North Georgia falls 4-0 to Bobcats on the road

Lady Saints return home Saturday for senior day

MILLEDGEVILLE, GA – North Georgia College & State University fought the Bobcats of Georgia College to a scoreless halftime battle, but fell 4-0 on the road Wednesday evening.

Much of the game was controlled by the Bobcats, taking a 27-4 shot advantage over the Lady Saints, but NGCSU goalkeeper Jessica English proved to be a wall in the first half, making a couple diving saves among her three stops.

Jeni Day broke the scoreless tie just over 10 minutes into the second period, as senior Emily Norris set her up with a great cross from the left side. Day tacked on her second just over 10 minutes later, when freshman Kayla Emerson found her on the left side this time. Rookie Kelli McLane also assisted on the play.

GCSU wasted little time adding to the 2-0 lead as just 51 seconds later, sophomore Erika Kolodin tallied her first career goal with help from Kayla Emerson and sister Britni Emerson. Junior Hayley Ferrell capped the scoring at 73:50 on a brilliant pass from McLane, Ferrell’s team-leading 16th of the season.

English made four total saves in 11 tries in the loss, while freshman Mary Rob Plunkett made a pair of first-half saves in the win.

Of the Saints’ four shots, leading-scorer Lauren Schenk led with two.

North Georgia will wrap up the regular season at home against Georgia Southwestern State University Saturday at 1 p.m. North Georgia will honor Brittany Bruner and Kelly Orear as they play their last home game for the Lady Saints.
