Junior forward Charlotte Jackson scored her first goal of the season but the Lake Forest College women's soccer team was defeated 3-1 by visiting Milwaukee School of Engineering on Friday.

Jackson took a pass from fellow junior forward Susie Baca 45 yards from the goal, beat the MSOE defenderup the middle of the field, and slipped the ball past the Raider goalkeeper and into the goal. The second score of Jackson's career tied the game at one at the 16:30 mark of the contest.

The score remained 1-1 until the visitors netted what proved to be the game-winner with just 9:36 remaining in the contest. The Raiders then clinched the victory on a goal with just 59.2 seconds on the clock.

Lake Forest out-shot MSOE 9-8 in the contest and put five shots on goal to the Raiders' four but were unable to come away with their first victory of the season. Both teams came into the game 0-3-0.

The Foresters will also play their next four games at home, beginning with a match-up against North Park University next Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
