FULLERTON, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton women's soccer fell 2-0 to the Denver Pioneers on Sunday afternoon. Samantha Feller scored both goals for the Pioneers to hand the Titans a loss in the final non-conference match of the season.
After a scoreless first half, Feller broke the deadlock in the 49th minute when Camryn MacMillan played a low cross into the center of the 18-yard box. Feller had a shot, goalkeeper Tianna Sanders saved it but the rebound went right back to Feller who shot it low and scored her first goal of the season.
The rest of the second half, the Titans were aggressive and continuously playing balls into the Denver 18-yard box but they were unable to capitalize. In the final minute of the match, the Titans had everybody forward in search of the tying goal. Denver gained possession and Natalie Beckman played a through ball to Feller who had a breakaway and finished the play with a goal at the 89:48 mark.
Denver (4-4-2) took 14 shots, nine of which were on target, seven of which were saved by Sanders. Fullerton (3-7-1) had 13 shots and four were on target. The Titans won seven corner kicks while Denver won just three and zero in the second half.
Fullerton opens up conference play with two home matches. The Titans host Long Beach State at 7 p.m. on Thursday and then UC Riverside on Sunday at 5 p.m.
