Letdowns doom HU

Another great start for the Foresters (2-12, 0-7) fell by the wayside as Taylor University scored four unanswered goals in the second half to dismantle HU 7-2.
Bethany McGraw opened the scoring to give the Foresters a 1-0 lead, but it was short-lived as Taylor immediately came back down the field and tied it up. Two minutes later, the Trojans scored again to take a 2-1 lead. McGraw pulled HU back even with a second goal off a Jennie Stern corner kick, but again Taylor picked up the intensity. They reclaimed the lead a minute later and took the 3-2 advantage to the half.

After changing ends at the break, Taylor now had the wind at their backs and they used it to score four unanswered goals to win going away.

"We have struggled with our intensity after goals this year," said Coach Sharpe. "It happened last game against Marian and we have discussed it on other occasions. We should have been up 2-0 at the end of the half, but instead we gave up the game with our letdowns."
