Box Score

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- - Junior Michelle Kmiotek recorded seven saves, but Kennesaw State score a second half goal to defeat the Jacksonville women's soccer team, 1-0, Sunday afternoon at the Ashley Sports Complex.

Around the 33rd -minute in the second half, Rebecca Hall scored off a Dolphins foul with assist from Pip Meo and Laura Tucker to give the Owls (6-1-1, 2-0 A-Sun) their lone goal.

Freshman Katie Orr and Keri Zwikker had the best opportunities to score for the Dolphins (3-5-2, 1-1 A-Sun). In the first half, Orr had an open shot in front of the goal, but the Owls goalie barely trapped the ball to keep it from going in the goal. Trailing 1-0 in the second half with less than six minutes remaining, Zwikker took a 20-yard shot from the left side, but the Owls goalie was there to snag it down.

"I'm very proud of the effort our team gave and the way we battled for the second game of the weekend," said head coach Chris Kouns. "I'm disappointed that we didn't take advantage of all the scoring opportunities we had. I told the girls that against a well-organized and well-coached Kennesaw those opportunities are the difference between a 1-0 win and 1-0 loss."

The Dolphins returns to action this Friday at 7 p.m. against Florida Atlantic at the Ashley Sports Complex.
