Grace Ladies Play To Draw At Nationals
KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The Grace College women’s soccer team played to a scoreless draw with Point Loma Nazarene in the opening game of pool play at NCCAA Nationals Monday.
The match featured strong defensive performances by both sides, including a few strong saves by senior Carmen Barnhill.
Grace was strong in possession in the first half, limiting the Sea Lions’ offensive possessions. The Lady Lancers (11-6-3) had the best look of the opening period when a long free kick was directed dangerously toward PLNU’s goal. The Sea Lions’ goalkeeper punched the ball above the crossbar, however. …
The Lady Lancers face a rematch with Judson University on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the final pool play game. Grace, who beat Judson 2-1 on Aug. 22, will hope to win and secure an automatic bid to Friday’s semifinals.
