JACKSON, Miss. -- The Covenant women's soccer team fell to Belhaven, 2-0, on Saturday afternoon inside Belhaven Bowl Stadium.

Sandhoff got the start in goal but only lasted the first 45 minutes of play. The freshman keeper saw five shots on goal, making four saves.

After a Megan Rasku shot was saved Belhaven was able to counter just two minutes later with a Peyton Papenburg goal in the 73rd minute to stretch the lead to two.
