Women's Soccer Unbeaten Streak Ends in Last Minute Loss at Chapman
|Shots (on goal)
ORANGE, Calif. - Andrea Aldama scored with just 42 seconds left in regulation to snap a long unbeaten streak, and a long shutout streak, for Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's soccer as the Athenas fell 1-0 on the road on Saturday at Chapman Stadium.
CMS had been 5-0-1 in its last six games, all shutouts, and did not allow a goal for a span of 712 minutes, or just shy of 12 hours of soccer, before the Panthers converted late. The Athenas slip to 6-6-2 overall and 5-4-1 in the SCIAC with the loss, while Chapman improves to 5-4-5 overall and 4-3-3 in the league with the win.
Sadie Brown had five saves for CMS, which played with only 10 players for the last 20 minutes after a red card. Brown made her fifth save with 13 minutes to go, and it appeared that the Athenas would be able to come away with the 0-0 tie before Aldama was able to come through with the clutch game-winner.
Aaliyah Bustamonte had four saves for Chapman, denying Kaitlyn Helfrich early in the fourth minute, and then two shots on frame from Tori Holden and one from Ava Allen. CMS ended up with a 6-1 edge in corner kicks in the defeat.
The Athenas will try to get back in the win column on Wednesday with a big battle at home against Cal Lutheran, which will visit Pritzlaff Field with an undefeated 13-0-3 record on the season.
