A short-handed Astoria team could not keep up with Corbett in a nonleague girls soccer game Thursday night, as the Cardinals topped the Lady Fishermen 4-2.

Astoria went into its season opener short-handed due to injuries, then lost two more players over the course of the game.

Elle Espelien scored both Astoria goals late in the contest.

The Fishermen have a week off before returning to action next Thursday against St. Helens at CMH Field.
