Women’s Soccer Falls to Augsburg Posted on September 29th, 2018 by


SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team played host to Augsburg on Saturday afternoon and lost by a score of 2-0. With the loss the Gusties moves to 4-5-1 and 1-3-1 in the MIAC while Augsburg improves to 5-5 and 3-2 in the MIAC.

Following the game, coach Laura Burnett-Kurie said, “We possessed the ball well today, showing our Gustie tempo and we generated a good amount of offense. The next step is finding the back of the net, which will come.”

The game was played even for 89 of the 90 minutes with Gustavus outshooting Augsburg 17-14, but from 11:06 to 12:06 in the first half Augsburg tacked on two goals and that was all they needed to secure the victory. The Gusties had four different players record three shots with Emily Skogseth (Sr., Burnsville, Minn.) and Katie Ashpole (So., Chaska, Minn.) each tallying two shots on goal. Abby Goodno (Fy., Little Canada, Minn.) started in goal for the Gusties and made six saves while allowing two goals.

“Every season is a new puzzle to put together. We are making progress in putting together our puzzle and continue to take steps closer to finishing it,” said Burnett-Kurie. “We have all the pieces, it’s just having them fit together which is an ongoing process.”

The Gusties will next be in action on Wednesday when they host UW-La Crosse for a 4 p.m. contest.
