Raiders take hit on road
IRVINE, Calif. — Southern Oregon surrendered three second-half goals and dropped a 4-1 decision to the fifth-ranked Concordia (Calif.) women's soccer team Sunday afternoon.
The Eagles (5-2) broke a 1-1 tie in the 58th minute when Megan Daniels finished Lauren Nanez's cross from the left side of the field. Alexandra Gerrain and Val Barrios added insurance goals in the 71st and 78th minutes.
Lauren Aldana scored her first goal of the season for the Raiders (1-6), heading in Haylee Eckart's cross for the equalizer 78 seconds before halftime. It was one of six shots SOU recorded. Kendra Madaras-Kelly put three on goal.
Alexis Garcia-Irons initially put the Eagles on top three minutes into the match, hitting a shot to the lower-left slot of the goal after receiving a through-pass from Daniels.
Barrios, Elizabeth Abt and Kristen Pepperling also had assists.
Concordia totaled 18 shots, including 14 on goal.
This was the last part of SOU's three-game road trip, the final game of a rigorous nonleague slate and sixth consecutive defeat. The Raiders will begin Cascade Collegiate Conference play at home on Sept. 25 against Evergreen State and Sept. 27 against Northwest University.
