On Sept. 23, the women’s soccer team faced off against the York College of Pennsylvania at Lions Stadium. 

The Lions have been on a hot-streak, as they entered Monday’s match with three straight victories, two of them being shutouts.

Producing another shutout victory, the Lions managed to improve their record to 7-1-0 on the season. The game went scoreless for the majority of the match, with the College outshooting York 11-0. 

York’s goalkeeper put up a solid effort, as she only let one shot slip by her.

In the 58th minute, junior forward Randi Smith got off a pass to the middle, finding sophomore defensive-mid Alexandra Ryan for the only goal of the game. 

From then on, the defense completely suppressed any hopes of a response from York’s main scorers. As usual, the Lions controlled the pace, holding the ball for 75 percent of their 1-0 victory.

On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Lions went against Ramapo College once again at Lions Stadium. The College managed to allow no goals for the fourth straight game, as it came out on top 7-0.

Blowing past Ramapo, the College got on the board with sophomore forward Nikki Butler shooting a rebound into the back of the net, taking the lead just under five minutes into the game. 

Sophomore midfielder Lauren McLaughlin was the next to score, this time off a corner kick assist. 

Junior midfielder Kelly Carolan scored another one of many insurance goals in the 59th minute. 

Four more goals came from junior defender Ally Weaver, freshman forward Jessica O’Brien, junior midfielder Caroline Rubin and freshman forward Gianna Minerva. 

The Lions out shot Ramapo 44-1 over the course of the match, improving their record to 8-1-0.

The College will take the field again against Rutgers University-Camden in a New Jersey Athletic Conference match tonight at 7 p.m.
