Event: Soccer - Hollins at St. Elizabeth (Morristown, NJ)

The lead: The Hollins soccer team boarded a bus to head north in advance of any potential bad weather from Hurricane Florence. The first stop on a weekend road trip was in New Jersey to face The College of St. Elizabeth on Friday evening.

The result: St. Elizabeth 1-0

How it happened: Neither team got much going during the first half. Only one shot was on target for either team, however, that one shot found the back of the Hollins net with just over five minutes left before the break. The second half would see each team attempt six shots but none would beat the respective keepers and Hollins fell, 1-0.

Hollins notes: 

College of St. Elizabeth notes:

  • Carissa Kirkland scored the game's lone goal before receiving a pair of yellow cards in the second half. It was Kirkland's second game winning goal of the season
  • Taylor Veve had the game's lone assist 
  • Keturah Cohen earned her second win of the season and registered two saves

What's next: Hollins will spend Saturday in New York City before heading to Brooklyn for a game with York College on Sunday morning.
