CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Maryland women's soccer team dropped a tough 1-0 decision to William & Mary on the final day of the Virginia Soccer Classic in Charlottesville, Va.
The first half of the match was evenly played and both teams entered halftime scoreless. That changed at the beginning of the second half when the Tribe's Kellie Jenkins finished a through-ball from Danielle Collins to the far post for the only goal of the match.
"We lost our discipline at the start of the second half, and gave William & Mary a high percentage opportunity, which to their credit, they finished," said Maryland head coach Brian Pensky. "Our team needs to be more mature than that. In the attacking end, we simply need to finish. Having out-shot them 2-to-1, with nothing to show for it, is disappointing."
Overall for the match, the Terps out-shot the Tribe 14-7. William & Mary held a 5-4 shot advantage in the first 45 minutes of play, but the Terps dominated play in the second half, out-shooting the Tribe 10-2.
Junior goalkeepers Mary Casey finished the match with three saves.
Maryland (3-3-1) finishes up its non-conference schedule on Sunday, Sept. 21 with a 1 p.m. match against Mount St. Mary's at Ludwig Field.
