Nevada women’s soccer suffered their fourth loss this season against the California Baptist Lancers at home on Sept. 9.
The first half was a close matchup. The Lancers had six shots in the first half, and the Wolf Pack had five. Nevada goalie Kendal Stovall saved three of the shots with the other three missing the goal.
The five fouls Nevada had in the first half led to most of the action being in favor of the Lancers. However, Nevada had a few strong outbreaks—one being an opportunity by forward Gabby Brown from a left side cross kick by forward Trinity Sandridge. Brown missed the shot, and so did forward Taylor O’Neill during her chance 26:15 into the game.
Forward Mariah Jackson fell to an injury 36 minutes in and did not play the rest of the match. Her injury is unknown. Forward Olivia Carter took her place.
After a scoreless first half, the Lancers came out with strong offense in the beginning of the second half.
Lancers Jayden Ramirez scored the first goal of the game in the second half at 52:55. Coming in just eight minutes after was Faith Lee’s goal to the bottom right. Another seven minutes passed by and Malia Cerdon scored, making it 3-0.
Eighteen minutes were left in the game, and forward Ally Little came through with the first Nevada goal. The Pack had a chance to score again with a free kick near the top of the goal box by midfielder Hannah Souza, but unfortunately was blocked.
The final score was 3-1, and the Lancers took the win.
Another home game is coming up on Sunday, Sept. 12 at noon against the University of Idaho.
