HUNTINGTON, Ind. - After holding Cornerstone University scoreless through the first 45 minutes, the Forester women’s soccer team (1-5) couldn’t sustain their defensive pressure as the Golden Eagles scored three times in the second half to claim the 3-0 win.

It was an evenly matched contest through the first period with the Golden Eagles holding an 8-4 shot advantage. But after regrouping at halftime, Cornerstone was quick to establish momentum with a quick goal to start the second half. It was all they needed as they were able to grow the lead to three by taking advantage of the Foresters’ shift in strategy to push players forward as they looked for the equalizer.

“The girls played a great first half against another quality opponent,” said Coach Tillett. “It was disappointing to fall behind early in the second half but the girls continued to play hard and wrap up our fourth game of the week.

“Obviously we are not happy with our results but we are focused on improvement from one game to the next. We now shift our attention to Wednesday’s matchup against No. 25 Judson University.”

The Golden Eagles finished with 18 shots to HU’s seven. Caitlin Adams took the loss in goal. She finished with eight saves.
