Stow’s advantage was further padded by Hobart’s second goal of the contest in the second half. Senior midfielder/forward Sophia Yoder intercepted a Louisville pass 43 yards away from the net. As Yoder gained control, Hobart sprinted past her upfield and created an opening. Yoder led Hobart ahead with a pass and Hobart dribbled through the defense before shooting right to left into the open net.
The Lady Leopards are now 0-1-1 against the Lady Bulldogs all-time. Their only other meeting came in last year’s season opener at Stow, a scoreless 0-0 tie
