Hill Scores; PNW Women’s Soccer Falls to Tiffin (Ohio), 5-1
HAMMOND, Ind. – Despite a goal by freshman Allie Hill (Valparaiso, Ind./Boone Grove) in the game’s 38th minute, the Purdue Northwest women’s soccer team could not overcome an early 3-0 deficit and fell 5-1 Friday to Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) foe Tiffin University (Ohio) at Pepsi Field in Dowling Park in Hammond, Ind.
The Dragons got off to a hot start scoring goals in the 11th, 22nd and 23rd minutes to build an early 3-0 advantage. Hill recorded her goal from 10 yards out on the right side after taking a cross by junior Shelby Ross (Marquette, Mich./Columbus North) and sending it over the TU keeper to the left corner of the net. Junior Kelley Sharp (Seymour, Ind./Seymour) posted seven saves for the Pride in Friday’s game.
The score remained 3-1 at the break and well into the second half before Tiffin added two more goals to pull away for good. The final two goals came in the 80th and 87th minutes of regulation. TU’s Markella Suka finished with two goals and an assist, while Adrianna Currie tallied a goal and three assists Friday for the Dragons.
