ORONO, Maine -- Erin Corey scored in the 19th minute and it proved to be the only goal of the match as the University of Maine women's soccer team defeated the University of New Hampshire, 1-0, in America East action Sunday afternoon.
UNH is now 8-7-2 overall and 4-3-0 in America East. Maine improved to 11-4-1, 5-2-0. The Wildcats are tied for fourth place in the conference standings at 12 points with Binghamton University and the University of Vermont, both of whom UNH has defeated this season. The top six teams qualify for the America East tournament.
Heather Horton fed Corey the ball and she broke in alone on Wildcat goalkeeper Lynn Gugliuzza (Kenmore, N.Y.). Corey kept the ball until Gugliuzza committed and then shot the ball into the empty net to give Maine the 1-0 lead.
Gugliuzza recorded six saves while Black Bear counterpart Yanya Adorno stopped just one shot to earn the shutout.
Maine generated a 19-4 shot advantage in the game.
UNH returns to action Oct. 28 (7 p.m.) at Stony Brook and concludes the regular season Oct. 30 (1 p.m.) at Albany.
