SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Kristin Bos scored her second goal of the season, but the Lamar University women’s soccer team came up short in a 3-1 loss to Eastern Michigan on the final day of the UTSA Classic on Sunday.
Bos scored on a breakaway off a pass from Kimmy Albeno with 24:35 remaining in the game to spoil the shutout bid of Eastern Michigan’s Jenna O’Dell, but Lamar (1-4) could draw no closer.
Eastern Michigan (2-2-1) built a 2-0 lead in the first half as Cara Cutaia and Bianci Rossi scored against Lamar starter Elizabeth Silas. Sarah Deakin gave the Eagles a 3-0 lead in the second half before Bos notched her goal just 65 seconds later. Bos had team highs of four shots and three shots on goal.
Bailey Fontenot turned in a solid effort in goal in the second half, allowing one goal while making four saves. O’Dell finished with six saves for Eastern Michigan.
