The women's soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision Saturday morning.

CAMDEN, N.J. – Host Rutgers-Camden scored a pair of second half goals to rally for a 2-1 non-league women's soccer victory over Shenandoah Saturday morning.

The Scarlet Raptors (1-2) scored in the 70th and 80th minutes to earn the come-from-behind win over Shenandoah (2-2).

Sophomore Emily Yergin had given the Hornets the initial advantage with her unassisted goal at 29:39.

Yergin's tally, her third of the season, held up until Rutgers-Camden knotted the equalizer at 69:22 on a set play following a corner kick.

At 79:33, the hosts got the game-winner as Melissa Peel, who had scored that tying goal, freed Meghan Wachira up with a through pass and Wachira was able to be the charging Haley Golden.

Shenandoah dominated possession in the game, outshooting its hosts 21-14 and taking six of the nine corners.

All three SU keepers played in the contest with Golden and Kasey Richitt both registering two saves and allowing one goal.

The Hornets complete this weekend trip with a 1 p.m. game at Stockton (N.J.) Sunday.
