PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Quinnipiac scored a goal in the first half and two in the second half to defeat the Providence College women's soccer team by a score of 3-0. The win gives the Bobcats a 4-1-0 record, while the Friars fall to 1-4-1 on the season.
The Friars dominated early play and had the first scoring chance when Quinnipiac committed a foul in the box. Sophomore Nicole Benko (Valley Stream, N.Y.) took the ensuing penalty kick and hit the crossbar. Quinnipiac was able to clear the ball ending the Friar chance. Less than a minute later, junior Kimberly Pine (Fairfield, Conn.) had another opportunity with a shot from 18 yards that went just wide of the goal. But it was the Bobcats who struck first, after Lauren Peacock sent a Kyle Myles pass into the back of the net.
In the second half, junior Victoria Neff (Fairfield, Conn.) took a shot that went high over the crossbar in the 63rd minute. Less than 30 seconds later, Benko sent senior Morgan Spatafore (Katonah, N.Y.) in on a through ball down the right channel but Spatafore's shot was saved by Bobcat goalkeeper Chloe Beizer.
Quinnipiac converted again in the 64th minute when Johanne Walleck sent a high cross towards the net that was headed in by Amber Sidoti. Sidoti then scored the final Bobcat goal in the 77th minute on a penalty kick.
The Friars will next play Connecticut this Friday, September 21st at 4:00 p.m. at Glay Field.
