The Fighting Scots women’s soccer team added another loss to their PSAC record on Friday after they faced Indiana University of Pennsylvania. 

The match took place at South Campus Field in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and with 100 people in attendance the Crimson Hawks took the 4-1 win.

IUP registered their first goal rather quickly in the first half (1:47). The goal was scored by junior midfielder Gianna Parlavecchio and she was assisted by goalkeeper Makenzie Witzel. 

There was a lot of game played in between the first and second goals, including seven shots from Edinboro and four shots from the Crimson Hawks. Just before the end of the first half (36:55), IUP scored another goal, bringing it to 2-0 before going into halftime. Kallie Conte scored this goal and the junior forward of IUP was assisted by Brandie Bryant, a senior midfielder on the team.

The second half got off to a quick start just as the first half did. Before the first goal, there were two fouls called on Edinboro and one offsides call on IUP. Not long after that (50:05 into the game), the Crimson Hawks’ defender Hannah Stoof scored IUP’s third goal of the game, which brought the score to 3-0. After each team had one shot and one foul, Edinboro’s Ashley Mutkus scored the first and only goal for the team in this game (54:35). Throughout the next 15 minutes of the game Edinboro had one shot and one foul and IUP had two fouls and one shot. Towards the middle of the second half of the game (78:31), the Crimson Hawks scored their fourth goal of the game. This goal was scored by senior forward Lexie Palluconi and was assisted by Kallie Conte. This goal brought the score to 4-1, which would be the score at the end of the game.

Although the Fighting Scots took a loss for this game, they returned to Sox Harrison Stadium for a win on Sunday against Mansfield University. For more coverage of the match against Mansfield, head to B3 for a recap.
