Women's Soccer: Knights Beat Cougars 4-1, Win Third Straight

ROSEDALE, Md. -- The Knights defeated the Cougars of Frederick Community College 4-1 last night at CCBC Essex Stadium in come-from-behind fashion for its third consecutive victory. 

Frederick freshman forward Asia Owen scored 6:22 into the contest to give the Cougars an early 1-0 lead.

"That first goal [the defense] played the ball back to goalie Hannah [Burrows] and she did not know it was coming," said Knights' sophomore defender, and tri-captain, Ashley Hallameyer (Eastern Technical). "After that, we talked a lot more on defense and got wider." 

Burrows, a sophomore netminder and converted defensive player, finished the game with seven saves.

Knights' head coach Geoffrey Holland made a change toward the end of the first half and moved sophomore Alexis Regalbuto (Perry Hall) from her defense position to midfield.

The adjustment paid off in the 38th minute of play when Regalbuto scored on a cross from Sarah Brantley (Eastern Technical) to tie the game at one.

Just over 15 minutes into the second half, sophomore tri-captain Rachel Rossi (Havre de Grace) scored unassisted to give the Knights (3-2) its first lead of the game.

Freshman midfielder Alyson Greenstein (Eastern Technical) scored at 66:31 with an assist from Brooke Rosenberger (Perry Hall) to put the Knights up 3-1.

"I think we finally got it," Greenstein said of her team's play. "We started off with some tough games [against Lewis and Clark and Community College of Rhode Island], but I think last weekend helped our confidence and helped get our rhythm down."

The weekend Greenstein spoke of was Sept. 3-4 and saw the Knights defeat Mercyhurst North East (3-1) and Niagara County Community College (10-0) on the road for its first two wins of the season. 

Greenstein tallied four goals and four assists on the trip. 

Sophomore midfielder Jenna Vogan (Patapsco) capped the scoring at 86:58, which was assisted by sophomore tri-captain Emily DiMatteo (Eastern Technical). 

"When we play together, we play very well," Holland said. "

The Knights will continue its home stand tomorrow as it hosts Anne Arundel Community College. Game time is 4:30 p.m.
