The Lee University women’s soccer team conceded a late goal from the University of West Georgia and came away with a draw on Friday evening.
After neither team scored in the opening half, the Wolves got on the board first behind a goal from Hillary Resendiz. This was the first time this season the Lady Flames allowed a team to score first.
Lee bounced back quickly in the 55th minute. Katie Dirkse scored a goal off of a corner for the second straight game. She headed the corner from Alexis Hale to tie the game.
The Lady Flames then took the lead two minutes later as Ashley Eulo scored her first goal of the season on a pass from Kassidy Kellett.
The Wolves scored the equalizer in the 81st minute with a goal from Janaisia Smith.
Lee had several shots in the last five minutes but could not score.
Ellie Crisler had seven shots with two on goal but could not convert. Lee outshot UWG 14-9 but both teams had five shots on target. The Wolves had eight corners to the Lady Flames three.
Head Coach Chris Hennessey was disappointed with the tie. “It is always a tough game against UWG. It was competitive and played with a lot of intensity. We need to move on from today and prepare for VSU.”
The Lady Flames will head to Valdosta, Ga. to take on Valdosta State on Sunday, September 23 at 1 PM.
