Storm drop tight contest to Concordia Chicago

INDIANOLA, Iowa - The Simpson women's soccer team matched Concordia Chicago stride for stride, but the result wasn't a favorable one.

Sydney Fuller scored in the 24th minute, the only goal of the game, and the Storm lost to Concordia 1-0 Sunday afternoon despite putting twice as many shots on frame.

The Storm (3-10) outshot Concordia 11-10 and held a 6-3 edge in shots on goal. Mackenzie Stump put three of her five shots on goal to lead Simpson.

Fuller scored when she collected a loose ball in the box off a corner kick, giving the Cougars (5-8) their third straight win.

One of Simpson's best opportunities came in the closing minutes, when Concordia goalkeeper Ally Krajnak vacated the net to make a play on a cross. Simpson wasn't able to get a clean foot on the loose ball, though.

Zoe Seiler made two saves and Ally Krajnak had six for the Cougars. 

Simpson goes to Central on Wednesday, Oct. 14. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
