Clippers Women's Soccer Concludes Florida Trip with Defeat at Lynn

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Concordia College women's soccer team concluded their Florida trip on Sunday afternoon against the Lynn Fighting Knights. The Clippers were unable to find the back of the net as Lynn secured a 7-0 win at Bobby Campbell Stadium.

The Fighting Knights would score their first goal of the game in the 10th minute off a low shot. Concordia would have an opportunity on net in the 30th minute as sophomore Sara Calvert (Apple Valley, Calif.) was able to get off a shot, but would be blocked before it reached with opposing goalkeeper.

Lynn managed to score their second goal of the afternoon in the 33rd minute as junior Dayna Darcy (Plainedge, N.Y.) had a shot on net for the Clippers in the 34th minute which was saved by the Fighting Knights' goalkeeper. Freshman Cassandra Iantomasi (Oshawa, Ontario, Canada) and junior Taylor Codner (Houston, Texas) each had shots of their own before the end of the half, but neither shot would cut Concordia's deficit in half as Lynn led 2-0 at the break.

In the second half the Fighting Knights added one goal in the 47th, two in the 53rd, one in the 57th, and one in the 59th minutes to lead 7-0. The Clippers had a lone shot in the period as graduate Amanda Astudillo (Westbury, N.Y.) took one in the 80th minute that went wide of the net, but Lynn held Concordia scoreless in the 7-0 win for the home team.

Sophomore Miranda Merino (Victorville, Calif.) made four saves for the Clippers as Concordia was playing without a true goalkeeper in the game. The Clippers were out-shot 28-5 in the game.
