The Piedmont College women’s soccer team defeated the Hawks of Huntingdon College with a final score of 3-1 on Sat., Oct. 3 at the Walker Athletic Complex. 

Third-year midfielder Morgan Edelman said, “Playing in the rain was tough, but we worked through it and got the win to stay undefeated.”

The Lady Lions had a roaring start when third-year forward Megan Hatfield scored the first goal with a penalty kick, counting as her sixth goal of the season. 

Fourth-year goalie Michaela Gardner played strong defense, allowing only one goal by the Hawks in the first half. Gardner made seven saves.

Both teams were tied for a short time, but Hatfield soon scored another goal with an assist from second-year midfielder Cecilia Davis, putting Piedmont ahead once again. 

With the momentum going strong, first-year midfielder Jazmin Penado scored Piedmont’s third goal, assisted by Hatfield. 

The Lions’ defense continued to push through the second half, and first-year goalkeeper Ashlyn Atnip continued Gardner’s efforts, not allowing any goals to be scored by Huntingdon. 

No goals by either team were made in the second half of the game, leaving Piedmont with the victory, which continues the Lady Lions’ undefeated season. 

Third-year defender Marissa Akin said, “It was a hard battle with the rain. The game turned around, and we won. It was another good win for our team.”

Piedmont won 3-1. Their overall record is now 11-0, and their conference record is now 6-0. 

The Lady Lions’ next game will be on Tues., Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. against Toccoa Falls College at the Walker Athletic Complex.
