Women’s soccer closes out season on a high note



Over the weekend, the women’s soccer team finished out their fall season with a win and a tie, succeeding over their losing streak of the previous few games.

On Wednesday, Oct. 24, the ‘Phins faced Pace, and came out ahead with a win of 1-0. The first forty minutes of the game were a constant battle between the two teams, as each was unable to make the first goal. After two attempts at goal, senior midfielder Gabriele Ariola struck gold, making the only goal for the entire game. This makes it her second game-winning goal for the ‘Phins this season.

Freshman goalkeeper Tori Corsaro recorded her fourth shutout of the season, making her the third player in program history for most shutouts in a single season, sharing the spot with head coach Tracey Leipold who accomplished the same feat in 1993. Corsaro also is ranked fourth in the NE-10 league in game shutouts.

On Saturday, Oct. 27, the team played their final game of the season against St. Anselm, ending with a tie of 2-2. This also was the team’s senior game, where they honored their five seniors, Stephanie Bonzerato, Christie Morano, Gabriele Ariola, Lauren Pospiech and Sarah Ward.

St. Anselm came out on top within the first fifteen minutes of the game, where they scored two consecutive goals over the Dolphins. Ten minutes later, with the assists of Bonzerato and Morano, sophomore Lindsey Bakal scored the first goal for the ‘Phins, making her third goal of the season. After having scored one point for the assist, Morano secured her 100th career point, becoming the third in the program to do so.

Going into the second half, the ‘Phins were down by one goal. After successive attempts at goal by both sides, Le Moyne was finally able to score. Bonzerato took a shot towards the penalty box, where it hit the post to then be headed by Morano into the goal. This goal became Morano’s 45th goal overall in her career, and is now tied for the most career goals by an active player in the NE-10. For the remainder of the second half, each team fought to secure a goal but was unable to.

In overtime, neither team was able to score the final goal to end the tie. Corsaro shined, making nine saves total in the game, with three crucial saves in overtime. These nine saves pushed Corsaro up to 101 saves for the whole season, becoming the first to record over a hundred saves since the 2004 season.

Last weekend marked the two final games for the women’s team this year, making their final record 1-9-5 for the 2012 season.
