Providence College Press Release

Providence, R.I. The Providence College women’s soccer team fell to Colgate, 1-0, on Aug. 24 at the Ray Treacy Track.  Providence drops to 0-1-1 on the season, while Colgate improves to 1-1-0.

In the 39th minute, Colgate’s Corey Persson notched the first goal of the game, with an assist from Eliza Doll, to the bottom-right corner of the net.  At the end of the first half, Providence held the advantage in shots, 8-7, as well as corner kicks, 3-1.

In the second half, Providence continued to outshoot Colgate, 9-6.  Providence also took the advantage in corner kicks, 5-3.  Catherine Zimmerman (Madison, N.J.) had one of the best chances on net in the 86th minute, but was saved by Colgate’s goalkeeper, Brenna Mason.

 “It was a game of two halves,” said head coach Sam Lopes.  ”Colgate played well in the first half and had a goal to show for it.  In the second half, we were the better side, but lacked the final play to get the equalizer, even though we created quality chances.  The team is progressing well and will continue to improve in areas where the score can reflect the performance.”
