ARLINGTON, Va. – A breezy day at Long Bridge Park on Saturday afternoon had a clash between two Capital Athletic Conference opponents, as the Marymount women's soccer team fell behind in the second half to York College of Pennsylvania for a 4-1 decision.
An offensive stalemate saw plenty of action in the second half, as five goals found the back of the net in a 27-minute span.
In the 62nd minute, the Spartans struck first, seeing a loose ball in the 18-yard box connect with the foot of York's Noelle Spinosa for the unassisted finish and 1-0 lead.
Five minutes later, York added a second before a foul inside the 18-yard box gave the Saints a penalty-kick opportunity to get back into the match. Sophomore defender Gabby Cabrales stepped up for the attempt, sending a liner into the left side of the net to get within one, 2-1.
The offensive push for the Saints wouldn't hold up, however, as York put away two more before the end of the match to take the 4-1 decision.
The women will look to bounce back on Tuesday, October 3, hosting Wesley College for another CAC matchup at Long Bridge Park. First touch is scheduled for 7 p.m.
