Nazareth shuts out Saints in women's soccer
St. Lawrence University's women's soccer team continued to have trouble converting good scoring chances into goals and dropped its second straight non-league game on Saturday, losing 2-0 at Nazareth.
The 7-4 Saints and 6-4 Golden Flyers were scoreless at the half, but Nazareth struck early in the second half with the first of two goals by Sarah Eichelberger to take control."Today's game was certainly evenly matched in the middle third of the field. At times we were dangerous entering the attack but for the second game in a row we've been a bit off on our finishing," said Saint coach Franco Bari.
"Defensively we broke down a few times which unfortunately cost us two goals. There is a lot we can learn and take away from this match which should prepare us well for conference play."
Eichelberger scored her fourth of the season from Erica Conte 4:49 into the second half and picked up her fifth of the year at the 60:20 mark from Amanda Sudore to complete the scoring. Nazareth goalie Hilary Simon made nine saves for the shutout while Abby van Geldern had 10 saves for the Saints.
Nazareth had a 19-10 edge in shots overall including 12-3 in the second half and had four corner kicks to one for the Saints.
