ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. (10/27/00) - When the St, Joseph's Hawks look back on the 2000 season, if they want to, they will see a year of tough losses. And St. Bonaventure is just another to add to the list. The Bonnies, 5-10-3 overall, 3-5-1 in Atlantic 10 Conference play, broke open a scoreless tie at intermission with a goal in the 50th minute and added an insurance tally in the 20 minutes later to capture a 2-0 win over the visiting Hawks. The first SBU goal was by junior defender Alyson Reising. She took a pass from junior Kristin Konstanty and fired it into the right corner for her first collegiate career. Senior Kelli Bennett then sent an indirect kick into the box and found senior Jen Twardzik for the insurance goal. Twardzik took the ball out of midair and rocketed a shot into the right corner of the net. The goal was her seventh of the season. St. Bonaventure outshot the Hawks 17-6 for the game. Goalkeepers Karen Cunningham and Breanne Kraly combined for the Bonnies' third shutout of the year. St. Joseph's Christy Ganc made five saves in the loss. The Hawks, which end the season at Duquesne on Sunday, fell to 4-12 overall and 1-8 in A-10 play.
