GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville women’s soccer team gave its best effort on Saturday, frustrating the Florida Gators for large stretches and denying many shots on goal. Unfortunately, the Dolphins were mostly unable to do much to counter the intense pressure they were under and eventually Florida was able to find a couple cracks in the JU defense, scoring a goal in each half to come away with a 2-0 win in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Atlantic Sun Tournament MVP Sarah Sierra was once again huge in goal for Jacksonville. The junior keeper made 12 saves on 26 Florida shots on the afternoon. Also making a huge impact for the Dolphins was the Atlantic Sun Defender of the Year, Ally Lee. In her final match wearing the Green & Gold, Lee negated Florida’s Savannah Jordan, keeping the scorer of 22 goals this season from finding the back of the net.
