The Golden Eagles (2-9-2, 2-8-1 PSAC) played a sound game overall but came up just short against the Golden Knights.

“We had several moments in the game where we could have snatched a goal,” head coach Sean Esterhuizen said of his team’s effort. “Honestly, it was an excellent performance filled with strong tackling and disciplined play. Despite being outshot, we played a strong second half and kept Gannon on their heels for long stretches.”

Clarion’s strongest chance came in the 40th minute when Stephanie Lias split the defense and Meliah Romanwent one-on-one with the keeper. Roman just narrowly missed on the shot and Gannon escaped the half unscathed and with a 1-0 lead.

Anna Chamberlin had an opportunity to tie the game in the second half as well, intercepting a ball from goalkeeper Shannon Differ but missing the shot attempt wide. Clarion finished with two shots on net in the second half of action.

Krista Mosi did her part to keep the Golden Eagles in the game, making a total of 13 saves over the course of 90 minutes of action. The Golden Knights finished the game with 27 total shots but most were not threats to Mosi, who turned away all but one shot put on net.
