ST. LOUIS, MO- After a series of injuries struck the Hornets, HSSU faced the biggest challenge of their season in hosting the No. 5 team in the country of Columbia College.

Columbia pushed past the offense to get 28 shots fired off, 16 of them coming in the first 45 minutes of play. Harris-Stowe was held to just 2 shots the entire game.

The Cougars saw their first goal come in the 23' when Laurie Frew dribbled past Hornets defenders and took a shot from the left side of the box and found the top right corner of the net for a 1-0 lead.

Just 4 minutes later, Joanna Taylor got a ball from Sarah Taylor on the defensive line for a 1-on-1 with HSSU's goalkeeper, Camila Chaves (FR/Bogota, Columbia), and took a 2-0 lead. Abigail Meyer (40') and Kelsey Mirts (74') would round out the rest of the scoring for the Cougars to win 4-1 and continute their perfect season.

Harris-Stowe drops to 1-4 for the season and 0-2 in conference play. 

Chaves recorded 10 saves to bring her season total up to 32 where she is rankled 7th in the conference.

Johanna Wallstab (FR/Munich, Germany ) recorded the lone 2 shots for the Hornets today while Claire Tomaw (SO/Baraboo, Wisconsin) and Karla Garcia (FR/Waukegan, Illinois) both blocked multiple shots by Columbia's offense.

The Hornets will be back in action this Saturday when they host the Pirates of Park University. Kick-off is set for 1 p.m.
