The Heidelberg University women’s soccer team traveled to University Heights, Ohio to battle the Blue Streaks of John Carroll University. Under the lights of Don Shula Stadium, the Berg fell to their Ohio Athletic Conference foe, 4-1.
The Heidelberg women move to 3-12-1 overall and 2-6-0 in the OAC.
Senior Krista Blake (Geneva) netted the Berg’s sixth goal of the season in the 81st minute. The goal marks Blake’s first of the 2012 season and the fifth of her career.
With Blake’s goal, Stephanie Crossman (Dayton/Bellbrook) tabbed the first assist of her sophomore season. Crossman has also tallied four shots on goal for the Student Princes.
