HATTIESBURG, MS - (Fri 22 Sep 2017) - The No. 10-ranked Lindsey Wilson women's soccer team suffered a 3-2 setback at the hands of No. 6-ranked William Carey (MS) on Friday night at Crusader Field, .

The Blue Raiders (2-3-3) and Crusaders (7-0-0) were tied after the first 45 minutes of play, but a red card for Lindsey Wilson less than a minute into the second half saw the Blue Raiders go down to 10 players, eventually conceding twice in the second half while only scoring one more goal of their own.

Both teams were active early on the shot chart with a pair of shots each in the opening eight minutes, including an attempt by Veronica Kurtz that went off the crossbar.

William Carey was first to dent the scoreboard in the 25th minute when Naomie Guerra slotted home to put the Crusaders ahead 1-0. William Carey continued to pepper the Blue Raider goal, tallying 10 shots in the first half, but they were unable to double their lead. Lindsey Wilson managed five shots in the first half, including just one from the 18th minute on, but the last shot was the equalizer as Emma Gustafsson scored her first goal of the year to tie the match at 1-1 in the 41st minute.

Just 55 seconds into the second half, the Blue Raiders got into a mess of trouble.

Starting goalkeeper Jovana Ivanovic was hit with a straight red after handling the ball outside of the 18-yard box as the last defender on the play, forcing LWC down to 10 players. William Carey's Savanah Carter then curled the ensuing free kick around the Blue Raider wall and into the back of the net to put the Crusaders back out front.

Just a few minutes later, William Carey made it a two-goal lead after Therese Nolin scored in the 51st minute to make it 3-1. Relief goalkeeper Eveljn Frigotto continued to face a barrage of Crusader shots from there, but she turned away the remaining attempts, eventually finishing with six saves in just her second collegiate appearance.

Lindsey Wilson managed just two shots the entire second half, but one of those came when Shelby Austin knocked in her first goal of the year in the 80th minute to give the Blue Raiders a spark of life. But the Crusader defense held strong the final 10 minutes and kept LWC from getting a shot off the remainder of the game as William Carey remained unbeaten on the year.

William Carey outshot Lindsey Wilson 24-7 on the night, including a 15-6 advantage in shots on goal. The hosts also doubled up LWC in corner kicks 6-3.
