Women's soccer falls to Mercer, 3-1
Oct. 8, 2005
MACON, Ga.- - Sophomore Stephanie Elgie scored a goal off the bench, but Mercer scored two second half goals to down the Jacksonville women's soccer team, 3-1, Saturday afternoon in Macon, Ga.
"You have to give a great deal of credit to Mercer," said head coach Chris Kouns. "They out fought us in effort and out played us on the ground. It was a bad day for our freshman to play like freshman and have no upperclassmen leadership; both are things we have been battling with all season."
Trailing 2-0 in the second half, Elgie put the Dolphins (3-6-3, 1-2-1 A-Sun) on the board by beating the Bears goalie one on one for her fourth goal of the season from an assist by freshman Michelle Lavine at the 12-minute mark.
The Bears (5-10, 2-4 A-Sun) scored on a breakaway with less than two minutes remaining in the game to quash the Dolphins) chances of coming back.
The Dolphins return home this Tuesday to face Embry-Riddle at 7 p.m.
