WOMEN'S SOCCER SHUT OUT ON THE ROAD BY STONY BROOK
BOX

STONY BROOK, N.Y. – Aria Tanzi scored in the 32nd minute, and Marisa Viola recorded her seventh straight shutout to help Stony Brook University down the University of New Hampshire women’s soccer team, 1-0, Thursday at LaValle Stadium.

With the loss – their first of conference play – the Wildcats drop their record to 7-5-1, including 3-1-0 in America East, while the Seawolves improve to 6-2-4 overall, and 3-0-1 in the conference.

Stony Brook, which has not lost in its last eight games, got on the board with 13:03 remaining in the first half when Tanzi took the ball at the top of the box and buried it in the upper left corner of the net, just out of the reach of UNH goalkeeper Ally Yost (Langhorne, Pa.).

Viola, the America East Co-Player of the Week along with Wildcat junior Michelle Sheehan (Belmont, Mass.), made two saves to extend her scoreless streak to 724:37.

Yost made four saves in net for the Wildcats, who were shut out for the fourth time this season on the road, falling to 0-4-0 in road games.

The ‘Cats received a pair of good chances from junior forward Caitlin Whelan (Weymouth, Mass.). Whelan clanked a ball off the post in the first half, and then forced Viola to make a diving save in the final two minutes on a skidding shot from 18 yards out.

The Wildcats return to action Sunday, Oct. 14 when they travel to Vermont to take on the Catamounts at 1 p.m.
