FAIRFAX, Va. – UMBC women's soccer's senior goalkeeper Jen Nance (Millersville, Md./Severna Park) registered a six-save effort, but a late first-half goal led Appalachian State to victory in the second game of the George Mason Tournament on Friday night at George Mason Stadium.
All five of the Retrievers' first five games have been decided by one goal or less, but UMBC drops to 1-3-1 on the season, while the Mountaineers improve to 3-1-0 on the year.
The Retrievers tallied a season-low seven shots on the night and did not record a shot off of their four corner kicks. Junior Destinee Morris (La Plata, Md./La Plata) tallied a team-best two shots in her first start of the season.
Appalachian State's Kat Greer netted one of her game-high four shots in the 40th minute, connecting on a long range shot that Nance got a touch on but was unable to make the stop on.
Mountaineer goalkeepers Megan Roberson and Sam Steyl combined for the five-save shutout.
UP NEXT FOR THE RETRIEVERS: UMBC closes out the George Mason Tournament on Sunday, Sept. 6 against UNC Wilmington. Game time is set for noon at George Mason Stadium.
