Women's Soccer: Dreary day for SU as it loses 2-0

In one of the few games not affected by the weather on a busy sports Saturday, the Shippensburg University women’s soccer team lost its tough battle against visiting Edinboro University 2-0 from David See Field.

EU’s Becca Costello and Jenna Madison took advantage of the Raider’s miscues early and throughout, capitalizing for two goals.

Just over four minutes into the game, Costello struck first for the Fighting Scots when she connected with the back of the net, followed by Jenna Madison who extended the lead to 2-0 with an unassisted goal from the right side with 12 minutes to go in the first half.

SU’s Rachel Hess, Kate Zech, Katie Leverentz and Molly Sanders all had shots on goal for the game. Shelbie Rackley had a total of six saves in the game.

The Raiders kept the game close early on but let the momentum slip away.

SU was not able to get any good chances once the first half concluded. EU outshot the Raiders 14-13. With the six saves on Saturday, Rackley has now posted 32 saves in four games this season for the Raiders.

The Raiders host Indiana University of Pennsylvania on Friday from David See Field at 3 p.m.
