Solid GSW defense not enough to upset No. 10 Armstrong Atlantic

A converted penalty kick was all No. 10 Armstrong Atlantic State University could muster against a stingy Georgia Southwestern defense for the first 63 minutes of Saturday's women's soccer match at Hurricane Field. AASU added a goal at the 63:19 mark and went on to a 2-0 victory.

GSW was whistled for taking down an Armstrong player inside the box in the ninth minute and Emily Cattanach gave the Pirates a 1-0 lead when she converted the penalty kick for her fourth goal of the season.

Morgan Mitchell provided the insurance goal for AASU (5-0-2, 2-0 PBC) when she headed a pass from Erin O'Rourke for her second score in 2010.

GSW goalkeeper Courtney Allison finished with eight saves.

Southwestern (2-6, 0-2) travels to Lander on Saturday for a 1 p.m. match.
