Box Score

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The JU women's soccer team fell to Kennesaw State, 1-0, in Sunday afternoon's Atlantic Sun matchup at the Ashley Sports Complex.

Freshman goalkeeper Lorna Brownlie made 12 saves for the Dolphins, but it was not enough to prevent the defeat.

"It was unfortunate that we did not bring our best effort and best focus to the first half," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "Against a team like Kennesaw State you can not afford any breakdowns - mentally or physically.

"With one minute left in the first half that one mental breakdown cost us with the game-winning goal."

Senior forward Annie Phillips scored the only goal of the game in the 44th minute after she was put through on goal by junior midfielder Sara Clapham and junior defender Jessica Kalonji.

"We came with more of an effort and determination in the second half," Kouns said. "That created some opportunities. We will need that effort and consistency in order to challenge for another conference title, but first we need to get to the tournament and that will require a strong effort for the next three weeks."

The Dolphins will be in action again on Friday, taking on Florida Gulf Coast at 7:00 p.m. in Ft. Myers, Fla.
