Oct. 4: Three members of the junior class scored a goal as the St. Lawrence University women's soccer team handed Nazareth College a 3-1 loss on Saturday afternoon in regional action in Rochester, NY.
St. Lawrence, who was most recently ranked eighth in the NSCAA/adidas Regional Coaches Poll, improves to an 8-1-2 overall record, while the Golden Flyers, who were ranked sixth in the region heading into the contest, fall to 7-4-0.
Scoring for the Saints included junior midfielder Stanzi McGlynn (Montoursville, PA/Montoursville Area H.S.), junior forwards Megan Howard (Shelburne, VT/Champlain Valley Union) and Lauren Annaldo (Hampton, NH/Winnacunnet). Assisting the goals included junior forward Courtney Hendrick (West Newton, MA/Newton North), rookie midfielder Elena Rogers (Naugatuck, CT/Stratton Mountain School), and sophomore back Nicky Hynes (Carleton Place, ONT/The Kent School).
Despite Nazareth outshooting the Scarlet and Brown 13-7, each team had six shots on the other's net. The Saints got up on the scoreboard first after a strong build up on the left side of the field in the 24th minute as the squad gained momentum. Sophomore forward Lizzie Bogosian (Manlius, NY/Loomis Chaffee) served a dangerous ball across the 18 yard box, but no Saint could connect on it. Hendrick got on the end of the ball and laid it off to McGlynn, who struck a low driven ball through traffic, beating Nazareth keeper Hillary Simon just inside the post for a 1-0 edge with 23:12 on the clock.
