After dominating possession for the majority of regulation, the Panther Women’s soccer team suffered their second overtime loss this week, falling 2-1 to Southern Vermont College at home Wednesday night.

Junior Captain Kate Martin (Westmoreland, N.H.) had the lone goal for Plymouth State. Plymouth rattled off 13 shots in the first half, and did not allow for Southern Vermont to tally a shot in the opening 45 minutes of play. A number of chances for Plymouth resulted in neutral results, despite two one-on- one opportunities, and two shots that would ring the crossbar.

After the half, Southern Vermont kicked their play into a higher gear. Just two minutes in, Southern Vermont’s first set piece inside 25 yards resulted in a 1-0 lead. Three straight attacks, followed by a trip set up Ally MacNamee (Freehold, N.J.), who struck a perfectly placed ball into the top of the net.

Plymouth regrouped and retook control of the midfield, firing off four shots before getting the equalizer. A corner kick off the right foot of freshman Mallory Lloyd (Hartland, VT.) was placed perfectly onto the head of Kate Martin, who knotted it up at 1-1.

The Plymouth offense continued to attack, with three more golden opportunities in regulation halted by the crossbar.

Just five minutes into overtime, Releigh Griffiths (Milford, N.Y.) ended the match when a ball, that crossed into the 18 yard box, was  deflected and found the back of the net.

“When it comes down to it, you have to capitalize on the opportunities that are presented,” said Plymouth State head coach Ryan Joy. “I’m happy with how the team performed, but we had opportunities that we couldn’t make the most of.”

Plymouth finished with 23 total shots compared to 4 from Southern Vermont. Melissa Mascari (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) made 10 saves in the Mountaineers victory, while junior Leandra Nault (Goffstown, N.H.) dropped her first game of the season with two saves on three shots.

Plymouth returns home Saturday to take on UMass Dartmouth in their first Little East Conference match of the season.
