Game Recap

The Comstock Colts loaded their back line with six players in an attempt to contain the multiple runs into the attacking third by the Panthers. The Panthers had a number of shots fall just short of beating the talented keeper of Comstock. With the score tied 0-0 at half-time both teams made tactical adjustments and came out strong. Two minutes into the second half a collision occurred between members of both squads, the Comstock player received a yellow card for her foul while the Panther player received a red card for retaliation. The red card resulted in the Panthers playing down a player (10v11) for all but two minutes of the second half.

Despite playing down a player the Panthers earned a penalty kick mid-way through the second half, however the Colts keeper was able to make a brilliant save. With the game still tied at 0-0 at the end of regulation the teams would go into a penalty shootout.

Freshman Victoria Smith made the 1st attempt for the Panthers as well as saving the Colts first two PK attempts to give them a 1-0 lead in the best of 5 shootout. Freshman Emma Armstrong scored the second PK of the game giving the Panthers a 2-0 lead. However the Colts made their final three PK attempts to give the Colts a 3-2 win on PK’s.
