Women's Soccer Comes up Short Against Stony Brook, 1-0

STONY BROOK, N.Y. — Sophomore goalkeeper Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) posted her second highest save total of the season with eight stops in net, but the University of New Hampshire women's soccer team fell to Stony Brook, 1-0, Sunday afternoon at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.

The loss drops UNH to 3-10-1 overall and 1-3 in America East play, while Stony Brook improves to 4-9-1 and 2-2-1 in conference action.

Taryn Schoenbeck tallied the game's lone goal, punching in a score on an assist from Larissa Nysch in the 14th minute of the action. Nysch sent a pass to Schoenbeck on the right flank and she punched in the tally from 15 yards out at 13:14 to give the Seawolves an early lead that they would not relinquish.

Stony Brook controlled the early portion of the contest, claiming the advantage in both shots (8-5) and shots on goal (5-2) in the first half of play. Despite the disadvantage in shots, UNH held the edge in corner kicks in the first stanza with a 3-1 advantage.

New Hampshire struck back in the second frame, drawing even with the Seawolves in shots with each squad posting nine apiece. The Wildcats were also able to post five shots on goal in the half, but despite their increased offensive attack, could not find the back of the net the rest of the way.

Monique Lamotte
(Tampa, Fla.) led UNH with three shots, including one on goal attempt. She has posted multiple shots in three of the last four games. Brooke Duchaney (Hampton Falls, N.H.) and Colleen Murray (Bedford, N.H.) also added to the offensive effort, notching two shots each in the loss.

The Wildcats are back in action when they take on the University of Vermont Thursday, Oct. 13 (3 p.m.) at Centennial Field.
