Three Blue Devils scored on the afternoon but the Central
Connecticut women's soccer team played to its fourth draw of the
season on the road at Hofstra on Sunday. CCSU is now 3-2-4 on the
season following a 3-3 tie against the Pride on Long Island. Leah
Bromley and Clio
Tregear all scored for the Blue Devils in the game.
Senior goalkeeper Erin Herd matched her season-high making nine saves in goal for the Blue Devils in the draw. The Pride outshot the Blue Devils 22-9 in the game including a 12-7 edge in shots on goal.
Central Connecticut took the early 1-0 lead just 5:51 into the match when Blayney scored her third goal of the season. She took control of the ball off an attempted clear and shot from the top of the box beating Pride goalkeeper Krystal Robens just inside the right post.
Hofstra wasted little time evening the game at one goal a piece when Diane Caldwell beat Herd inside the left post at 9:06. The Pride took their first lead of the game at 27:58 when Edel Malone beat Herd in the left corner from 20 yards out. Herd, who had allowed only two goals all season, allowed more than one goal in a game for the first time all season.
The Blue Devils tied it just before the half on Bromley's first goal of the season. She took a direct kick from midfield and when Robens missed a punch at the ball it tied the score at 2-2 with only one second on the clock before halftime.
Hofstra took the lead again at 71:35 on a goal from Courtney Breen, making it 3-2.
The Blue Devils tied the score just under five minutes later when Tregear scored her third goal of the season. Brittany Emin made a long run up the left side and sent a cross into the middle. Tregear crashed in from the opposite side with a defender on her shoulder, and popped the ball up in the air with the outside of her foot. It spun over the head of Robens and into the upper right corner of the goal to knot the score at three.
Central Connecticut has another week off before playing its next game on Sunday, September 28 at Army beginning at 1 p.m.
