Columbus State beats Montevallo, can win share of PBC title Saturday

October 30, 2013 

Columbus State took the lead early in the second half and held off Montevallo 2-1 on Wednesday at the Walden Soccer Complex.

The victory kept the Lady Cougars hopes for a share of the Peach Belt Conference title alive. CSU, which is 12-5 overall is 8-2 in the PBC, good for 24 points.

Clayton State is 8-0-3 for 27 points, so CSU, with a win against UNC Pembroke on Saturday, would tie Clayton State for the regular-season crown. It would be CSU's first title since 2010.

"Montevallo gave us all that we could handle tonight," coach Jay Entlich said. "We didn't finish off scoring opportunities, but I'm proud of the girls for responding after letting the first lead get away."

CSU scored first at the 10:28 mark as the Falcons failed to clear the ball. Mandy Janowitz made them pay as she scored for a 1-0 lead.

Paige Scott tied the game for Montevallo (2-8-4, 2-6-2) at the 38:08 mark.

Nicole Corcione gave CSU the lead at 58:03 with her team-leading ninth goal, scoring off a deflection.

CSU led Montevallo 17-5 in shots.
