AU women fall, 2-1

CLINTON – Playing at home for the first time in three weeks didn’t turn out so well for the Ashford women’s soccer team. The 18th-ranked Saints opened a three-game homestand with a 2-1 loss to Judson University on Saturday.

The Eagles (4-1-1) broke the 1-1 tie in the 81st minute. On a race for a loose ball, Judson’s Jenna Steffansen held off an Ashford defender and beat goalkeeper Jessica VanDyke on an uncontested breakaway to net for the winner.

The Saints (4-2) pressed late but couldn’t find a way past goalkeeper Sara Hoffman before the final horn.

AU jumped on the board first, when sophomore Ali Tamburro netted her third goal of the year. The sophomore from Pickering, Ontario, took a feed from freshman Hannah Scheid and fired it past Hoffman in the 27th minute.

Late in the first half, Scheid had a pair of chances to add an insurance marker but was turned aside by Hoffman each time.

Judson evened things up in the 65th minute when Angela Bianchi got hold of a loose ball and beat VanDyke.

“It’s a tough pill to swallow,” AU coach Mick Regan said. “It was a hard-fought, well-played game that could have gone either way. We know we have to put this one behind us and get ready for our next game.”

VanDyke finished with six saves, while Hoffman turned aside five. Ashford held the advantage in both shots (13-12) and corner kicks (3-1).

The Saints look to bounce back at 7 p.m. Wednesday, when they host Trinity International .
