Stucky's First Career Goal Leads Bulldogs by Indiana State, 1-0

Sept. 5, 2004

Sophomore Marcie Stucky's goal ten minutes into Sunday's match held up as the Bulldogs dropped Indiana State, 1-0. The goal was Stucky's first of her college career. The Bulldogs had a season-high 32 shots in the contest and improve to 2-2 on the season. Sunday's loss was the first blemish on the Sycamores' record, as ISU falls to 2-1. Stucky collected a loose ball in front of the net and scored at the 9:55 mark off a corner kick from sophomore Caitlin Gill. The Bulldogs applied pressure throughout the match, but couldn't capitalize on any other opportunities. Junior Meredith Buemi led the home team with seven shots, while Gill and senior Rachel Pivarnik each took five shots on the afternoon. "We know we're going to be in a lot of one-goal matches this year and this was another one," said coach Woody Sherwood. "This is a great result, but the team knows we can't miss those four or five great chances and expect to win in the future. We have a week to prepare for a good Kent State team and I'm looking forward to a week of conditioning." Freshman Annalise Larkin (1-1) picked up the first win of her collegiate career, making two saves in 67 minutes of play. Sophomore Megan Cappa relieved her and made three stops down the stretch. Rachel Rudzis (2-1) took the loss for the Sycamores, making six saves. The Bulldogs host Kent State Sunday, Sept. 12 at Varsity Field. The match kicks off at 1 p.m.
