CLINTON S.C. – The Presbyterian College women’s soccer team fell late in the second overtime against Gardner-Webb at Martin Stadium on Wednesday night.
How it Happened
Both teams traded shots in the early going of the first half. Freshman goalkeeper Alyssa Leaman made her first career start, and made one-on-one saves in the 14th and 16th minutes. Neither team could find the back of the net for the first 100 minutes, taking the game to a second overtime. Gardner-Webb ended the match in the 109th minute when Samuelle Grove broke through the PC defensive line and found the back of the net.
Woman of the Match
Leaman faced 15 shots on goal in her starting debut, allowing only one goal and making several key saves to keep the Blue Hose in the game.
Stat of the Game
Leaman’s 14 saves was the most for a Blue Hose keeper this season, and the most for PC since Sarah Beth Anderson recorded 17 against Navy in 2010.
PC falls to 2-8-0 overall and 0-2-0 in the Big South, while Gardner-Webb improves to 4-6-2 overall and 1-1-0 in conference play.
The Blue Hose will take to the road to play Liberty in another Big South matchup on Saturday Oct. 1 at 3:00 p.m.
