The Panthers (4-8) are coming off two 1-0 losses to Ohio Valley Conference opponents Belmont and Jacksonville State last week.

The Gamecocks outshot the Panthers, 27-6. Freshman goalkeeper Sara Teteak faced nine shots on goal and saved eight.

Freshman midfielder Cheyenne Carden came away with the game winner in the 74th minute for the Gamecocks that came from a cross from freshman forward Danielle Monroe. Both combined for 11 shots.

Junior goalkeeper Caroline Robinson recorded a shutout and saved two shots.

Freshman Sarah DeWolf recorded a shot on goal along with freshman Angela Corcoran.

Against Belmont (3-6-3), it was more of the same. The Panthers were outnumbered in almost every category except saves.

Eastern was outshot 10-4; seven shots were on goal for the Bruins, while only two came from the Panthers.

The shots came from redshirt junior Emma Scaro and junior forward Chloe Gottschalk.

The other two shots came from freshman defender Henar Urteaga and sophomore defender Brooke Greiner. Teteak finished with six saves.

Senior goalkeeper for the Bruins Stephanie Bukovec recorded her third shutout on the season, which moved her up into fifth place on the Bruins list for shutouts; it was the seventh in her career.

Morehead State (3-8-2) is coming off of a tie against OVC opponent Tennessee Tech (6-4-2) that ended in a 1-1 score. Before that, the Golden Eagles had six straight losses.

In that match, sophomore midfielder Cara Maher scored the goal off of a through ball that came from senior defender Angela Black.

Leading the charge for the Eagles’ offense is freshman forward Ashley Ritchie, who has four goals on the season.

Freshman goalkeeper Eva Yr Helgadottir has started nine games and has given up 18 goals on the year, but she has saved 53 for a save percentage of .746.

The Panthers will head to Morehead State Sunday and will play at noon.
