ROHNERT PARK, Calif. – Goalkeeper Nora Goodrie had an impressive day totaling a season-high 12 saves but it wasn’t enough as Humboldt State women’s soccer lost to No. 25 Sonoma State 2-0 Wednesday.  Goodrie stopped four shots on goal within the first 40 minutes before Sonoma State’s Alexis Espitia found an open goal during a scuffle in the box at 39:50. The Seawolves (3-0-2, 1-0 CCAA) closed the first period with another two shots on goal, but both were stopped by Goodrie. Unlike the Seawolves, HSU was unable to record a shot in the first half. “Today was a tale of two halves,” said HSU Head Coach Paul Karver. “Our response in the second half was very good, and tactically we asked questions that Sonoma couldn’t answer. Sonoma State closed the match with its second goal off a header from midfielder Sarah Lindborg. She was assisted on a corner kick from Madison Watts with less than two minutes to play. The Lumberjacks (2-2-1, 0-1 CCAA) rebounded in the second period with eight shots, two on goal, but weren’t able to find the back of the net. Sabine Postma had two shots for HSU, one on goal, and Mary Swisher had one shot on goal. Goodrie finished the half with six saves.  “The travel we have gone through has finally taken its toll,” said Karver. “It will be nice to be home and get some training in before San Francisco State.” HSU will host the Gators Sunday at 11:30 a.m. at College Creek Field. Print Friendly Version
