Youngstown, Ohio -- Sophomore Cara Armstrong scored her third goal of the season from an assist from freshman Shay Sade, but the Youngstown State women's soccer team dropped its third straight match after falling to Northern Kentucky, 2-1, on Sunday afternoon.
The Guins fall to 4-3 while Northern Kentucky improves to 3-5.
After the Norse took a 1-0 lead just 11 minutes into the match, Armstrong knotted the game when a shot by Chelsey Haney, who had six shots, rebounded to Sade and then glanced off Armstrong's head and into the back of the goal at the 23:14 mark.
NKU's Sarah Smith scored the game-winner at the 72 minute mark after Martha Staab's pass found a crease in the Penguins's defense and slipped a shot past Ali Viola.
The Guins took 22 shots and nine shots on goal compared to just six total shots and two shots on goal for the Norse.
The Guins visit Butler, Saturday, Sept. 22, at 5 p.m. in Indianapolis, Ind.
