With the number three spot of the conference rankings on the line, North Florida women’s soccer team(9-4 overall, 3-2 ASUN) sealed a win over Kennesaw State(6-6-3 overall,1-3-1 ASUN) with an early goal on the road on Oct.8.

“The conference this year is very tight and every point is crucial,” said Head Coach Robin Confer said. Just two days before, the Ospreys fell to Lipscomb in a 1-0 defeat for their fourth loss of the season.

As they made their way to Georgia for the game, the Ospreys came ready to battle and snatch the win.  The Ospreys made it apparent that they did not want to lose two games in a row and fought hard early in the match to score.

Freshman Thais Reiss scored the first and only goal of the game at the 16 minute mark to give the Ospreys a 1-0 lead. Reiss, assisted by junior forward Krista Colubiale, took only a single shot in the entire game which counted the most for the Ospreys.

“Krista did a great job of solving two players and playing a great pass to Thais who finished it nicely,” Confer said.

Hoping to score a goal, the Owls did their best to try to break through the Osprey’s defense. Unable to convert any of their shots to goals to tie, Kennesaw State fell 1-0.

North Florida will return home and battle Stetson on Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Hodges Stadium.
