Dolphins Battle Tough Kennesaw State Defense on the Road

KENNESAW, Ga. – The Jacksonville University women's soccer team (1-9-1, 1-2-0 ASUN) put its best foot forward against a tough Kennesaw State (9-3-1, 2-1-0 ASUN) squad on Friday night on the road but a stifling defense kept the Dolphins off the board in defeat, 2-0.

Jacksonville managed just five shots on the night, while its all-everything goalkeeper Brittany Hundley continued to make her case as the best net-minder in the league, making seven more saves to up her season total to 60. That total is inching ever closer to being a top 10 season in program history. Hundley already ranks seventh all-time with 147 saves in her career, 15 shy of moving into a tie for sixth.

Julianne Hutchison paced the offense, firing a trio of shots, one of which was on frame while Sarah Alexander and Rachel Henry also challenged the Owl goalkeeper with their lone shots. The Dolphins kept KSU at bay early on, sending this one to the locker rooms knotted at zero but a pair of scores in the second half in the 53rd and 59th minutes spoiled the effort for JU.

Jacksonville returns home on Sunday to welcome NJIT to Southern Oak Stadium. That match will kick off at 1 p.m. and will be the final in the month of September. Just four matches remain beyond this weekend as the push for the postseason is officially on.
