Lady Chargers soccer eliminated from postseason hopes

Taking the field with a postseason berth on the line, the Alabama-Huntsville (7-7-0, 3-3-0 GSC) women's soccer team failed to get on the scoreboard and were blanked 1-0 on Wednesday night by Gulf South Conference foe Christian Brothers (10-4-0, 2-2-0 GSC) in Memphis.

The Lady Chargers entered the contest needing a win to possibly make the GSC Tournament hosted Nov. 5-7 but UAH's loss eliminates the squad from contention for the four-team event.

Despite holding a 6-1 shot advantage in the opening half, UAH could not get on the scoreboard.  CBU came out hard in the second half and put five shots on net in the first five minutes of the half.

Among those scoring attempts was a shot by Allison Tutt at 59:51 that found the back of the net and proved to be the difference for CBU.  The Lady Chargers managed a huge break less than a minute later as CBU went down a player after a Lady Buccaneer was ejected for her second yellow card but UAH could not cash in on the man advantage.

UAH sophomore Lauren Kelly (Huntsville) took the loss in net for the Chargers making six stops on the night while Libby Hake picked up the shutout with a five-save effort.

The Lady Chargers head to Georgia Southwestern on Saturday for the final road trip of 2010.  UAH wraps up the season on Monday hosting Shorter at Charger Field at Noon for "Senior Day."
