Lady Cougars Stay Unbeaten at Young Harris
SOURCE: CSU ATHLETICS
The third-ranked Columbus State University women’s soccer team added another win to its tally on Wednesday night with a 3-0 victory at Young Harris.
Columbus State (6-0-1, 3-0-0 PBC) has now scored at least three goals in six of its seven matches this season.
“We did a great job in possession tonight,” head coach Jay Entlich said. “We didn’t score in the first half, but we knew that if we kept the pressure on and kept playing our game that we would eventually find the net and that’s what happened.”
Possession belonged to the Lady Cougars for nearly all of the first 45 minutes, however Columbus State was unable to get a shot into the net. The match went to the half scoreless, despite CSU leading 11-0 in shots and 10-0 in corner kicks.
The match didn’t stay scoreless for long after the halftime break though, as CSU tallied a pair of goals in a 30-second span in the 50th minute.
The first score of the night came courtesy of Young Harris (2-4-0, 1-2-0). Tehgan Anguilm swung a corner kick in from the right side that was deflected in by a YHC defender.
Twenty-four seconds later, Maddy Peterson played a long through ball from midfield to Brooke Nail, who took a touch and then sent home a shot from outside the box. The goal was the second in as many matches for the senior.
In the 59th minute, the Lady Cougars got on the board again. Olivia Jarrell sent a cross into the box from the left side, where Peterson touched it off for Riley Clark to finish. Clark now has five goals on the season.
Bria Riancho recorded her second shutout of the season, as the Lady Cougars outshot Young Harris 21-4 on the evening.
Columbus State is back at home on Saturday to take on Clayton State. Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the Walden Soccer Complex.
