Saint Joseph's women's soccer team picked up its first home win of the year with a 1-0 victory over Stony Brook on Sunday. Junior Morgan Bower tallied the game-winning goal in the 12th minute and rookie goalkeeper Emily Cuccio made three saves for her first collegiate shutout as the Hawks improved to 2-1-1 on the season.
How It Happened
• Morgan Bower scored the game-winning goal, and her first goal of the season, on a shot over the goalkeeper's head from inside the box at 11:45.
• Emily Cuccio made three saves, with two coming in the second half, for her first collegiate win and shutout.
• Saint Joseph's improved to 2-0-0 all-time versus the Sea Wolves.
"I think the play was one thing that we've really worked on in practice...trying to find our forwards' feet and connecting midfield to forward. I think Gab Vagnozzi did a really good job just trying to get that ball through and it all helped it get together," Bower said of her goal.
The Hawks remain at home and host James Madison on Thursday at 7 p.m.
