Soccer Drops ODAC Opener

Soccer Drops ODAC Opener

ROANOKE, Va. -- The Hollins soccer team opened their 2019 ODAC slate on Friday, welcoming Ferrum College to Marjorie T. Berkley Field. 

Unfortunately, the HU offense couldn't get anything going as the Panthers knocked off Hollins 3-0, ending HU's three-match win streak. 

Hollins' defense was strong in the first half, keeping Ferrum off the board through the first 38 minutes but in the 39th minute, a non-clear found the back of the net for Ferrum and gave them a 1-0 lead. They added two more insurance goals in the second half, the final coming in the 89th minute. 

Kendra Rich had 15 saves on the day, some of them spectacular diving saves, to keep Hollins in the match until the end.  

 

What's Next

Hollins will have a week off before traveling to VA Wesleyan next Saturday for another conference matchup. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 am.
