Golowasch nets first goal as a Panther in setback

             PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Junior Maya Golowasch (West Harrison, N.Y.) scored her first goal as a member of the Plymouth State University women's soccer team, but PSU came up on the short end of a 3-1 decision against Roger Williams University in a non-conference game at Arold Field on a drizzly Saturday afternoon.
