The women’s soccer team defeated conference rival Rowan University on a celebratory Senior Night on Oct. 30. The 3-0 win will be a confident segue for the team into the first round of the New Jersey Athletic Conference tournament.

The first half of the match proved to be a standstill on both sides, as the game went into halftime scoreless. However, the second half would show a different side of the Lions, as they came out ready to show their dominance.

Freshman midfielder/forward Gianna Coppola was the first to strike, as she pushed the ball past Rowan’s goalkeeper in the 53rd minute. 

Fifteen minutes later, junior forward Julia Obst delivered a beautiful kick from 20 yards out to put the team up 2-0.

The third and final goal of the match came from senior midfielder Hailey Bodden, who used a free kick to give the College the edge. 

Senior goalkeeper Nicole DiPasquale posted the shutout, and the team outshot Rowan 33-2.

The team faced Rowan yet again in the first round of NJAC play on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
