Belles Drop 2-1 Contest to Britons

Box Score (pdf)

ALBION, Mich. -- For the eighth time this season, the Saint Mary's soccer team fell by a one goal margin as they lost 2-1 to Albion College in the regular season finale.

In a well-played contest, neither team was able to get on the scoreboard until late in the first half when Albion punched in a goal less than four minutes before the half.

The Belles took little time in the second half to respond.  Less than six minutes into the half, Sam Smogor laced a pass to Micki Hedinger, who then slid the ball through the Albion keeper's arms and into the right side of the net to tie the score at 1-1.

It would then be the Britons who responded with a goal, which came in the 58th minute and proved to be the game-winner.

Patty Duffy had five saves in goal for the Belles.

Saint Mary's (#8) will travel to Calvin College (#1) on Saturday, November 1 for the first round of the MIAA Tournament.  The contest is scheduled to begin at noon.
