Second Half Pushes Bethel Past Leafs

Two goals midway through the second half proved enough for Bethel

GOSHEN, Ind. — A pair of goals midway through the second half handed the Goshen College women’s soccer team its second consecutive 2-0 loss in Crossroads League play Wednesday against rival Bethel College at the John Ingold Athletic Complex.

Goshen (3-6-1, 0-2 CL) registered just eight total shots and two on goal in the 90-minute affair. Leaf leading scorer Taliah Borom was the only GC starter to post a shot around the frame in her three tries. Allison Ebersole led the Leafs in total shots with four. Junior Mara Beck was the lone GC substitute to try her hand at adding her name to the scoring column with one shot on goal in as many tries.

Goshen goaltender Katie Baer put in her fair share of work on the evening as she tallied nine saves in 11 tries. Bethel (3-6-2, 1-1 CL) tests the Leaf defenders with 21 total shots.

Kama Hardy tabbed the first goal of the evening in the 67th minute followed by an insurance claim just three minutes later by Sophia Bell. Both goals were assisted by Bethel’s Lauren Hostetler. Hardy’s goal in the 67th was not done with her feet as she snuck a one-touch header past Baer. The second goal, scored in the 70th minute by Bell, came in due time for the freshman as she led all players with seven shots and four on goal.

The loss keeps Goshen on the bottom of the early season CL standings in a tie with Grace, Saint Francis and Indiana Wesleyan. The Bethel victory pushes the Pilots to a third-place tie with Taylor while Marian and Huntington lay claim to the top spot at 2-0.

The Goshen women will take to the road in their next outing as they travel to Fort Wayne to face the University of Saint Francis. Action is set to begin at 7 p.m.
