PIKEVILLE – The University of Pikeville women’s soccer team held a brief 1-0 lead in the 13th minute, but visiting Bryan struck for two first-half goals and two more in the second to erase the deficit and top the Bears 4-1 at the Bob Amos Complex on Tuesday.
Jasmine Davis scored UPIKE’s goal, and at that point it looked like the Bears were ready to stay in control for 90 minutes. But slowly the shots started to form for Bryan which took a 6-4 advantage in shot attempts into halftime.
Bryan’s equalizer came in the 30th minute from Hana Mizoguchi, followed by the winning goal from Sarah Catharine Baker in the 34th. 52nd and 58th minute strikes from Elizabeth Cawthorne and Allyse Reece, respectively, put the game away.
After taking some time to get rolling in the first 45 minutes, the Lions were roaring in the later stages, tallying a 6-2 shot advantage in the second half, led by Elizabeth Miller off the bench with three attempts.
Despite the 4-1 score, both team’s keepers finished with three saves each in Bryan’s Morgana Hardt da Silva and UPIKE’s Caitlyn Hunt, who was making her first start in goal of the season.
