Greenville, S.C. -- Kennesaw State broke a scoreless tie less than four minutes into the second half and held on to down Furman, 1-0, in non-conference women's soccer action on Friday night at Stone Soccer Stadium.

The loss, Furman's first of the season, dropped the Paladins to 3-1-0 and halted their 15-match regular season unbeaten run. Kennesaw State improved to 4-1-0 on the season.

In the 49th minute, Erin Harris won a loose ball in the midfield and played Jenna Vollrath in behind the Paladin back line. Vollrath cut across the box to avoid a Furman defender and slotted a shot beneath goalkeeper Allie Cutler, who tried to make a diving stop, for the lone goal of the night.

Furman outshot the Owls 16-9 and managed an 8-4 advantage in shots on target, but KSU's Tiffany Sornpao stopped seven shots and got a key save off the line by a defender on Caitlyn Reilly's strike in the opening minutes of the game to record the shutout. Kellsey Weaver, who played the first 45 minutes in goal for Furman, recorded one save, while the Paladins' defense cleared two shots off the goal line.

The Paladins will look to bounce back on Sunday when they host the Campbell Camels in the first meeting between the schools. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Stone Stadium and the match will be streamed live on the SoCon Digital Network. Links to the stream and to the live stats feed will be available at FurmanPaladins.com.
