In the final game of Kent State’s non-conference schedule, the Flashes were looking to salvage a two-game home stand, having already lost to Ohio State on Sunday afternoon. However, instead of coming away with a split, the Flashes fell again, this time at the hands of the No. 11 California Golden Bears, 5-2.

Cal seemed to catch Kent State sleeping early in the game, scoring two goals within the first seven minutes. Each of Cal’s five goals were scored by a different player, and all five came from the field. The Flashes had nine more corner attempts than the Bears, but scored only once off of a corner, a rebound that was knocked in for a goal by senior Amy Wimsatt. Debbie Bell recorded an assist by sending an endline cross to freshman Paige Bordner, who knocked in the pass for her first collegiate goal. Freshman goalkeeper Jahna Jordan was again impressive despite the loss, making six saves. The Flashes dropped to 2-6 on the season and will open Mid-American Conference play on Saturday at Missouri State.
