TAMPA, Fla. – Battling through a tough non-conference schedule the Georgia College (1-5) women`s soccer team lost at the University of Tampa (4-2) 2-0 Sunday morning.
The Spartans scored once early in each half. Samantha Kay struck first just over 18 minutes into the game, off a corner kick. GC went into the half down 1-0.
Another breakdown came only 2:45 into the second frame. Jasmin Perry put the Bobcats down 2-0 off a double-assist play.
GC was out-shot 19-6 in the game, the lowest shot output in two years for the Bobcats coming against a notoriously stingy Spartan defense.
Freshman Taylor Cornelius (Dacula, Ga.) played the whole 90 minutes for the first time in her career, making five saves while allowing two goals in the loss. Emelia Karstrom had three saves for the shutout win.
Sophomore Brittaney Borror (Evans, Ga.) led Georgia College with two shots, one of which was on mark.
The Bobcats are back in action Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m., hosting the University of Montevallo (2-4, 0-1 PBC) to open up the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) season.
