GLASSBORO, N.J. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision Wednesday night against Rowan University.
The Sea Gulls (3-2) had chances to net the equalizing goal but it was not meant to be and the Sea Gulls fall to 0-2 on the road so far this season. Salisbury was outshot by the Profs 14-12 but the Sea Gulls had a 6-4 edge in shots on goal. Senior Erin Mooney led the Sea Gull charge with three shots, with classmate Sarah Pfundstein firing two shots on goal during the contest as well.
For the third time in five games, the Sea Gulls and their opponents played a scoreless first half. A little over four minutes into the second half, after a scramble in front of the goal mouth, the Profs were able to push across the game-deciding goal. Nina Fragoso sent in a corner kick for Rowan and after a sequence of the ball bouncing around in front, Fragoso was able to find the back of the net for the game's only goal.
Sophomore goalie Michelle Conrad stopped three shots by Rowan (2-1) to keep the Sea Gulls within striking distance.
The Sea Gulls return home this Saturday to take on the defending national champions, No. 4 Messiah College. The match is set to start at 1 p.m., at the SU Soccer Complex.
