Crusaders denied first winning streak of the season

The Crusaders fell to Penn State-Altoona 1-0 after receiving their first win of the season against Penn State-Harrisburg just days before.
Senior goalkeeper Rachel Norbuts made three saves, but couldn't help the Crusaders to change their record of 1-6.
A header in the 20th minute by Penn State-Altoona senior forward Allysia Ketchem was the only goal of the game.
The Crusaders nearly opened the game with a goal as a shot off of the foot of junior forward Samantha Zuponcic almost found the back of the net, but the ball ricocheted off of the crossbar.
The crossbar on both sides of the field did not go the Crusaders' way as Ketchem's goal was scored after she headed a ball into the goal that had hit the crossbar.
Penn State-Altoona outshot Susquehanna 5-3, in which the first and only goal was scored. Zuponcic, junior midfielder Kate Wiley, senior midfielder Hannah Jones and freshman midfielder Theresa Ellis led the team to many attempts on goal, however all were unsuccessful.
"We have a tight-knit defense. As a starting outside defender, there was a lack of communication at play, and we will continue to work on it," sophomore defender Caitlyn Cameron said. "We are a team with very high potential."
Cameron continued, "The rest of the season and the next game will be focused on channeling that potential and turning it into wins by making good passes, making good runs, keeping up the communication and winning the balls in the air,"
The Crusaders will host the Moravian Greyhounds Saturday, Sept. 28.
The game will begin on the Sassafras fields at 1 p.m.
