CEDAR CREST FALLS TO VALLEY FORGE 3-0 IN SEASON OPENER
Phoenixville, PA (September 3, 2010) – Cedar Crest opened the 2010 soccer season and the reign of new head coach Nicole Pietrobon with a 3-0 road loss at Valley Forge Christian College.
The first half was all Valley Forge as the Patriots, playing their second game of the season, got off 17 shots to Cedar Crest's two. All three Valley Forge goals came in the first half. After some defensive halftime adjustments, Cedar Crest held the hosts to just four shots in the second half. The Falcons, however, could not climb out of the hole in which they found themselves with just five shots for the game.
One bright spot was the goalkeeper play of sophomore Steph Carroll (Burlington, CT/Lewis S. Mills), who had 10 saves in a complete game in goal.
Cedar Crest drops to 0-1 overall on the season, while Valley Forge improves to 1-1.
The Falcons will play at non-league opponent DeSales University on Sunday, September 5, at 12:00 p.m.
