WOMEN’S SOCCER SUFFERS 3-1 LOSS AT SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE

Manchester, N.H. – Ashley Jaskula was a part of all three goals as Southern New Hampshire registered a 3-1 win over the Le Moyne College women's soccer team in Northeast-10 Conference action on Saturday evening at Larkin Field.

All four goals in the game were scored in the first 23 and one-minutes of play. The Penmen opened the scoring just 1:49 into the contest. Jaskula sent a crossing pass from the left side in front of the goal, where Kaleigh Roberge had her shot go off the hands of freshman goalkeeper Tori Corsaro (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) and into the goal for her sixth tally of the season.

The duo reversed roles 10 minutes later as Southern New Hampshire doubled its lead. Roberge sent a long pass up the field to Jaskula, who took the ball in stride and put a shot inside the far right post for her fourth goal of the year.

Le Moyne cut its deficit in half at the 20:37 mark. Senior forward Christie Morano (Highland, N.Y./Highland) sent a pass to sophomore midfielder Lindsey Bakal (Newark Valley, N.Y./Newark Valley), who beat her defender and fired a shot into the right side of the goal for her second marker of the campaign.

Southern New Hampshire got the goal back just two minutes and 50 seconds later. After taking a pass from Bethi Ledoux, Jaskula scored from 15 yards out with a high-arcing shot.

Neither team threatened to score in the second half, with only Le Moyne putting a shot on goal, which was saved by SNHU goalkeeper Maggie Weldon.

Corsaro made three saves in suffering the loss between the pipes, while Weldon earned the win with two saves. The Penmen registered a 13-7 advantage in shots, while recording seven of the game's nine corner kicks.

Le Moyne (2-5-4, 0-5-4 NE-10), which lost by more than one goal for the first time this season, returns to action on Wednesday at American International at 7:00 p.m.
