Potsdam holds off Clarkson 2-1

POTSDAM, N.Y.-  The SUNY Potsdam women's soccer team (7-1) took down cross-town rival Clarkson University (4-3) 2-1 on Tuesday night at Hantz Turf Field. The victory marks the first win over the Golden Knights since October 29, 2009.  The Bears tied the score after a Clarkson own goal before senior captain Kaylen Van Wagner (Red Hook, N.Y./Hotchkiss) scored the go-ahead goal for Potsdam.

 

The Golden Knights got on the board first with a goal at 37:52 in the first half. Camryn Careccia passed to Lauren Flynn, who took the shot from 35 yards out that landed in the top left corner. Less than three minutes later, Potsdam got a gift from Clarkson as they knocked the ball into their own net to tie the match at one apiece. This added momentum to the Bears' offense when Potsdam received a free kick after a Golden Knight foul at 41:51. Van Wagner took the kick and sent it past Clarkson goalie Nicole Zlotnick for the eventual game winner. Clarkson held the advantage 6-4 in shots for the half, but the Bears took the lead into halftime.

 

The Golden Knights' picked up the pressure over the next 45 minutes and kept the Bears pushed back in their own zone for most of the half. At 66:01, Clarkson's offense almost tied the game when they were awarded a corner kick. Paige Spittler sent the ball into the box, where Courtney Black headed the ball toward the Bear goal, but senior goalie Bri Thibeau (Salem, N.Y./Salem) made the save to kept Potsdam on top. The Bear defenders and Thibeau held off the Clarkson's offensive attack the rest of the half to take the 2-1 victory.

 

Thibeau finished with three saves, while Zlotnick matched it.

 

The Golden Knights outshot the Bears 15-6 and held the edge in corner kicks 6-2.

 

The Bears are back in action this weekend when they head to SUNY Plattsburgh to open SUNYAC play at 1 p.m.
