to be able to finish in the final third.”

With two consecutive losses the lady hornets have a quick turnaround as they will head to Washington D.C. this Sunday to face George Washington.

Head coach Kerri Scroope told the Hornet, “George Washington is going to be a tough game for us. They are usually a top 100 team. We will have to remain our composure, apply some pressure and play hard and get some more shots off.”

Scroope and her team look to start fast on Sunday against George Washington and snap their two game losing streak.
