The Covenant College women's soccer team (2-1-4, 1-0-1 CCS), hosted Asbury on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Scotland Yard. The Scots used an early goal in both the first and second halves to get the win over the Eagles.
Rachel Wall put Covenant in front in the 10th minute, after finding the end of a free kick from Reece Black. Asbury immediately came on the offensive attack after play restarted, but Reese Bolton's shot was saved by Lucy Sandhoff. Leah Marr had a look on goal in the 36th minute, however, her shot flared out right. Covenant had a corner kick a few minutes before halftime, but couldn't muster a shot off of it.
At the half, Covenant had five shots and Asbury had four.
The Asbury goalkeeper fouled Wall in the box, giving Marr a penalty kick opportunity that she didn't waste. Marr blasted the ball into the right side of the net to give Covenant a 2-0 lead.
Bronwyn Kickasola came in at goalie in the second half and made her first career save in the 74th minute. Covenant had three good looks later in the game from Blythe Jelley, Wall, and Black, but the finish was missing for each chance.
Covenant had a 13-10 advantage in shots and had six on goal.
The Scots had five corner kicks while Asbury had one.
This is the second consecutive game Marr has scored a penalty kick goal.
Covenant travels to Berry on Tuesday night. The match is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.
