Lady Nighthawks cage No. 2 Columbus State

By AccessWDUN

COLUMBUS — Behind a three-goal team performance and a four-save effort by Hannah Goudy, the North Georgia women's soccer team upset the No. 2 Columbus State Cougars, 3-2, Wednesday night at CSU's Walden Soccer Complex.

The Lady Nighthawks improve to 4-1-2 and 2-0-0 in Peach Belt Conference play.

The scoring started early for both teams. Renee VanHorn headed home a goal just over 90 seconds into the match, but the Cougars answered with a goal in the fifth minute to tie the match, 1-1.

North Georgia retook the lead in the 29th minute when VanHorn found Taylor Malasek for a left-footed shot that went inside the post. The Nighthawks doubled their lead in the 62nd minute as Rosie Embley put home a shot from 25 yards out to put UNG up, 3-1.

The Cougars pushed forward and found a goal in the 89th minute, but Goudy and the back line for UNG stood strong late to preserve the win.

NOTES
- North Georgia snaps a eight-match losing streak to the Cougars with the win. The win also breaks CSU's streak of consecutive unbeaten matches at the Walden Soccer Complex that dated back to the last time UNG beat the Cougars in 2013.

- The win serves as the UNG's first over a ranked opponent since 2014 when the Nighthawks defeated No. 17 Clayton State on October 15, 2014, by a score of 5-0 in Dahlonega.

- UNG took just 10 shots, but eight of those shots were on goal.
