FOR RELEASE
2008-08-30
The HU women's soccer team traveled to Ohio to open their season in a tournament at Cedarville University. After storms forced the postponement of Friday evening's game, the Foresters were forced to play two matches on Saturday. HU battled the host Yellow Jackets in the morning and fell 1-0 on an own goal. The Foresters then came back five hours later to take on Roberts Wesleyan and lost 6-3.
In the fourth minute of play in Cedarville match, the Yellow Jackets sent a cross from the right. When HU tried to clear it, the ball deflected off a Forester defender and went in the goal. Unfortunately, it ended as the game winner for Cedarville.

Five hours later, HU was back at it against Roberts Wesleyan who had been able to play its first game the night before. The rested Raiders took advantage of HU's weary legs and scored four unanswered goals in the first half.

The Foresters regrouped at intermission and put together three straight goals over the first 28 minutes of play in the second half to pull within one. Bethany McGraw netted two and Brittany Carlson scored the third. Roberts Wesleyan squelched HU's rally with two more goals in a two minute span effectively putting the game out of reach.
