Knights lose first game of season

The Gannon University women’s soccer team has given up their first goals of season, and suffered its first loss as a result.

After 459 minutes and 31 seconds without giving up a goal, Gannon’s vaunte defense finally showed it wasn’t perfect.  East Stroudsburg University scored three goals en route to a 3-2 win against the Atlantic Region’s fourth-ranked Knights Saturday.

Kaitlyn Kissell, of Erie, scored her third goal of the season and cut the deficit in half with 2:03 left in the first half.  Then, with roughly 60 minutes of regulation left, another Erie native, Sammy Valloud, scored to bring the Knights within one goal.

But the rally came too little too late.  The Knights dropped to 5-1 overall and 2-1 in conference play.

The Knights will resume action 7 p.m. Wednesday when it hosts Edinboro University at Gannon University Field
