Kerri Hoffman sent a ball across the face of the goal and defender Kate Wiegman scored her first goal of the season by heading the ball into the goal from about 6 yards out. Cornerstone kept pressing the Cougars through the remainder of the half but couldn't find the back of the net. "It was a very good first half performance by the team and we should have scored at least one more goal from the chances we created" said Coach Strawser.
The second half was much more even in terms of possession and chances. Both teams created some dangerous opportunities. The Cougars capitalized on one of their in the 67th minute. They played a ball over the top of the right side of our defense, collected it and played the ball across the face of the goal to their leading scorer who one timed the ball into the goal. Each team created some good chances in attempt to win the game in regulation but neither found the back of the net.
The team played similar in the overtimes. Lexie Brisson-Fast had Cornerstone's best opportunity late in the second overtime only to be thwarted by a great save by the Cougar GK. St. Francis also had an opportunity after that on a Corner Kick in the last seconds of the game but Allison Snowden handled a tough cross and kept the ball out of the goal as time was running out.
Cornerstone created a lot of chances and had 18 Corner Kicks compared to 4 by St. Francis. Shots were even at 9 for each team. "We certainly created enough chances to score more goal and we need to keep working to find ways to finish off those chances".
Cornerstone improves to 1-0-2 on the season and will return to action next Saturday when they host Huntington University (Ind.) in our "Night of Net's" game this season. That game will kick-off at 7:00 p.m. A suggested donation of $6 will gladly be accepted at the gate to help buy bed nets to send to Africa this summer.
