BR-3 Columbus State University (8-0-1) is officially on a roll, storming past Young Harris (2-6-0) 3-1 on Saturday en route to their fifth straight victory after beating down Georgia College 5-0 last Wednesday.
After a shot rang off the crossbar early in the match by sophomore Taylor Marks, Midfielder Stephanie Kolwicz got the scoring started late in the first half after a pass by Rebecca Calder to give CSU a 1-0 lead (42’).
Young Harris had a chance to tie it up in the 44th minute but goalkeeper Marylyn Parsons made a great save on midfielder Rachel Hill.
It was almost a mirror image of the Georgia College game in the first half for the Lady Cougars, who out shot Young Harris 13-2 (they out shot Georgia 13-1 last Wednesday night).
After scoring two goals the previous game against Georgia, sophomore forward Mandy Janowitz stayed hot by getting on the board in the 52nd minute after beating Harris goalkeeper Arielle Charles in the box to extend the lead to 2-0.
Young Harris wouldn’t go away though, as they got on the board in the 75th minute with Rachel Hill beating Parsons this time from 33 yards out.
CSU put the nail in the coffin in the 84th minute when junior forward Kelsey Pelletier collected her third goal of season by heading in a ball after a long throw-in by Chelsea Person to give them a two-goal lead.
It was just another big win for the Lady Tigers, who outshot Young Harris 27-8 and earned twelve corner kicks to two. It was also the fifth consecutive game scoring three or more goals.
They now move to 8-0-1 and 4-0 in conference play, while Young Harris drops to 2-6-0 and 1-4-0.
They will look to continue their unbeaten streak back at home when they take on Georgia Southwestern on Wednesday.
