Appalachian State University women's soccer suffered a 4-1 decision to ETSU in a road exhibition contest on Wednesday evening at Summers-Taylor Stadium.
The weather played a factor delaying the contest to 7 p.m. before the Mountaineers and Buccaneers played three 30-minute periods.
Freshman Kirsten Seeley (Manassas, Va./Forest Park), who was in her first contest against another collegiate program, highlighted the evening for the Mountaineers as she came off the bench to give the Apps their only score of the contest in the 55th minute of the match. Mary Perkins (Huntersville, N.C./Cox Park) collected the assist on Seeley's score. Four other student-athletes collected a shot on goal. Emmily Cowie (Davidson, N.C./W.A. Hough) and Ava Dawson (Greenville, N.C./DH Conley) fired off attempts at the net while Amber Anderson (Indian Trail, N.C./Sun Valley) and Lindsey Poff (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Catholic) each registered a SOG.
Playing the full 90 minutes for App were Alexa Asher (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook) and Jessica Easley (Waxhaw, N.C./Marvin Ridge). All three goalkeepers saw time between the posts with Taylor Ray (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge) playing 39:50 of the match. Lauren Burke (Mableton, Ga./Whitefield Academy) played 30 minutes and stopped three shots while Lilly Dunn (Cary, N.C./Green Hope) followed suit with 20:10 of action.
Both teams got off their number of shots with a combined 31 attempts and 12 on goal. ETSU scored three of its first four goals in the first and second periods before tacking on a score in the final frame. Eleonora Goldoni, who was named to the Italian Senior National team, scored twice for the hosts to lead the offense.
App State will return to action on Friday at 7 p.m. against Western Carolina at Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex.
