The Oswego State women's soccer team suffered its first loss of the season in its home-opener against Clarkson University on Friday.


THE BASICS

  • Result: Clarkson 2, Oswego 1
  • Location: Laker Soccer Field – Oswego, N.Y.
  • Records: Clarkson (3-1-1)  |  Oswego (3-1-0)

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Lynsey Roth scored her team-leading third goal of the year at 83:43 to knot the game at 1-1.
  • The sophomore received a pass from Audrey Burbidge and beat a defender to the left, ripping a goal past the Golden Knight goalie diving to her right.
  • Prior to the Lakers' lone goal, Clarkson capitalized on a corner kick at 76:59 that deflected off the goalie and trickled past the goal line.
  • The Golden Knights' game-winning tally came a little more than two minutes after Roth's goal in the final five minutes of play.
  • Emma Allen made a diving stretch to her right to try to knock the shot wide, but narrowly missed the eventual deciding score.
  • The senior made three saves in the contest, despite taking her first defeat of the year.

WHAT'S NEXT

Oswego will look to bounce back into the win column at 1 p.m. on Saturday when it hosts St. Lawrence University in a nonconference tilt.
