Blayney and Rachel
Caneen each scored a goal as the Central Connecticut women's

Herd made one save for her fourth straight shutout and fifth of
the season. CCSU outshot the Crusaders15-1 in shots on goal in the

The game marked the fourth straight shutout for senior keeper Herd and the Blue Devil defense which played solid allowing only one shot on goal in the entire 90 minutes. The Crusaders had four total shots against 28 for the home team.
Holy Cross keeper Jessica Stone made 13 stops in net for the Crusaders (0-5-0).
The game was scoreless through the first 76 minutes before Blayney found the net at 76:01 to give the Blue Devils the 1-0 lead. Blayney took a pass in the box from freshman Jillian Cipriano, made a strong move to rid herself of the defender and chipped the ball over the head of Stone for her second goal of the season.
Caneen beat the clock to score her second goal of the year. Taking a pass from Brittany Emin she beat her defender down the left side and made a strong move on Stone to hit the back of the net. The ball crossed the goalline just as the horn sounded the end the game giving the Blue Devils the 2-0 victory.
The shutout was the fourth straight for Central Connecticut, the second-longest shutout streak in program history. Only a five-game streak at the end of the 1997 season is longer in the 14-year history of the program.
Herd and her defense have now allowed only one goal in her 600 minutes played on the season, good for a goals against average of 0.15 and a 3-0-3 record for the senior.
CCSU returns to action on Sunday at #13 Boston College at 1 p.m.
