FOR RELEASE
2013-10-12
SPRING ARBOR, Mich. - After hanging with the 8th-ranked team in the nation through the first 60 minutes of play, the Forester women’s soccer team gave up two goals within a matter of six minutes to drop a 2-0 decision to Spring Arbor University Saturday afternoon.

It marked the Cougars eighth shutout of the season as they limited their visitors to just six shots on the day while generating 18 shots of their own, 11 of which were on frame.

Caitlin Adams was charged with the loss in goal. She finished with seven saves through the first 78 minutes before being relieved by Korynne Kik who tallied one save in the final 12 minutes.

“The girls played a great first half,” noted Coach Tillett. “The second half was good, but we didn’t match the energy Spring Arbor came out with after halftime. We will continue to work and improve to be at our best during the conference tournament.”

With two matches remaining, Huntington (5-10, 4-3) drops into a three-way tie for fourth with Saint Francis and Indiana Wesleyan while the Cougars (13-2-1) are sitting atop the standings with an unblemished record of 7-0 in conference play.

HU travels to Saint Francis on Wednesday before wrapping up the regular season with a home contest against Bethel on Saturday.
