Lamar soccer team falls
TOMBALL, Texas – Kimmy Albeno became the all-time leading
scorer in Lamar history Sunday, but her efforts weren’t enough as the Cardinals
dropped a 2-1 decision in double overtime to Massachusetts in a non-conference
women’s soccer game at Tomball High School.
Albeno scored 7:39 into the first half to give Lamar a 1-0
lead and move her past Lisa Hance on Lamar’s all-time chart with 51 points.
Albeno added to the school record she already holds with her 22nd
Lamar (3-4) seemed poised to take the lead into halftime,
but UMass tied the game at 1 with just eight seconds remaining in the first
half when Daniela Alvarez beat LU goalkeeper Bailey Fontenot on a set play
after Lamar was whistled for a questionable foul.
Fontenot had a strong game for Lamar, finishing with 10
saves as UMass (2-4-1) outshot the Cardinals 31-6 for the game.
The Minutewomen got the winner with 5:31 remaining in the
second overtime when Sara Pandolfi chipped one over Fontenot’s head. Fontenot
collided with Pandolfi as she came out to get the ball.
Danielle Kriscenski made four saves for UMass.
Lamar returns to action at 7 p.m. Friday when it opens
Southland Conference play at Northwestern State before hosting Oral Roberts in
a conference game at 1 p.m. Sunday.
“We have to bounce back,” Lamar coach Orlando Cervantes
said. “We have to be ready for conference play.”
