Hartsville, SC- The Coker Women’s Soccer Team earned what Head Coach Tim Wolz called, “a great win”, as they defeated North Greenville University 3-2 in a non-conference collegiate soccer match Tuesday afternoon. Wolz was very excited about the win, “For the first time this season we played as a team for the full 90 minutes, we were mentally tough and it really paid off for us.”
North Greenville was first to strike scoring just 15 minutes into the game. Danielle Duff received a pass from Whitney Doublestein and then chipped a shot just over the head of Coker keeper Krista Coleman for a 1-0 lead. The Cobras answered just 10 minutes later when Megan Shaver hit a one-time cross from Laura Bedenbaugh into the back of the net. The score remained tied at one through the first half, until Doublestein gave the Crusaders the lead again just three minutes into the second half.
Coker would even the score again in the 61st minute when Shaver scored her second goal of the game, this time off a penalty kick. Then with just seconds remaining in the game, Bedenbaugh gave the Cobras the win when she chipped the game winning ball over the head of Jessica Binkley and into the back of the net.
The Lady Cobras next match will be on Saturday, September 23, as they travel to Lees-McRae for a 2:00 p.m. game.
