PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University women's soccer possessed the ball most of the match, but it was Cincinnati Christian University who ended up winning, 1-0, Saturday at Dormont Memorial Stadium.

The Celtics (4-9-5, 2-3-5 RSC) put 12 shots on goal, while the Eagles (8-9-1, 5-4-1 RSC) had only two.

The shot that found the back of the net for CCU came in the 71st minute from Maren Hance, who had been knocking on the door the entire second half.

Carlow out-shot the Eagles, 22-10, and held an 11-1 corner kick advantage, but could not convert anything into scoring.

Junior Alexa Schwab (Conway, Pa.) returned to action and put four shots on net for the Celtics.

The game was a battle for Carlow to keep its hopes alive for River States Conference post-season play, but the loss bumped the team out of the running. For a men's and women's soccer post-season update, visit the RSC website here.
