Sept. 15, 2006
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville University women's soccer team rallied from behind twice to down Elon, 3-2, on Friday night in the Third-Annual Kick Out Cancer Soccer Tournament at the Ashley Sports Complex.
"Our team really grew up tonight," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "We come from behind twice with some advesity, which is a great precursor for conference play next week. Everyone did well in the game and that is what you need to earn a victory.
The Phoenix (3-4) led initially in the first half after Alisa Petitt scored on a breakaway.
Howland tied the game less than nine minutes later on a header from an assist by sophomore Michelle Lavine.
In the second half, the Phoenix took a 2-1 lead when Katina Boozer scored in front of the net at the 79-minute mark.
Senior Michelle Kmiotek tallied six saves between the posts in the Dolphins victory.
"Elon played an excellent game," said Kouns. "Give them credit because they tested us from the start. We have to carry this success over into Sunday and hopefully take care of business."
The Dolphins wrap up the tournament on Sunday against Maryland-Baltimore Country at 2 p.m.
