Mustangs fall 3-0 to Arcadia in MACC semis

Emily Lord's volley to the goal was blocked at the line in the 11th minute.

The Knights got their revenge against the Stevenson women’s soccer team. Just a few weeks ago the Mustangs handed Arcadia their first loss of the season in a stunning 3-2 upset in Owings Mills, but this time in Glenside, Pa., the 16th-ranked team in the country poured it on Stevenson early for a 3-0 victory.

Arcadia scored in just 4 seconds after Jackie Glanfield sent a cross to Kayla Haberbosch, who finished to the right side. It was clear from there that the Knights were pumped for the game. Arcadia ripped off 24 shots in the game. Stevenson had 12, but only two on goal the entire 90 minutes and both were first half saves.

The Mustangs nearly responded in the 11th minute when Brittney Celano sent a corner kick into the box, but the volley by Emily Lord from inside the 18-yard box was blocked at the line by a Knights defender.

Stevenson gave up another goal in the 19th minute when Jess Kelly broke away from the defense. Her initial shot was stopped by Tiffany McKee, but Glanfield was there to tap the deflected ball into the goal.

With the way Arcadia was able to maintain possession, the 2-0 deficit was far too much for Stevenson to come back from, especially when the success continued in the second half for Arcadia.

The Knights scored another goal early in the second half. Kelly sent a through-ball up to Glanfield and in a one-on-one situation with McKee, she scored a second goal of the game in the 50th minute.

Stevenson was out-shot 24-12 end the Knights held a 5-4 corner kick advantage in the game.

With a third-place finish in the MACC and a victory over Arcadia when they were ranked sixth in the nation, the Mustangs still have a chance to be picked to the 2016 ECAC Division III Women’s Soccer Championship. The selection will be on Monday, November 7.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
