Bobcats win in OT

FROSTBURG — Dorie Gedridge blasted home the game- winning shot in the 65th minute to push the Frostburg State University women’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over McDaniel in non-conference action, Wednesday at Frostburg State.

The win improves the Bobcats’ overall record to 9-3-1 while McDaniel settles at 6-6-1.

The cold temperature and rainy conditions during the first half of play appeared to slow the pace down for both teams early on. The first shot came just over six minutes into action as Bobcat junior Courtney Mack hit a ball wide of the net.

The Bobcats’ next attempt was a solid chance for the first goal. FSU drew a corner kick at 7:12 and Liz Seligman sent a cross into the box that was headed on goal by sophomore Stephanie Fazenbaker, a Mountain Ridge graduate. However, her header went directly to Green Terror keeper Jan Woolley for the save.

McDaniel’s first shot came at 23:19, but Katie Little’s shot was stopped by Bobcat keeper Katie Smith.

Frostburg attempted three-straight shots over a 1:13 stretch late in the opening half. Mack and freshman Kelsey Wentworth had two opportunities at 40:42 and again at 41:55, but Woolley stopped both shots to keep the game knotted at 0-0 at intermission.

The second half started much faster than the first as each team had chances in the opening minutes. McDaniel’s Julia Pope had the first shot of the second that was saved by Smith while a Fazenbaker shot for the Bobcats was saved by Woolley at 47:40.

At 62:48, Seligman slid a nearly 30 yard pass through the middle of the defense towards the far corner flag to a charging Fazenbaker, who hit a low shot just right of the far post.

Just 1:18 later, Frostburg struck for the game’s only tally. Gedridge took a pass in the middle of the field from junior Chelsea Paskowski. She dribbled around a defender and ripped a nearly 25 yard shot over the outstretched keeper and into the net for the 1-0 lead.

Smith made two saves for Frostburg inside the final seven minutes of action to help preserve the win. Smith stopped a Kelly Purcell shot at 83:34 and later made a running save on a Sam Wilson shot at 88:22.

Frostburg attempted 10 shots in each half and held a 20-9 edge overall. Smith totaled four saves for the win and her second shutout of the season. Woolley finished with eight saves for the Green Terror.

Frostburg returns to action this Saturday with a home CAC contest against Wesley at 4:30 p.m.
