Bobcats Cant Beat Big Cats

MELBOURNE, Fla. (Women’s Soccer) – The Florida Tech Panthers lifted their record
overall record to 8-4-1 with a 1-0 win over the Saint Thomas University Bobcats. Florida Tech’s conference record stands at 2-3-1.   This match proved
to be a battle of defense. There were only 20 shots taken on the day, 12 by Saint Thomas and eight by Florida Tech. Sophomore goalkeeper Melissa Pyles was only forced to make
four saves and the Panthers were able to place four shots on goal for a shot-on-goal percentage of 50 percent.   The ball went back and forth for most
of the match but neither team could capitalize on any opportunities. Then late in the 85th minute, it seemed as if freshman midfielder Alyssa Esposito had simply had enough.
She dribbled seemingly through the entire Bobcat team and came out on top in a one-on-one with the Saint Thomas goalkeeper for her second goal of the
season.   Other Panther players that got in on the action with shots of their own included freshman defender DeeDee Newland, freshman midfielder
Matilda Östergaard,
sophomore midfielder Therese
, freshman midfielder Kelli Ragan, freshman midfielder
Sara Lewis and freshman
defender Chrissie
.   The Panthers will see their next action this Saturday with an alumni match at 2 p.m. in Melbourne, Fla. They will follow that
up with a match-up against Warner Southern at 3 p.m. in Melbourne on Sunday.   BOX SCORE
