ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The Paul Smith's College women's soccer season came to an end Friday in the consolation bracket of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association national championship tournament.

After losing 5-1 in the national quarterfinals against Albany College of Pharmacy on Thursday, the Bobcats came back Friday with a 5-1 loss to Warren Wilson College, the host school. It was the first time in Paul Smith's school history that a soccer team advanced to the eight-team national tournament.

Unlike Thursday's loss in which the Bobcats fell behind 4-0 by halftime, Paul Smith's was right in the mix Friday after a late first-half goal set the score at 2-1 going into the half.

Nicole Landry scored her second goal of the tournament at the 40:15 mark of the first half to cut Warren Wilson's lead to 2-1.

The Owls took over from there, scoring three goals in the second half to walk away with the 5-1 victory.

Paul Smith's goalkeeper Asenath Brooks stopped four of the nine shots she faced as Warren Wilson held a 15-8 advantage in shots taken.

The Bobcats, who came into the tournament ranked No. 4 nationally, finished the season with a 10-4-1 record.

Daemen College and University of Maine-Fort Kent will play for the national championship today at 11 a.m.
