HANOVER, N.H.-- On a rainy morning at Dartmouth College, Cal-Poly scored their only goal in the eighth minute of the game which proved to be the difference in their 1-0 victory over the Providence College women's soccer team in the Dartmouth Classic.
Sophomore striker Jill Camburn (Doylestown, Pa.) had three shots for the Friars in the effort in a game that was heavily contested throughout. Providence played behind almost the entire game after Cal-Poly's Kaleena Andruss sent a corner kick in front of the net which was headed in by Julieanne Grinstead. This was the first of the Mustangs' six corner kicks. PC finished the game with two corners.
Senior goalkeeper Laura Elfers (Deer Park, N.Y.) kept Providence in the game with a solid effort in front of the net. Elfers made nine saves during the game. Cal-Poly finished the game with 22 shots total while the Friars tallied six shots in the contest.
The Friars kept up the defensive pressure throughout the game and caused four offsides calls on the Mustangs. Thie defensive effort was led by senior defender Lauren Vecchione (Sudbury, Mass.) who also took two shots during the game along with her defensive duties.
Providence will next play their first home game of the season on Friday, September 14th against the Hartford Hawks at 4:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast on Cox Sports Television in the Providence area.
