CSM’s Hawks Women’s Soccer drops match to Raptors, 7-1

The College of Southern Maryland Hawks women’s soccer team lost to the Montgomery College Raptors on September 10 by a score of 7-1.

Sophomore Karleigh Cohen scored the lone goal for the Hawks in the sixth minute of action. When she found herself on a breakaway down the right side of the field with one defender on her, she took a shot just outside the 18-yard box that looped over the Montgomery goalie and into the back left corner of the net to put CSM up 1-0.

One of sophomore goalkeeper Camille Cooley‘s 11 saves came in the 17th minute that preserved the Hawks’ 1-0 lead. After a Montgomery forward did well to create space and get a shot off in the box, Cooley reacted quickly to jump and block the scoring attempt away from the goal.

The Raptors eventually broke through in the 42nd minute to even the score at 1-1.

The Hawks could not muster up much offense in the second half though, only recording three more shots.

Montgomery added on six goals in the second half to hand CSM their second loss of the season.

The Hawks will look to secure their first victory of the season when they travel to face the Anne Arundel Community College Riverhawks on September 12.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
