Cougars play hard but come up short against the Eckerd Tritons.

The Cougars played a very solid first half against NCAA II opponent Eckerd College but gave up a goal to Kelly Coughenour when she sent a shot over CCC goalkeeper Charity Nelson's head in the 28th minute. The Cougars had several good opportunities but the Triton's goalie was up to the task and kept the ball out of the net. The Cougars were off to a good start in the second half as well but was charged with a handball at top left corner of the penalty box to give the Tritons a Penalty Kick at the 62nd minute mark that Abbey Walter finished to the left corner of the goal. A 30 minute lighting delay (common for the season) in the middle of the 2nd half made the game long and Eckerd added a third goal late in the second half just prior to an early ending at the 9 minute mark.
