Macon, Ga. – Presbyterian College senior Kelsey Yeager scored a pair of late goals to lead the Blue Hose women’s soccer team (3-1) to a 2-1 victory over Mercer (3-2-1) on Sunday night at Betts Stadium. Yeager has scored five goals in four games and has two game winning goals.
How It Happened
The first half was an even affair with both defenses limiting the scoring chances. Blue Hose freshman Megan Serrano collected two first-half saves on six shots by Mercer.
The Bears were able to break the deadlock in the 58th minute off a left-footed shot from Sarah Adcock.
Yeager then tied the game with a free kick from 40 yards out with a free kick that bounced over everyone, including keeper Jordyn Ebert, with 16 minutes to play.
Serrano made a great save with nine minutes to go off a shot from Jorden Christensen to keep it tied at 1-1.
Mercer then committed back-to-back fouls with five minutes remaining to set up Yeager’s fifth goal of the season. The senior struck the ball from 35 yards out and saw it bounce past everyone again to give PC the 2-1 advantage.
The Bears were able to take two more shots before the game ended but were unable to find the equalizer.
PC is out to its best start since going 3-2 to start the 2013 season.
Kelsey Yeager scored her fourth and fifth goals of the season. She is now tied for 4th in PC’s Division I era with nine career goals, ranked sixth with 5 goals in a season, and tied for 10th with 10 points in a single season.
