Cavs Come Up Short At Charleston

(CHARLESTON, W.Va.) – Emma Armour's seven points weren't enough as Walsh lost a heartbreaker to Charleston at Schoenbaum Stadium by a score of 11-10 in the Mountain State on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. The Cavaliers (0-2) led 9-7 late before the Golden Eagles (2-2) rallied for four consecutive goals en route to the win.

Armour's fourth goal put the Maroon and Gold within one, and even though Charleston won the ensuing draw, the Cavs were able to force a turnover and had the chance to tie with an extra-player opportunity after a check to the head by Charleston.

Amanda Hodel found herself with possession in the final seconds, but a shot went just wide.

The game was close throughout the entire game as neither team held a lead of more than two goals. Both teams exchanged the first nine goals with the Cavs eventually getting their two-goal lead on Armour's fourth of the game to make it 6-4 with 2:39 to go in the first half.

Armour's attack opened up other players as well and resulted in assists on goals by Becky Parker, Amanda Hodel, and Sarah McCormick in the second half.

Despite the loss, Mikaela Faus was spectacular in goal as she made 15 saves on 33 shots faced. It's the fourth time in her career she has recorded 15 or more saves in a game.

The Cavs will return home to start a three-game home stand next Wednesday when they host Notre Dame in a non-conference clash. Opening draw is scheduled for 5 p.m.
