NEW BRITAIN, CONN. - On Sunday, September 2 the Providence College women's soccer team defeated Central Connecticut, 2-1. Friar freshman Catherine Zimmerman(Madison, N.J.) tallied her third goal of the season in the team's victory.
After scoring two goals in the Friar's win over Lehigh on Friday, August 31, Zimmerman notched the first goal of Sunday's match-up with Central Connecticut. The goal came in the 21st minute off of a corner kick serviced from senior Laura DiClemente(Blue Bell. P.a.).
