Mount St. Mary’s Soccer traveled to Central Michigan University (5-2-1) to square off with the Chippewas on Sat. afternoon where they fell by a final score of 4-2 moving them to 3-6 on the year.
CMU came out hot scoring 2 goals in just under five and a half minutes. Trailing 2-0, the Mount created a scoring opportunity for junior Jenna West just before halftime. West fired a bullet past Central Michigan’s goalkeeper, finding the back of the net and West’s fifth goal of the season.
Still leading by just a goal midway, the Chippewas would strike again on a header in the 69th minute, separating the contest to a score of 3-1. Shortly after, CMU would again add to their lead making it 4-1 with just under 15 minutes remaining in the game.
Sophomore Jaylyn Chandler found herself taking a penalty kick with just under 2 minutes left in the game. Chandler would convert and earn her second goal of the season, but it would not be enough as CMU was able to hold off the Mount in the final moments of the game securing a 4-2 win.
The Mount will return home on Sept. 24 to polish off their set of non-conference games against Delaware State University (0-9) at 1 p.m.
