Box Score

KENNESAW, Ga. - Kennesaw State's Caitlin Dingle scored a pair of goals in the second half to help the Owls down the Jacksonville University women's soccer team, 3-1, on Thursday night in Atlantic Sun Conference action at the KSU Soccer Complex.

"We were pleased with what we showed in the first half," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "We felt like we found a way to attack and match up with one of the best teams in the conference. In the second half, Kennesaw's maturity took over and we were not able to do the same things we did in the first half. Hopefully we can get back on track against East Tennessee State on Saturday."

With the score tied at 1-1 in the second half, Dingle gave the Owls (6-1-2, 2-0-1 A-Sun) the game-winning goal by scoring at the 69-minute mark on an assist from Mayle Attin-Johnson. Dingle put the game out of reach after scoring on a give-and-go from Laura Tucker with less than 11 minutes remaining.

Sophomore Keri Zwikker scored her third goal of the season on a mid-field pass from Jenny Borschel to tie the game for the Dolphins (5-5-0, 0-2-0 A-Sun) with less than five minutes remaining in the first half.

The Owls took the initial lead in the game when Tucker scored her third goal of the season on a shot to the right corner 24 minutes into the first half.

Despite the loss, senior goalkeeper Michelle Kmiotek set a career high with 15 saves on 33 shots in the match.

The Dolphins wrap up their road trip in Johnson City, Tenn., on Saturday as they take on East Tennessee State at 2 p.m.
