Sea Gulls fall to Eagles in hard-fought contest

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team fell to Eastern University on Tuesday, 2-0, at the SU Soccer Complex.

The Sea Gulls and Eagles played evenly throughout the entire game with most of the play happening in the midfield. Salisbury (11-5-2) outshot Eastern (10-5-2), with a slight edge, 10-9, in the match.

The contest remained scoreless, with both teams battling for the winning goal, until the 85th minute of the game when Eastern struck with its first goal as Kelsey Doutrich finished from the top of the box. Doutrich's second goal of the day, scored on a rebound from a free kick that hit off the crossbar, put the game out of reach with only one minute remaining.

Four different Sea Gulls had shots on goal, but were unable to put any in the back of the net. Senior midfielder Amanda Miele led the team with two of the shots.

Freshman goalkeeper Michelle Conrad played the entire game and recorded two saves.

Salisbury will look to rebound in its next game during the Capital Athletic Conference tournament. Salisbury has clinched the top seed in the tournament and will host a CAC semifinal game next Wednesday, Nov. 2. The game time and opponent will be determined this weekend. Check for more information as it becomes available.
