Senior Unity Beddingfield’s first half goal was Cal State San Bernardino’s only goal Saturday in a 3-1 loss to Cal Baptist in an exhibition women’s soccer match at the Lancers field.
The Coyotes were outshot 11-6 by the Lancers but had an edge in corner kicks, 6-5.
Beddingfield’s goal came 13:57 into the back, just 43 seconds after Fabiola DaSilva, a junior from Curitibia, Brazil, put the Lancers up 1-0 at the 13:14 mark off an assist by Bernadette Witz.
The tie lasted until the 34th minute when junior Kylee Nicassio, a junior out of Los Osos High School, put the Lancers on top 2-1 with an assist by DaSilva. DaSilva gave CBU an insurance score in the 57th minute on a penalty kick to finish the game with two goals and an assist.
Sophomore Tiffany Jo Mallick yielded all three CBU goals in 66 minutes of play while redshirt freshman Chelsey Jones came on to record a save and hold the Lancers scoreless over the final 23 plus minutes of the match.
CSUSB will play Dixie State in a scrimmage next Saturday before opening up the regular season on Sept. 3 at home against Biola University.
