Lloyd scored twice but the Central Connecticut women's soccer
team dropped a 3-2 decision on the road at Providence on Friday
afternoon. Lloyd converted her second penalty kick in as many
games but the Blue Devils fall to 2-4 overall on the season with
the loss. Central returns to action on Sunday at UConn beginning
at 1 p.m.
Lloyd gave the Blue Devils the early lead scoring just 6:59 into the match. She took a feed from Nathalie Nilsson and shot from the top left of the box over the keeper for the score. Nilsson, the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week this week, has a team-best four assists on the season.
The Friars responded with one goal before halftime to tie the game at 1-1 at the break. Alyssa Martino netted her third goal of the season to tie the game at 29:18. Providence then scored the first two goals after halftime to take a 3-1 lead. Jenna Roncarati and Kate Delciampo gave the Friars the lead with 20 minutes to play in the game.
Lloyd's second goal of the game, and fifth of the season, cut the lead to 3-2. She scored on a penalty kick, her second of the season, with under five minutes to play. The Blue Devils could not tie the game in the final minutes and lost their second straight match.
Freshman Nikola Deiter made three saves in goal for the Blue Devils.
Central returns to action on Sunday, playing at Connecticut beginning at 1 p.m.
