Lake Erie College (2-8, 0-8 GLIAC) played tough but it was not enough in a 1-0 loss to Michigan Tech (5-5, 3-5 GLIAC) in a home match at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium in Painesville, Ohio.
The first half was played mainly between the 20-yard lines as only three shots were put on goal between the teams in the half (MTU: 2, LEC: 1). It appeared as though the game was going to go into half scoreless, but with less than two minutes remaining, freshman goalie Megan Baldacci mishandled a cross and it led to an easy goal for Michigan Tech's Melanie Hoffman.
The second half was much of the same as Michigan Tech put three shots on goal in the half while the Storm did not have any attempts.
Baldacci made four saves for the Storm in the loss.
Michigan Tech won the battle of shots, 18-7, and corner kicks, 4-2, but there were few good scoring opportunities for either side.
Lake Erie is in action next on Wednesday, Oct. 6 when it hosts Urbana in a non-conference matchup beginning at 4:00 p.m.
