Kutztown Suffers Heartbreaker as Rally vs. Edinboro Falls Short

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - In a closely contested battle between Kutztown University and the Edinboro University Fighting Scots, one goal was the deciding factor in Friday's Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) match-up at Keystone Field.

Kutztown (2-5, 0-3 PSAC) was down by a score of 8-1with 23:01 left in the game and went on a tear, scoring six unanswered goals. The Maroon and Gold poured on the pressure up until the final buzzer, but could not tally the game-tying score. The offensive attack was led by Jillian Spencer (Sewell, NJ/Washington Township), who netted three goals, and Krystine Beodeker (Dingmans Ferry, PA/Delaware Valley), who put away two goals. Sophomore Cara Lord (Media, PA/Penncrest) had a goal with two assists, and Taylor Stone (West Babylon, NY/West Babylon) added a goal herself. Kutztown was able to outshoot Edinboro, as their 28 shots surpassed the Scots' 18.

Edinboro's (4-2, 1-2 PSAC) offense was able to pull out the 8-7 victory by the help of Rebecca Martin, who notched three goals, and Hannah Mong adding another two goals. Alexa Healy, Jenny Wirth, and Anna Purdy all contributed a goal as well. Draw controls played heavily in favor of the Fighting Scots, as they had 15 as opposed to the Golden Bears' two.

Kutztown refused to give up after being down big, and played with tremendous amounts of heart. Edinboro, however, kept its composure to get its first conference victory of the season.

The Golden Bears look to pick up a conference victory tomorrow as they end a three-game home stretch, taking on the 15th-ranked Bloomsburg Huskies on March 29th at 1:00 p.m. Due to expected consistent rain tomorrow, the game will be played on Kutztown's turf at University Field.
