Maybe the Charlotte 49ers women’s soccer team missed the comforts of home this weekend. After a whitewashing of College of Charleston at Transamerica Field on Friday, they were topped at Davidson early in the 2nd overtime on Sunday, dropping their record to 5-3 on the season.
Charlotte 6, College of Charleston 0
Jessica Ryan got the goalscoring started early with a great cross off of SarahAnn Waugh in the game’s fifth minute to make it 1-0. It remained that way until the 36th minute, when Kaitlin Walker’s shot was dropped just over the goal line for the freshman’s first career goal to raise Charlotte’s margin to 2-0. Ryan struck for her second in the 57th minute, followed by Brooke Mulloy’s first of the year over eight minutes later and Alex Meyers’ first about 15 minutes after that. Freshman Perri Bonner got in on the act with her first collegiate goal in the 89th minute for the game’s final tally. Defense was strong in this on as the Cougars only forced Alex Kubrick to make two saves; Charlotte led in shots 20-8.
Davidson 1, Charlotte 0 (2 OT)
The Niners looked destined for their second shutout in as many games as they and the Wildcats were scoreless through 100 minutes. But early in the 2nd overtime, Jenni Isaac took a shot that was mishandled by Kubrick and snuck past the goal line, giving Davidson the win. The Wildcats led 15-10 in shots, with both goalkeepers making it close–Kubrick making five saves and the Wildcats’ Rachel Locke recording four.
Next up: C-USA play. Charlotte travels to FIU on Friday before making the trip up to East Carolina on Sunday.
