PACIFIC 3, GEORGE FOX 1: Boxers Overcome Bruins with Trio of Goals in 2nd Half
Written by Blair Cash    Wednesday, 06 November 2013 16:24   

NEWBERG, Ore.– Hannah Harder’s team-leading third goal of the season gave George Fox University a 1-0 lead at halftime, but the Bruins were unable to hold visiting Pacific University in check in the second half as the Boxers rallied for a 3-1 win in Northwest Conference women’s soccer action Sunday here at the Austin Sports Complex.

 

Harder’s goal came at 32:37 of the first half after the Boxers had narrowly missed two good scoring opportunities, one by McKenna Davidson that was stopped by Bruin keeper Alyssa Montero and a header by Chandler Bowen off a corner kick that missed the left post by about six inches.  Michelle Young sent a corner kick from the right into the box, where the ball touched down momentarily before Harder knocked it into the net from about three yards out.

 

Pacific struck back quickly with a pair of goals in the first ten-and-a-half minutes of the second half. The Boxers tied the score when a throw-in from the left side by Kamryn Plechot was headed on by Kara Lankey, and Ashley Park-Hunt sent it inside the far post at the 46:47 mark.  Nine minutes later, the Boxers took the lead off a well-placed cross from near the right sideline by Lankey to the far post, where Park-Hunt immediately reversed it into the right corner of the net for her fourth score of the year.

 

The Boxers added an insurance goal at 80:19 following a George Fox foul in the box.  Davidson, who drew the foul, stepped up for the penalty kick and drilled it inside the right post for her 10th goal of the season.

 

Pacific finished with a 25-5 advantage in total shots, 8-4 in shots on goal, and 12-1 in corner kicks.  Davidson led the Boxers with seven shots, three on goal, while Harder and Becca Allen had two shots each to pace the Bruins, Allen on target with both of hers.  In the net, Montero added five saves to her league-leading figure, now at 144, and Kristina Morris had three saves for the Boxers.
