Missed Opportunities Costly For GSC

8. 27. 2014 - Women's Soccer

Two great scoring opportunities in the first half for Gordon State College were thwarted by Eagles' goalkeeper Hannah Smith. Her efforts kept the Highlanders off the board and Oxford College of Emory went on to defeat GSC 2 - 0 in Tuesday's non-conference match in Barnesville. Oxford's Meghan Spencer was credited with both goals in the victory by the visiting team. The Highlanders must now wait until Friday to claim their first win as they travel to Tifton for a 5 p.m. tilt against ABAC. It will also start the first of seven straight road contests for GSC. Of those seven, five will be important conference matchups during the three-week road tour. Unfortunately, the Highlanders will not return to their own playing surface until September 21 when they host South Georgia State College for a 6 p.m. match at the Athletic Complex. While they are on the road, you can chart the progress of the women's soccer team as the results of each match will be updated on the athletic website. Go Gordon!
