LEXINGTON, Ky. – The road woes continued for the Heidelberg University women's soccer team on Saturday as they fell 1-0 to Transylvania. Through their nine matches this season, they are 4-1 at home but 0-4 on the road.
The first half saw the Student Princes control a slight edge in possession, as they out-shot the Pioneers 6-4. That included a 4-2 edge in shots on goal in the period.
Despite that edge, Transylvania was able to get on the board first when they had a breakaway in the 44th minute. Erin Miller got past the Berg defense, made one move, and rolled the ball underneath a diving Alexandra Farmer to give the home team the 1-0 lead headed into halftime.
The second half saw both sides turn up their defense, as neither team was able to break through. With Transy holding the slim lead late in the contest, Brittany Yost got a shot on goal, but it was saved in the 82nd minute. That would be the final shot attempt on goal by the Berg as they were unable to find the equalizer.
Transylvania out-shot Heidelberg 9-2 in the second period as the Berg struggled to find their rhythm on offense.
The Student Princes will return home to the friendly confines of the Hidden Valley Soccer Complex for their next match when they take on Bluffton. That contest is scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
