Late stretch dooms Lady ‘Canes

For a little over 75 minutes on Wednesday evening the Georgia Southwestern women's soccer team played a scoreless match with Georgia College in Milledgeville. Then, in the span of six and a half minutes, GCSU put the Lady Hurricanes away with three goals and went on to the 3-0 victory.

Katie Taylor broke the deadlock in the 76th minute with a score off a corner kick. Taylor struck again 2:26 later for her fourth goal of the season and Anna Wierzbicki put a shot from 20 yards out over GSW goalkeeper Courtney Allison for the final score at the 81:40 mark.

Allison finished with nine saves. Mary Rob Plunkett stopped two for GCSU.

Georgia College (3-3) held a 13-2 shots on goal advantage for the match and led 12-2 in corner kicks.

Southwestern (2-5) returns home to host No. 10 Armstrong Atlantic on Saturday at 5 p.m.
