USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - The Air Force women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 match at home to Northern Colorado Friday at the Cadet Soccer Stadium. The loss dropped the Falcons to 3-2 on the season, while the Bears improved to 1-3-1.
The lone score of the match came from Brittany Dunn in the 72nd minute. Dunn got to a ball near the left corner of the box, spun around and sent one in to the right side of the net.
Air Force had several chances on the night, but could never completely finish. The Falcons' biggest scoring chance came early in the second half, when Stephanie Patterson received a perfectly placed pass from Bridgett Murphy and got a one-on-one chance with UNC goalkeeper Kirsten Salmimen. Patterson was able to get the shot past Salmimen, but her shot missed just missed the left post.
Northern Colorado had 14 shots, eight one goal. Salmimen had four saves in the win.
Air Force returns to action next Friday, Sept. 9 hosting Weber State.
