Miller Scores First Goal; Pride Women’s Soccer Falls 5-1
HAMMOND, Ind. – Despite freshman Megan Miller (Griffith, Ind./Griffith) scoring her first career goal to kick off the game’s scoring Sunday, the Purdue Northwest women’s soccer team dropped a non-conference game to visiting Davenport University (Mich.), 5-1, at Pepsi Field in Dowling Park in Hammond, Ind.  Junior Kelley Sharp (Seymour, Ind./Seymour) finished the game with 11 saves playing all 90 minutes in goal for the Pride.     

Things looked promising for PNW in the early minutes of the game when Miller scored off a rebounded shot attempt in the game’s eighth minute.  Purdue Northwest held the 1-0 advantage until the 30th minute when the Panthers tied things up with a goal by senior Lacey Chanady.  A minute later, DU took the 2-1 lead on a goal by sophomore Sabrina Stone off an assist by sophomore Roheema Bennett. 

Leading 2-1 at the half, Davenport pulled away in the second half scoring three more goals in the 50th, 78th and 86th minutes, respectively.  The Panthers held a 22-4 advantage for total shots in the game, including a 16-3 edge for shots on goal. 

The Pride (0-4-0 overall) return to action on Friday, September 22, with their Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) game against Northern Michigan.  The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. CT start at Pepsi Field.
