PHILADELPHIA - The Saint Joseph's women's soccer team got a goal from freshman Emily Gingrich, but it wasn't enough for the Hawks as they dropped their Atlantic 10 opening game to Massachusetts, 2-1, Sunday afternoon at Sweeney Field.

The Minutewomen (5-5-1, 1-0-0 A-10) opened scoring in the the eighth minute as Rebekka Sverrisottir headed in a centering pass by Grace Coombs off a set piece at 7:19.

Massachusetts added to their lead in the 35th minute as Becky Landers made it a 2-0 game. Off a lofted centering pass from the right wing by Madison Smith, Landers headed the ball into the back of the net at 34:18.

Gingrich cut the deficit to 2-1 scoring out of a scrum in the Massachusetts' box in the 78th minute. With the ball bouncing around, SJU's Erica Graziosi touched passed the ball to Gingrich who followed with the goal.

The Hawks (4-5-2, 0-0-1 A-10) would have its best chance to tie the game up in the 88th minute off a set piece inside the Massachusetts' box. Unfortunately for the Hawks, the Minutewomen blocked the potential tying shot and held SJU at a distance for the final moments.

For the game, both teams tallied 12 shots, with SJU coming out ahead in corners, 6-5.

In net, senior Lauren Jancuska made a game-high six saves for the Hawks.

Saint Joseph's returns to action next Sunday at Fordham at 1 p.m.
