Bobcats fall in double overtime to Emmanuel, 1-0

BANNER ELK, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to Emmanuel in double overtime Saturday afternoon at Tate Field.

Emmanuel tested the Bobcat defense early and often in Saturday's contest. The Lions attempted 26 shots across 105 minutes of action, including 17 on goal. Lees-McRae's goalkeeper Hope Sanborn had a career day making 16 saves on those 17 shots. Unfortunately, Sanborn still took the loss in net moving her record to 0-5-0 on the season.

Offensively, the Bobcats totaled four shots in the contest. The four attempts came courtesy of two players. Autumn Esposito attempted a pair of shots, while Lianna Smith had the other two offensive opportunities for the Bobcats.

Lees-McRae will be back in action on Wednesday when they travel to Lincoln Memorial University for a non-conference matchup. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. from Harrogate, Tennessee.
