TEANECK, N.J. - Junior Jen Pfeiffer was in the right spot at the right time Friday evening as the Saint Joseph's forward buried a rebound to give the Hawks' women's soccer team a 1-0 victory at Fairleigh Dickinson.
In a game in which SJU posted a 20-9 shot advantage, the Hawks couldn't find the back of the net during regulation time or the first extra frame, but converted on their last shot. It wasn't until the 113th minute of the match that the game was decided.
Saint Joseph's freshman Mo Hawkins drilled a shot on net, only to have FDU's Stephanie Tanzi sprawl to stop it. Fortunately for the Hawks, the ball squirted free and Pfeiffer quickly deposited it into the back of the net to give SJU the victory.
Individually, sophomore goalkeeper Christine Neal made six saves to earn the shutout. Pfeiffer's goal gives her a team-high seven on the season and moves her into a tie for third all-time with 20 career goals. Hawkins' assist on the goal improves her team lead in assists to five.
With the win, the Hawks improve to 3-4-0 on the year, while Fairleigh Dickinson falls to 0-7-0.
Saint Joseph's returns to action this Sunday at Hartford at 2 p.m.
