QUEENS, N.Y. - On Thursday, September 13 the Providence College women's soccer team began its 2012 BIG EAST slate in Queens, N.Y. in a night cap with St. John's. The Friars defeated the Red Storm, 2-0, with both goals coming from freshman Catherine Zimmerman (Madison N.J.) The victory over St. John's improves the Friars' win streak to five games.
The Friars struck first in the 31st minute when Zimmerman finished a feed from teammate, sophomore Allison Walton (Brunswick, Maine). Walton passed the pall to Zimmerman who had a one touch finish to the right corner. This goal marked Zimmerman's sixth goal and Walton's second assist on the season. The Friars would carry their 1-0 lead into halftime.
In the 75th minute the Friars notched their second goal of the match on a freshman connection between Courtney Maguire (Smithfield, R.I.) and Zimmerman. Maguire's pass found Zimmerman's feet and her strike found the back of the net. The second goal of the match tallied Zimmerman's seventh goal on the season and Maguire's first points as a Friar on the assist.
Zimmerman has notched a goal in each of the last five games that the Friars have played and leads the Friars' stat sheet with 15 points on seven goals and one assist.
Providence out-shot St. John's, 14-9 and held the advantage in corners, 7-2. Sophomore goalkeeper Jessica Goudreault (Sherborn, Mass.) made her sixth appearance in goal for the Friars and recorded her third win of the season. Goudreault finished the game with three saves.
The Friars carry their five-game win streak into their BIG EAST home opener against Syracuse on Sunday, September 16 (1:00 p.m.). The game will be played in Providence, R.I. on Glay Field.
