A bit of bad luck bit the Huntington University women's soccer team as it lost 2-1 to visiting Madonna University on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

The Foresters, 1-3, had a Rachel TerMarsch shot hit the bottom of the goal crossbar and bounce straight down, rather than in, for what would have been the game-tying goal in the second half, and instead never got the equalizer.

Both teams did all their scoring in the first half, with TerMarsch tying the contest at 1-1 at the 22:39 mark on a crossing pass form Sam Cubic.

Just over 10 minutes later, Madonna took advantage of a penalty kick to score the eventual game-winner.

Madonna opened the scoring with a goal in the game's opening minutes.

Megan Soltow gave up both Madonna goals and had one save in 49 minutes in the net, and Caitlin Adams had four saves without yielding a score in 40 minutes of play.
