GREENWOOD – The Lander women's soccer team dropped its road opener to Limestone on Wednesday evening, 1-0, at Saints Field in Gaffney, S.C.
The Bearcats move to 2-2-0 on the year while the Saints improve to 2-2-0 in the 2019 season.
Kaitlyn Kilbert's goal in the 75th minute off of an Abbie Iddenden assist was the difference. Until the goal, the possession was fairly even between the squads, but after Limestone took the narrow advantage, the Bearcats struggled to find the equalizer the remainder of the match.
The Saints outshot the Bearcats 12-9, while they won five corners compared to the Bearcats one.
Lander returns to action next Wednesday as they travel to Anderson in a 7 p.m. contest.
