ANN ARBOR, Mich. - LMU's undefeated streak came to an end on Friday night as the Lions fell to the University of Michigan 1-0 at the U-M Soccer Field. Michigan scored the game-winner in the 40th minute and the Lions could not equalize. The Lions (3-1-2) look to rebound when they play Oakland on Sunday afternoon.
Michigan scored its game-winner at 39:41. Melissa Dobbyn raced down the right flank and sent a long feed toward the goal that Joslyn Slovek could not handle. The rebound came out to Katie Bohard, who had substituted into the game in the previous minute, and the junior placed a shot into the open net for her first career tally to put the Wolverines up 1-0.
The Wolverines produced the first scoring chance of the second stanza in the 59th minute. Banco flicked a through ball to a streaking Danelle Underwood, who took three touches and from 12 yards out fired a shot that was blocked by the LMU defense.
Jamie Artsis nearly added to the lead with 17 minutes remaining. Dobbyn sent a cross from the right side to Artsis on the back post inches from the goal line, but her deflection fell right into Slovek's arms.
LMU stepped up the pressure in the back half of the second period, forcing Michigan to take fouls and defend counterattacks. The Lions' best opportunity came on a restart kick from beyond the 18-yard box that sailed just over the crossbar in the waning minutes.
The Lions look to rebound when they face Oakland on Sunday afternoon.
