The Roanoke College women's soccer team fell in the final six minutes of its season opener to Fredonia State University, 1-0 on Friday, August 31st.
This game was the first ever meeting between the two teams and the opening game of the 2012 Roanoke College Soccer Invitational. The Maroons move to a record of 0-1 while the Blue Devils rise to 1-0 in their overall standings.
Both teams held each other scoreless through the first 84 minutes, but with six minutes to play, the Blue Devils struck. Fredonia's Maggie Horan served a ball to the middle of the box, where Reilly Condidorio slipped one past the right side of the keeper for the 1-0 lead. The advantage would stand for the next six minutes, and Fredonia took the first game of the Roanoke Invitational.
The Maroons outshot the Blue Devils 14-7, 10-3 in the second half. Roanoke also led in corner kicks by a margin of 5-1.
