PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Monday, October 1, the Providence College women's soccer team hosted BIG EAST foe DePaul in an afternoon cap at Glay Field. The Friars defeated the Blue Demons 1-0, with the game winner coming from freshman Lauren Elia(Erie, Pa.) The Friars improved their BIG EAST record to 3-3-0 (8-5-1 Overall) while the Blue Demons fell to a 2-3-0 BIG EAST record (7-6-1 Overall).
The first 45 minutes at Glay Field were scoreless. The Friars out-shot DePaul, 6-5 but carried a 0-0 tie into the half.
The Friars generated an attack in the 73rd minute of play when junior Alyssa Martino(Plainville, Conn.) carried the ball up the left flank. Martino's cross was finished by Elia who volleyed the feed into the back of the net. Elia's finish marked her fourth goal of the year and Martinos assist served as her second on the season. Combined the two have tallied 10 points for the Friars, eight and two, respectively.
