The shutout loss came in spite of a 14-strikeout, two- walk performance from Olivia Kazumura, who allowed two earned runs on three hits.

The Pacers, who entered halftime with a 2-0 edge, allowed Miller’s goal assisted by Megan Zeller at the 48th minute.

“We played a lot of scrappy soccer tonight but dug ourselves too big a hole in the first half,” Falcons assistant coach Jon Kao said. “In the second half, we created a lot of threats with Mackenzie Fricke picking out our strikers.”

As for Miller, Kao said she played her best game of the season and noted her persistence.

“Ashley Miller probably played her best game yet and was a constant nuisance at the top of the 18,” he said. “The rest of the team battled hard and we just came up short tonight.”
