Dolphin Women Breeze Past Charleston Southern

September 13, 1999

Jacksonville, Fla. - Jacksonville University (2-2) defeated Charleston Southern University (1-4) by the score of 4-1 at Jacksonville's Ashley Sports Complex on Saturday afternoon.

Charleston Southern's Betsy Lapp opened the game's scoring by chipping a beautiful shot over the Dolphins goalkeeper, Kristin Kirsch, in the 16th minute of play. Jacksonville quickly tied the match on a successful free kick by junior Marit Foss just seven minutes later. The score remained tied at 1-1 going into the second half of play.

The score remained even until Dolphin junior Stine Kloster took a pass from Foss, broke through two defenders and beat the Buccaneers' goal keeper, Susan Anderson, to put the Dolphin's up 2-1 in the 51st minute of play. Jacksonville's Foss played a role in the Dolphins third goal as well, helping the Buccaneers seal their own fate on an own-goal. After playing a ball in from a corner kick, a Charleston Southern player made a diving attempt at a clear, the resulting header rippled the net for an own-goal and a 3-1 Dolphin lead at the 61 minute mark. Less then 10 minutes later, Kloster finished a cross from junior Trine Riis Groven for her second goal to complete the game's scoring. Jacksonville's Kirsch ended the game with eight shots on goal and five saves. The Dolphins out shot Charleston Southern 19-8.

Jacksonville hopes to return junior defender Karen Novak and sophomore goalkeeper Melissa Cancio to the starting eleven before they begin Trans America Athletic Conference play on Thursday, September 16th when they take on rival Georgia State in Atlanta at 4:00 P.M. They'll continue conference play on Saturday, September 18th at Campbell University at 5:00 P.M.
