Simpson University Sports News
REDDING, Calif. - The Lady Red Hawks soccer team hosted the Mariners from Marymount College on Sunday, Sept. 30. It was another disappointing loss for the Red Hawks, as they lost the match 6-0.
The Red Hawks had opportunities early to take the lead. Senior captain Becca Borrelli came close to scoring twice in the early moments of the first half but narrowly missed. One of the best chances for the Red Hawks came when striker Rebecca Messer had a break away shot but Mariner keeper Elizabeth Smarr came up with the save. The teams went into the half time break with a 0-0 score line.
The Red Hawks came out and almost scored right from the get go, as Messer found herself in front of goal again. Her shot was cleared off of the line by a Mariner defender. The Mariners then got the breakthrough, when Beth MacInnes scored on a breakaway chance for Marymount in the 60th minute. After that, the flood gates seemed to open and the Red Hawks could not contain the Mariners. Andrea Faerber added goals in the 62nd, 68th minute and 73rd minute; Jenna Fisher added Marymount's fourth goal in the 70th minute. The final goal of the game would come from Kelsea Nash in the 86th minute to cap off the 6-0 win for the Mariners.
The Red Hawks will now try and regroup from this loss against California Pacific North rivals William Jessup University on Saturday, Oct. 6 in Redding at 1 p.m.
