EASTON, Mass. (September 8, 2012) – The Stonehill College women's soccer team shutout Pace University, 2-0, in Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10) action on Saturday afternoon at Skyhawk Field.
Junior captain and goalkeeper Amy Wheaton (Dartmouth, Mass./Dartmouth) made three saves to preserve her second shutout in as many games while the Skyhawks received goals from freshman midfielder Caroline Stone (Mount Vernon, N.H./Souhegan) and sophomore midfielder Christine Moodie (Littleton, Mass./Littleton).
At 30:17, Stone put the Skyhawks ahead early on as the freshman midfielder dodged a defender near the left post and put home her first career collegiate goal past Setters senior goalkeeper Courtany Hagen (New Paltz, N.Y./New Paltz) for a 1-0 advantage.
Moodie sealed the victory for Stonehill in the 87th minute.
After receiving a high pass towards the middle of the box from freshman forward Natalie Laurin (Chicopee, Mass./Chicopee), Moodie kicked the ball down to her feet and immediately one-timed an arching shot past the dive of Hagen into the lower right corner of the net, her second of the season.
Pace University outshot Stonehill, 10-9, but lost the corners matchup 7-6 to the Skyhawks.
