MIAMI SHORES, Fla.- After a scheduling conflict relocated today’s game to the familiar confines of their South Florida neighbors, the Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s soccer team (2-2) returns home frustrated by their 5-0 loss to Sunshine State Conference foe Barry University (2-2).
The evening was characterized by the strong outpouring of offense from the Buccaneer side, consisting of goals from four different BU players, with two coming from the likes of Emma Karp. Outshooting the Fish by a game total of 22-4, the Bucs scored twice in the first 45 minutes of play only to pepper in three more throughout the remainder of the competition.
The defensive play of the Buccaneers frustrated PBA’s efforts to get into any sort of offensive rhythm. “Tonight was a tough loss. We simply did not play our best,” commented head coach James Kryger.
“Barry played very well and we struggled to get our offense in gear. This was another night and a different situation, but we’ll continue to keep the wheels turning. We’ll be back at it tomorrow,” continued a hopeful Kryger.
Despite a tough loss, freshman goalkeeper Allison Fox earned her fourth straight start for the Sailfish as she held off 11 close calls from the pesky BU offense in her 90 minutes of play.
PBA looks to hold onto a plus .500 record early on this season as they turn right around to participate in a cross-state matchup versus the Gyrenes of Ave Maria University. That match is set to take place at 4:00 pm tomorrow, September 14th in Ave Maria, Florida.
