Hilyer Stadium in Montgomery, Ala.

THE FIRST HALF
Faulkner would command the first half, out shooting Dalton State 18-6. Roadrunner netminder Rachel Hardin would come up big though, stopping the Lady Eagle attack to the tune of 11 first half saves. The game would be back and forth for much of the first half until the 41' when Laney Eden corralled a ball off a corner kick and found the back of the net to give Faulkner a 1-0 lead. The Lady Eagles would waste little time trying to get another score on the board before the half. Kassandra Carpintero would get a look in the 44', but she would be stoned by Hardin as the Lady Birds went into the break down 1-0.

THE SECOND HALF
The Lady Roadrunners would waste little time getting on the board in the second half when Keyle Snyder delivered a ball toRosie Lindo who capitalized on the opportunity in the 47' and knocked it past Lady Eagle goalkeeper Kelbe Davis to tie the score at 1-1. Lindo would break the tie in the 71' with her second goal and a 2-1 lead.

Dalton State would play stingy defense in the second half, allowing just three shots, while taking 12 of their own. The backbreaker for Faulkner would come in the 73' when Keyle Snyder got loose for the third Lady Roadrunner goal of the afternoon. The defense would hold down the stretch as Dalton State would come away with a 3-1 victory.

THE REST OF THE STORY
Dalton State improves to (8-6-1 overall, 2-5 SSAC) with the win, while Faulkner drops to (3-11 overall, 1-6 SSAC) with the loss. Senior goalkeeper Rachel Hardin recorded 14 big saves on the afternoon. Senior Rosie Lindo knocked home two goals to increase her season total to eight. Keyle Snyder added one goal and increases her team leading total to 14 on the season. Dalton State locks up the sixth seed in the upcoming Southern States Athletic Conference Tournament with the win and will travel to #1 William Carey.

QUOTES FROM COACH

Roy Exum: The Black Telephone

If you have never seen one in an antique store you wouldn’t know that the first telephones were contained in a not-so-small wooden box that had a snout-looking mouth piece and a separate speaker that you would hold on your ear while you talked. This was many years ago when phones were fun as compared to today’s tiny cell phones that rudely interrupt us from the task-at-hand both ... (click for more)
