Women's Soccer Loses 1-0 Heartbreaker To Yale
Sept. 18, 2005
College Park, Md. - The University of Maryland women's soccer team lost a 1-0 heartbreaker in overtime to the Yale Bulldogs Sunday afternoon at Ludwig Field.
Yale freshman Maggie Westfal gave the Bulldogs their sixth-straight victory by finishing a cross from senior Jamie Ortega into the lower right corner of the Maryland goal in the 95th minute.
"We lost 1-0 to a very good team," said Maryland head coach Brian Pensky. "We knew Yale was going to be tough, because they only gave up three goals in seven games coming into today. We had a few real quality chances, unfortunately they didn't go our way and neither did the game."
The best of those chances for the Terps came in the 64th minute. Freshman Kimmy Bunting sent a through-ball to a streaking Kelly Rozumalski, who beat the Yale defender and only had Bulldog goalkeeper, Susan Starr, to beat. Rozumalski put a move on Starr, beating the keeper, but a Yale defender was able to slip in front of the Bulldog goal and make the game-saving kick-save.
This concluded the non-conference schedule for the Terps, who begin ACC play on Thursday, September 22, at Clemson.
"We start fresh on Thusday," said Pensky. "The challenge for all of us is to put this result behind us and start the ACC off on the right note this week."
