#22 Pirates Sink Falcons, 3-0

MONTEVALLO, Ala. – The University of Montevallo women's soccer team (4-10-0, 2-5-0 PBC) fell 3-0 to #22 Armstrong Atlantic State University (10-2-1, 7-0-0 PBC). The Falcons came out on fire in the first 10 minutes as they dominated possession and had a number of breakaway chances. The Pirates withstood the storm and eventually scored the first goal of the game at the 12:16 mark and took over from that point on.

UM took six shots with two on goal while the Pirates had 16 shots with nine on frame. Senior Kristin Roasato (Pinson, Ala./Clay-Chalkville) led the Falcons with three shots including a pair on goal.

Kristina Pascutti scored the opening goal of the game just 12 minutes in as she chested down a cross from Mary Margaret Davis and dribbled the ball past the Falcon keeper for the 1-0 lead.  Davis struck 18 minutes later as she collected a bad clearance from the Falcon defense and whipped it into the Falcon goal for a 2-0 lead.

UM played tough on defense in the second half as they held the Pirates off the board until the 89th minute as Emily Cattanach stole the ball and dribbled it 40 yards to beat the UM keeper for the 3-0 lead.

Junior Alyssa Maxwell (Surrey, British Columbia/Semiahmoo) made her second-straight start in goal for the Falcons as she made six saves in the loss.

The Falcons will return to action Monday, Oct. 17 at 5:00 p.m. as they host former conference rival the University of West Georgia.
