SU Women's Soccer Advances With Tournament Win

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The stakes were high Saturday afternoon in the first round of post-season play for Salisbury's women's soccer team. They fought to keep the season, and their tournament dreams, alive against Frostburg State University.

Salisbury hosted the fifth ranked team in the first round of the Capital Athletic Conference playoffs in a rematch from just about two weeks ago.

That game was a draw - the teams left the field in a tie after double overtime. But Saturday, the ladies were determined to settle the score.

"It was a time for redemption," said midfielder Christine Clark. "It was a time to rise to the occasion."

This meeting seemed like a bit of deja vu: it was tied one apiece at the end of regulation. After another pair of double overtimes,  it was time for a shoot-out that was all too familiar.

"A year ago almost to the day we played Frostburg here in the finals, and we lost on penalty kicks," Clark said.

The crowd stood by as kick after kick sailed into the net. Emotions were high as both Salisbury's Marissa Walker and Frostburg's Stephanie Fazenbake missed penalty kicks in the fifth round.

"We knew it was our game and we weren't going to give it away," said Goal Keeper Michelle Conrad.

One more goal by Clark set up what would be the final shot in the sudden death round.

"My girl Christine put one away and I said 'this one's mine, let's end this now,'" Conrad said.

The next shot from Frostburg's Nicole Gernert came low and to the left, but Conrad was there. A diving deflection gave the team the win, and sends them to the semifinals.

"We knew that Michelle would step up for us," Coach Kwame Lloyd said. "We had chances today to really come out confident. The kids shined."

Up next: top-ranked Christopher Newport University on Wednesday, a match with a familiar theme.

"I think this team is looking for an opportunity to have some redemption," Lloyd said. "And we're playing very well right now so I'm excited for us."

The winner of Wednesday's game will play in the championship next Saturday.
