Rally falls short for Army women in loss to Rutgers

WEST POINT - Seniors Kimberly An and Joey Molacek scored within a 12-minute span late in the game to draw Army to 3-2 after falling behind 3-0, but the Black Knights’ comeback fell short in a 3-2 loss to Rutgers in a non-conference women’s soccer match Sunday afternoon at Clinton Field.

Junior Sara Corson had a hand in all three goals for the Scarlet Knights, tallying the opening and closing goal and assisting on the other in staking Rutgers to a 3-0 lead. Following a defensive first half, Corson scored off a free kick just before halftime to head into the locker room with a 1-0 lead.

Rutgers scored twice in a seven-minute span to start the second half. Jonelle Filigno tallied just over two minutes in off an assist by Corson, who followed with her second goal for a 3-0 lead. Army kept Rutgers in check over the time remaining with freshman goalkeeper Jordan Cassalia stopping five straight shots, including back-to-back saves within a six-second span on attempts by Maria Gerew.

Just over two minutes later, An put the Black Knights on the scoreboard when she booted a 22-yard free kick into the left corner of the Rutgers net against back-up keeper Alan Jimenez to draw Army to 3-1. At the 85:35 mark, Army was awarded a penalty kick when Candace Stewart was brought down in the box. The nod to take the shot was given to Molacek, who converted as the Black Knights drew to 3-2.

Following the goal, Rutgers immediately returned starting keeper Jessica Janosz to the net. Neither team was able to get off a shot over the time remaining as the Scarlet Knights won their inaugural game with Army.
