Oct. 12 – GAMBIER, Ohio - Despite a strong, second-half effort, the Hiram College women's soccer team dropped a 3-1 decision to Kenyon College in North Coast Athletic Conference action on Wednesday afternoon.
The first half was controlled by the hosts, as the ladies got on the board in the third minute thanks to a goal by Emma Klug.
15 minutes later, Kenyon (5-5-2, 3-0-1 NCAC), who entered the game tied at the top of the conference standings, tallied their second goal, getting a header of a corner kick from Brianna Maggard. Maggard would notch her second of the game in the 43rd minute, and the Terriers would enter the half trailing 3-1.
The field tilted in favor of the hosts in the first 45 minutes, as the Ladies outshot the Terriers by a margin of 13-4, including five shots on net.
In the second half, the Terriers (3-8-1, 0-4 NCAC) showed their fight, as they controlled the later stages of the match. Hiram outshot Kenyon 10-1 in the closing stanza, placing four of their ten shots on goal.
The Terriers broke through in the 84th minute, when Allie Glatt directed a deflection off the keeper into the back of the net. The assist was given to Jasmine Kemp, as her shot led to the deflection and eventual goal.
The assist marked the first of the year for Kemp, while Glatt is now tied for the team lead in goals with Katelyn Mauch (4). Glatt also upped her point total to 12 on the season, and 77 for her career, sitting just six away from the all-time career mark.
