Colleges: Tampa women downed by Columbus State

Two goals in three minutes put No.6 Columbus State ahead in the first half, and the University of Tampa women’s soccer team was unable to respond as the host Cougars won 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Kara Mundelein opened the scoring in the 38th minute as she converted a penalty kick, and Emily Fifield doubled the less than two minutes later, scoring off an assist by Stephanie Parrish.

After taking No.8 Carson-Newman to overtime on Friday, Tampa (3-4-1) struggled to find any offense against the Cougars, only mustering five shots, only one of which was on target.

Gina Goforth scored the third goal for Columbus State (6-0-1) in the 74th minute as she put home an opportunity created by Mundelein.

The Spartans next travel to No.19 Armstrong Atlantic on Friday, with a second game in Georgia against Georgia College and State slated for next Sunday to close out Tampa’s non-conference schedule.
