Women's Soccer Suffers Early Season Set Back with Rochester

WHEATON, Ill. – The Hanover women's soccer team suffered an early season set back on Friday afternoon falling to Rochester Institute, 2-0.

Sophomore Amanda Carmosino (Noblesville, Ind.) led the way for Hanover as she registered a game-high six saves in frame. A trio of Panthers registered shot attempts in the contest as senior Lizzie Matchett (Liberty Toenship, Ohio), sophomore Autumn Boothby (Mount Orab, Ohio), and sophomore Bryn Rolfsen (Loveland, Ohio) all tallied a shot. The Blue and Red finished with three shots, two of which were on goal.

The Panthers (0-1 overall) fell behind early in the contest as Rochester found the back of the net in the 12th minute following a long ball from the left corner of the 18-yard box that just beat the Hanover keeper, 1-0.

Rochester would strike again in 41st minute as a header in front of the goal extended the Tiger lead, 2-0.

The Panthers looked to crack into the score's column in the second half as Rolfsen ripped off a shot that missed just high of the Tiger frame. The Blue and Red would get one more chance at the net as Matchett placed a ball on goal that was saved by the Rochester keeper. 

The Panthers return to action on Saturday, August 31 as they take on Puget Sound at the Bob Baptista Invitational hosted by Wheaton College. Game time is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
