Giesen Honored On Senior Day As Storm Fall To Northwood

PAINESVILLE, OHIO – Lake Erie College (1-13-1, 0-11 GLIAC) honored its lone senior, forward Chelsea Giesen (Grants Pass, Ore./North Valley), but was unable to send her out on top in the home finale as it lost, 2-0, to Northwood University (5-8, 4-8 GLIAC) at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium.

It was an evenly played game, as both teams put eight shots on goal with Northwood holding the 17-11 overall shot advantage.  Each team attempted four corner kicks. 

Northwood scored in the 13th minute as Tonya Sitney scored on a corner kick from Mallory McCarthy.  Lake Erie tried to respond quickly with a barrage of shots including a pair of header which were stopped by team saves.  Giesen in particular got two nice chances which were both stopped. 

While Lake Erie held a 9-6 advantage in shots for the half, the Timberwolves got their second goal at 40:05 as Amanda Watson weaved through the Storm defense and stuck a strong boot from 15-yards out. 

The Storm tired as they tried to mount a comeback through a heavy rain.  Northwood held a 11-2 advantage in shots for the second half. 

Lake Erie has three more contests left on the season, all GLIAC road matches.
