The Central Connecticut women's soccer team out-shot the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers 24-12, including a handful of well-placed attempts at goal, but was unable to match point in a 1-0 loss on Sunday, Oct. 1 at Waldron Family Stadium in Emmitsburg, MD. Leading the offensive brigade was juniors Danielle Pearse and Charlotte Maurer who tallied four shots apeice.

In the game's 64th minute the Mountaineers found the back of the net on a header from Chloe Cain. The Mount's Jenna West administered the assist. Looking for an answer, in the 73rd minute of action Pearse almost tied up the score on a header that floated about a yard wide of the post.

Junior Ashley Cavanaugh recorded a season high eight saves in the loss and now holds a record of 4-6. Senior Jennifer Cafferky and freshman Jenna Rae Covello added three strikes each. CCSU also held a slight 9-7 advantage in corners on the afternoon.
