PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University women's soccer ended up on the losing end of a 3-0 contest against NCAA DIII challenger Baldwin Wallace University Saturday at Highmark Stadium.

Both teams were evenly matched with five shots apiece in the first half, but Carlow goalkeeper Lauren Forte (SO/Johnstown, Pa.) stopped four of the Baldwin Wallace shots on goal, sending the teams into the locker rooms at halftime deadlocked, 0-0.

The Yellow Jackets (5-2) broke the tie in the 53rd minute off the toe of Maddie Farrell. A foul in the box set up a penalty kick for Baldwin Wallace in the 60th minute, and goalkeeper Anya Achtyl (FR/Lancaster, N.Y.) was unable to come up with the stop, putting the Yellow Jackets up, 2-0. Achtyl made three saves in the second half.

Carlow had a chance to cut the lead to one in the 83rd minute on a penalty kick. Rachel Flory (SR/Huntington Beach. Calif.) stepped to the line for the Celtics, but Baldwin Wallace keeper Emma Bruno stopped the shot.

Baldwin Wallace scored its third goal in the final seconds of the game when the Celtics allowed Brandi Filippi to dribble down the baseline and slip her shot into the side of the net.

The Celtics (2-5, 1-0 USCAA) held a 5-2 corner kick advantage, but Baldwin Wallace put 10 shots on goal to Carlow's four. Junior Alexa Schwab (Conway, Pa.) had six shots (two on goal) for the Celtics.

Carlow travels to the University of Cincinnati Clermont for a USCAA match on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m.
