CHICAGO, IL - The
Scarlet Hawks lost 1-3 to Robert
on October 27th. The game was played at the Hawk's home field in
Chicago, IL. Erica Delgado, Mary McCabe, and Allison Peirce were recognized for
senior night before the game and played their hearts out.
The weather was
cold, and rain fell relentlessly throughout the game. The field conditions were
poor, and many players were slipping and sliding. The game began a little
unorganized as the players were adjusting to the conditions. The ball was
constantly in the air and out of bounds. Both teams began to connect more
passes and get more opportunities in front of goal as the first half went on.
After 45 minutes of play, the game was scoreless.
Ilana Milkez scored within the first 6 minutes of the second half to leave the
Hawks down 0-1. The Hawks continued to play tough and created a few great
chances on the opponent's goal. However, RMU's Gifty Applah scored in the 73rd
minute of the game to make it 0-2. The
Hawks rebounded with a great goal by freshman, Jessica Roberts. Senior, Erica
Delgado gained control of the ball on the left side of the pitch and served a
beautiful ball right outside of the six. Senior, Mary McCabe got on the end of
the cross with a spectacular bike that nearly made it into the back of the net.
The goalie blocked McCabe's shot and fumbled the ball inside the six. Roberts
made a smart follow up and slotted the ball right passed the goalie. The goal
gave IIT momentum, but a controversial call by the ref gave RMU a PK inside the
box. Robert Morris' Anne Meshes put the PK away, and the score remained 1-3
until the final whistle.
Great game to
IIT seniors Erica Delgado, Mary McCabe, and Allison Pierce. Good Luck and the team will miss you next
