Lady Bobcats Fall to Fleet

Ashley Owens scored two goals in leading Erskine to a convincing 4-0 victory over the Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats in Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference play Saturday afternoon. The loss drops the Lady Bobcats record to 5-9-1, (2-6-1 CVAC).

The home side would take a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute when Sam Saxon sent in a cross from the right side off of a free kick. Owens headed the cross neatly into the corner past the outstretched arms of Lady Bobcat goalkeeper Anita Hekman.

Just six minutes later, the Fleet struck again. This time Jodie Locke followed up a Casey Cash shot that the Hekman could not hold and put the ball in the back of the net to give Erskine a comfortable 2-0 lead heading into the halftime break.

Owens scored her second goal in the 53rd minute, and it was Cash who was again causing problems for the Bobcat defense. Cash broke free down the left side and played the ball across the face of the goal into the path of Owens who buried the ball in the corner to give Erskine the 3-0 advantage.

Kim Barron closed out the scoring for the Fleet in the 84th minute with an insurance marker for the final 4-0 win.

Three of Erskine's four goals were scored by seniors on Senior Day.

The Lady Bobcats hit the field again Thursday October 19th when they travel to Belmont Abbey to take on the defending CVAC Champions. Kick off is set for 2:00p.m.
