KEYSER, W.Va. — After falling behind 1-0, undefeated Potomac State scored two goals in less than two minutes to take the lead and would hold on to win 21 Saturday against visiting Howard.

Laurel Podlesnik scored her 15th goal of the season by scoring unassisted 23:42 into the first half for the tie and Cassie Alamo broke the tie at 25:33 with an unassisted goal.

Howard took the lead less than seven minutes into the half on an unassisted goal by Meghan Grimes.

The Catamounts were outshot 9-6 and trailed 5-4 in corner kicks. Acasha Smith had eight saves in the win, with Desiree Sojonier getting four saves.

Raven Bierman and Kelsey Kimmell were credited with cementing the Cats defense as PSC improved to 12-0 win one regular season match left.

"Our women played with great heart, Said Potomac State Head Coach Mark Sprouse. "This victory is special as we'd never beaten Howard in the 11 years I've coached. This also marks the class of 2011 as having the most wins of any other PSC Women's class with 22 victories and a chance for more."

Potomac State will try to complete the undefeated season on Saturday when it plays at Montgomery-Rockville, the defending national champion in NJCAA.
