Capital's offense too much for women's soccer

BEXLEY, Ohio -- A six minute window was the difference in a tough road loss for the Heidelberg University women's soccer team. The Student Princes fell to Capital University, 3-0, with all three goals in the short span.

Heidelberg could not capitalize on a scoring opportunity in the first half, with Erica Campbell's shot being saved by the Capital keeper.

Capital striker Carlee Murray finally broke through in the 60th minute with a shot into the lower left corner from the top of the box.

Four minutes later, Capital took advantage of a penalty kick opportunity, freezing HU goalkeeper Alexandra Farmer.

The Crusaders tacked on a final goal just over a minute later. Capital had plenty of opportunities to put the goal out of reach, but Farmer kept the Student Princes within striking distance.

Farmer made seven saves in the match. Capital outshot the Berg 27-7 on the evening.

The Student Princes conclude their regular season Saturday afternoon at Wilmington. Game time is slated for 1 p.m. Heidelberg will need some help coupled with a win to clinch the No. 6 seed in the Ohio Athletic Conference Tournament.
