Rainbow Wahine drop close contest in Northridge

The Rainbow Wahine came out firing against the Cal State Northridge Matadors but came up blank, losing 1-0 at Matador Soccer Field yesterday. Hawaii outshot the Matadors 29-8, including the first six shots of the game, but was unable to capitalize. Cal State Northridge's Farryn Townley scored the game's lone goal at the 15:41 mark and the Matadors never looked back. CSNU goalie Kellie Brenner was solid the whole night with 12 saves and knocking the Rainbow Wahine to 1-6-1.
