Second-Half Goal Propels Air Force Women's Soccer Past Weber State, 1-0
Sept. 9, 2011
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Sophomore Megan Dozier's goal in the 71st minute lifted Air Force women's soccer to a 1-0 win over Weber State Friday night at the Cadet Soccer Stadium. At 4-2, the Falcons are off to their best start since the 2003 season.
After a see-saw battle throughout most of the match, the Falcon found a way to capitalize on an opportunity. On a ball sent into the box down the right side, Dozier was able to get to the ball after it deflected off Weber State goalkeeper Ryann Waldman. Dozier then punched the ball in from five yards out for the score.
It was a bittersweet goal for the hometown Colorado Springs-native, who had just returned to practice last week after recovering from a knee injury suffered last season.
Weber State (1-4) held the advantage on shots, 14-8, and shots on goal 6-3. Felicia Sortor led the Wildcats with three shots. Waldman had three saves on the day.
Air Force returns to action next Sunday, Sept. 11 hosting Cleveland State.
