Lady Cougars Travel for Match Against Eckerd College


(10/17/09) St. Petersburg, FL- The Lady Cougars traveled to St. Petersburg for a very tough match against Eckerd College. Coach Bates recognized that this would be a difficult game for the Cougars, since Eckerd College is a NCAA II team. The Lady Cougars came into this game looking to rebound off a dismal performance against Florida College earlier in the week.

Although Eckerd took a commanding 2-0 lead in the first half, the defense played with great intensity and was not intimidated by the great stature that Eckerd College presented. The offense was much more aggressive and won a lot of balls in the midfield which gave the defense an opportunity to regroup. Also, the Lady Cougars held Eckerd College to only one goal in the second half and the game ended with the score 3-0 in favor of Eckerd College. Andrea Dobbs was a standout performer for the Lady Cougars in this game as she contained Eckerd College's best forward for the entire game.

The Lady Cougars will host regional rival Southeastern on Tuesday, October 20.
