WASHINGTON - The Gallaudet University women's soccer team held the second-best team in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) to only two goals Saturday at Hoy Field but the Bison were held scoreless in a 2-0 defeat.
The Bison (2-11, 1-6 NEAC) were shutout for the third straight game but they remained in the game thanks to Gallaudet's defense led by senior goalie Jennifer Livengood (Jacksonville, Fla.). The Chargers (7-5, 6-1 NEAC) scored an early goal, in the 10th minute, but didn't score again for 70 minutes. Livengood turned away six of her season-high 14 saves in the first half.
The Chargers made both of their shots on unassisted plays. Freshman Maddie Dionne made the first goal in under 10 minutes 1-on-1 with Livengood from the top of the box. Junior Kirsten Webster scored her ninth goal of the season unassisted in the second half with nearly 10 minutes left of play.
- Livengood broke her record for saves this season, previously she had 13 against Penn St.-Abington (Sept. 26)
- Freshman Brittany Mallach (Milton, Ontario) took GU's only shot
- LBC took 16 corner kicks while GU was limited to only one corner kick
- The Bison haven't beat Lancaster Bible since 2009 when they won 3-1 at home
The Bison will play at home tomorrow (Sunday,Oct. 11) in more conference action against Penn St.-Berks at 2 p.m.
