BANNER ELK, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College Women's soccer team fell Saturday night to Erskine by a score of 2-1. With the loss, Lees-McRae's record now sits at 0-5-0 on the season.

The Bobcats played well for large portions of the match, highlighted by a Pali Smith goal on a beautiful cross from Lindsey Fletcher. The goal and assist were the first of the year for both Smith and Fletcher. At that moment, the score would be tied 1-1 until a late Erskine goal proved to be the difference in the match.

Makayla Willets saw her first action of the year on Saturday, coming into the match at the halftime break. Willets made three saves on four shots and picked up the loss, making her 0-1-0 on the season.

The Bobcats will return to action next Saturday when they take on Mount Olive on the road. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
