MARCY, N.Y. - The Gallaudet University women's soccer team lost 3-1 to SUNY Poly, the top team in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) North Division, here Sunday.

Gallaudet (6-4, 2-3 NEAC) got on the scoreboard first when junior Brittany Mallach (Milton, Ontario) scored her league best 15th goal of the season in the 13th minute. Mallach scored her goal after she gathered a rebound from a missed shot by freshman forward Danielle Wheeler (San Jose, Calif.) that hit the crossbar and bounced back into the field of play.

The Bison held the 1-0 lead for five minutes before SUNY Poly (7-1-1, 4-0-1 NEAC) got on the board with a goal from Adriana Marcolin off an assist from Brittany Waterbury. The Wildcats scored twice more, in a 10-minute span, to take a 3-1 lead into halftime.

SUNY Poly outshot Gallaudet 14-4 in the first half and 22-5 in the game. Neither team added any goals in the second half. 

Sophomore goalie Silvya Levesque (Ballston Spa, N.Y.) finished the game with six saves.


  • SUNY Poly held a 7-3 edge in corner kicks
  • Wheeler led the Bison with three shots (two shots on goal)

Gallaudet will remain on the road and face Penn St.-Abington (4-6, 2-2 NEAC) next weekend on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 2 p.m.
