Laurinburg, NC- The St. Andrews University women's soccer team fell 4-1 to Shorter University on Monday afternoon in the finale of SAU's midseason homestand.

Shorter came out firing shots on the Knights throughout the first half but could not get any on goal. However, SAU took one shot later on and made it count as freshman Anna Werneth (Breisach, Germany) put the Knights on the board first with a monster goal from about right outside the circle in the 23rd minute to give SAU the 1-0 lead.

Unfortunately, Shorter came right back with a goal by Aline Tamiosso in the 33rd minute to knot the game at 1 at the half. Shorter then added another just 4 minutes into the 2nd half by Helene Farinha to take the lead. Farinha would add another in the 65th minute before Kelli Davis finished out the scoring in the 81st minute.

Shorter was able to keep the pressure on the Knights throughout most of the game en route to a 24-9 shot advantage. However, SAU sophomore goalkeeper Brittany Roberts did alright in making 14 saves on the day.

Werneth led with 4 shots on the day while senior Gemma Dugo had 3.

Shorter improves to 2-4 with the win while SAU falls to 3-5.

St. Andrews will be back out on the road on Saturday as they travel to Georgia to face conference foe Truett-McConnell College (5-5, 3-2) at 12 pm.
