Women's Soccer Drops Close Match To CRC

The women's soccer team hosted a feisty Cosumnes River squad in pouring rain Friday afternoon, but despite controlling possession time and outshooting the Hawks, lost 1-0.   The Hawks' lone goal came off a free kick from 20 yards out late in the first half; it struck the crossbar, the ground, the goalkeeper, then trickled over the line for the only goal of the match.   With the loss, the Falcons find themselves in fourth place in the Big 8 Conference at 5-3-1 (10-3-1 overall) but still within striking distance of the teams ahead of them.  The Falcons continue the second half of the Big 8 schedule by hosting conference leader Santa Rosa (7-2) on Tuesday afternoon at 3:30.
