YORK - The Spires from the University of Saint Mary scored two goals in the first eight minutes to beat York 3-2. Megan McMillen scored two goals in the game, including the game winner in the 56th minute from 35 yards out that sailed over goalkeeper Cassandra Martinez (SO/Madera, Calif) into the goal.
McMillen scored in the fifth minute to open up the scoring on a sharp strike from just outside the 18' that hit side netting. Courtney Callahan then gave the Spires a little breathing room after following up on a goalkeeping mistake by Martinez. A slow rolling ball went into the box and Martinez went to pick it up, unfortunately it went through her hands, between her legs, and ended up in the back of the goal after Callahan finished with the kick.
York stepped up their pressure and in the 20th minute the Panthers struck to after three shots on two. Two shots were blocked by defenders on the goal line before Amber Jimenez (FR/Gilbert, Ariz) finished Logan Dye (FR/Wylie, Texas)'s shot for the goal. Both teams played physical the final 15 minutes of the half to keep the game at 2-1.
York's Corinne McDonald (SR/Liskeard, Cornwall UK) gave the Panthers' hope in the 74th minutes as she converted the penalty kick after Jimenez was pulled down in the penalty area. However, the Panthers were unable to get the equalizer over the final 16 minutes of play and picked up their second conference loss of the season.
Jimenez and McDonald led the team with three shots on goal. Nadia Rodriguez (SR/Denver Colo) was credited with six shots, but they were just off frame.
York is 5-5-2 on the season and will travel to Hillsboro, Kansas on Saturday to face Tabor College. The Panthers are back home on Wednesday, Oct. 18, hosting Friends University.
