DURHAM, N.H. — Sophomore goalkeeper Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) registered a season-high nine saves, but a late goal was too much to overcome, as the University of New Hampshire women's soccer team fell to Brown University, 1-0, Thursday afternoon at Lewis Fields.
After a deadlocked first frame, Chloe Cross found the back of the net midway through the second stanza to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. Cross tracked down a ball on the right flank, beating her defender one-on-one and fired a shot from the top of the box that found its way into the left side of the net past a diving Correa at 83:53.
Brown outshot UNH 12-4, including a 9-2 edge in the first frame. Shots were nearly even in the second half, as the Brown Bears held a 3-2 edge over the Wildcats. Brown also held the advantage in corner kicks, 6-1.
Stephanie Gilkenson (Cranston, R.I.) led the Wildcats with three shots, including two on goal. Maddie Wiener led the visitors with three shots, posting two on goal attempts.
MC Barrett and Amber Bledsoe split time in net for Brown, both registering one save.
The Wildcats are back in action Sunday, Sept. 18 (1 p.m.) when they travel to Bryant University to take on the Bulldogs at Bulldog Stadium.
