Cardinals improve to 3-2 on the season

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 13, 2006) - Catholic University women's soccer (3-2) hosted the Frostburg State Bobcats (1-3) Wednesday afternoon in its first home game of 2006.  With goals distributed between three different players, CUA was able to get the 3-2 win.

Senior Kate Rosenberg (Portland, Ore./Saint Mary's) found the back of the net at 15:35.  CUA took a corner kick which was disrupted by the Bobcat defense before the Cards could get a clean shot.  As the ball bounced her way, Rosenberg fired to make it 1-0. 

Frostburg came back to tie it up in the 23rd minute on Lauren Lentine's score from the right side.  The Bobcats played a physical game and a push in the box led to a CUA penalty kick at 30:12.  Midfielder Diana Napolitano (Hasbrouck Heights, N.J./Immaculate Heart) took the ball from close range and connected to go up 2-1.

FSU controlled the momentum to begin the second half.  After a number of good looks, Frostburg scored the equalizer at 59:04 shooting the rebound from CUA keeper Kim Stengle's (Old Bridge, N.J./Old Bridge) save.

With the clock winding down, another Cardinal attempt was blocked by the Bobcats.  This time, however, the rebound came to forward Suzie Peters (Nanuet, N.Y.) who was right on target to score the game winner.  

CUA was fired 24 shots for the game with Frostburg getting off nine.  Stengle had three saves and the Cards dominated corner kicks 6-1. 

CUA will return to its previous field for the game on Saturday.  The Cardinals will play CAC-foe, Salisbury, at 4:30 p.m. on the grass field.
