Women’s Soccer Falls to Spartans

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Lynn University's offensive woes in women's soccer continued with a 3-0 loss to No. 14 Tampa on Wednesday afternoon.  Meghan Dolan logged six saves as the Fighting Knights fall to 2-5-1 overall and 2-2-0 in the Sunshine State Conference.

The Blue & White attacked the Spartans (8-2-0, 3-0-0 SSC) with a breakaway attempt in the opening minutes of play but UT was able to thwart the attempt and counter.  Tampa drew the first of five corner kicks and on the ensuing cross from Courtney Peffley, Katherine Marting was able to slip a shot past Dolan on the left side of the net.

Peffley would score in the 54th minute while an own goal in the 85th minute ended the day for the Fighting Knights.

Lynn was outshot 22-5 and edged 5-2 in corner kicks.

The Blue & White return to action on Saturday, September 29, at 5 p.m. when they travel to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., to battle Nova Southeastern.  Fans can catch the action live at LynnFightingKnights.com.  Don't forget to 'Like' us on Facebook and follow @LUKnights on Twitter and Instagram.
