Skyhawks cut deficit to one early in second half, unable to rally further
Freshman Brianna Duserick scored her first career goal today in Stonehill's 3-1 loss at Assumption.
WORCESTER, Mass. (October 12, 2013) – The Stonehill College women's soccer team dug itself into an early hole before falling by a 3-1 margin at Assumption College today in Northeast-10 competition at Assumption's Multi-Sport Stadium.
Assumption junior midfielder Lindsey Miller (Hanover, Mass./Hanover) scored in the 11th minute on a feed from senior forward Justine DiDonato (Eastchester, N.Y./Eastchester) to stake the Greyhounds to an early advantage.
The home team would double its lead in the 37th minute, when junior back Nicole Brady (Rockland, Mass./Rockland) found the back of the net with the help of junior forward Liz Manganella (Sandwich, Mass./Sandwich), who provided the assist.
Stonehill got right back into the contest just two minutes into the second half on freshman midfielder Brianna Duserick's (Canton, Mass./Canton) first career marker, to cut the Assumption advantage to one.
The Greyhounds responded 34 seconds after Duserick's goal with one of their own, this time by senior forward Kelsey Imondi (Warwick, R.I./Toll Gate). With the tally, Imondi became the third different player to score for Assumption in the contest.
Assumption junior goalkeeper Rachel Edgin (Whitesboro, N.Y./Whitesboro) stopped nine shots for the Greyhounds, while her counterpart, Stonehill senior captain Amy Wheaton (Dartmouth, Mass./Dartmouth), made four saves.
Stonehill (3-7-2, 3-4-1 NE-10) will be back on the road this Wednesday, as the Skyhawks return to Northeast-10 action at Merrimack College. Stonehill will then be back in Easton a week from today for a 1 p.m. contest with Southern Connecticut State University. Assumption (5-1-4, 3-1-4 NE-10) will face a tough test in its next match, as the Greyhounds are set to take on nationally ranked St. Rose on Wednesday night in Albany, N.Y.
