Ly’Shanette Major (0-1) took the loss in goal for Greensboro depiste making 14 saves.
“We played in spurts today,” Head Coach Gus Mota stated following the contest. “We were able to do some nice things but it was not a complete game like we needed. I am proud of my girls because there is not quitting on this team. We will look at film and get ready for Meredith on Wednesday afternoon.”
The Pride women (5-2, 1-1 USA South) will return to action on Wednesday afternoon at Bryan Park. The Pride will welcome the Avenging Angels of Meredith College to town at 4:00 PM. For the latest on the Pride women’s soccer team, continue to follow www.greensborocollegesports.com.
