STANISLAUS, Calif. --- California Baptist University couldn’t slip one past Chelsea Lewandowski Saturday as the Lancers fell 2-0 to No. 10 Cal State Stanislaus.
A penalty kick in the 60th minute would have been enough, but the Warriors tacked another on late in the game to seal the 2-0 win.
The Lancers were outshot 18-8 and managed just four shots on goal as the CSUS defense held fast for the full 90 minutes.
"I thought the girls played hard and gave a great effort, but we just got a little unlucky today," said Head Coach Kristen St. Clair. "We created some good chances, we just couldn't put them away and that's something we have to work on. This is another very tough team and I thought we played well against them."
Bernadette Witz fired a pair of shots in the game, putting one on target in the first half, but couldn’t find the back of the net.
Tambrie Awai again made Lewandowski work in the 79th minute when she fired a ball on goal and Vesling followed with a shot wide just a few minutes late, but those were the last opportunities of the night for CBU.
Katelyn Nebesnick buried a penalty shot 10 minutes into the second half and then added her second of the game in the 88th minute, banking one off the CBU defense and into the net on a failed clearing attempt.
The Warriors had two players post four shots on goal each as they put 10 balls on frame. CBU keeper Leigh Ann Lindsey made seven saves in the game.
The loss drops CBU to 0-2 on the season and improves CSUS to 2-0.
The Lancers continue their road trip, facing Sonoma State on Monday.
