Sophomore Clio Tregear scored her team-best fourth goal of the
season and senior Erin Herd posted her sixth shutout of the year as
the Central Connecticut women's soccer team won its first Northeast
Conference game of the season, 1-0, at Robert Morris on Sunday.
With the win the Blue Devils improve to 4-4-4 overall and 1-1 in
league play this season. They return to action at home on Friday
at 3 p.m. hosting Mount St. Mary's.
Herd posted her sixth shutout of the season and stopped a pair of shots in the process. The Blue Devils also made one team save in the game on three Robert Morris shots on goal. Central Connecticut outshot the Colonials 9-3 in the game in shots on goal. CCSU had 23 total shots in the victory.
Tregear's goal, her fourth of the season, came early in the first half at 11:55. Teammate Lauren Salvia's shot hit the post and Tregear fired the rebound past RMU keeper Caitlin Dilal for the one goal advantage.
Central Connecticut had three corner kicks in each period and held a 6-3 edge in the game. The Blue Devils held a 23-13 advantage in total shots.
The victory is the first in conference play for the Blue Devils, who now stand at 1-1 after their conference-opening weekend in Pennsylvania. It snapped a four-game winless streak for the Blue Devils who were 0-3-1 during that span.
The Blue Devils return home for only the second time this season on Friday at 3 p.m. hosting Mount St. Mary's at 3 p.m. on the CCSU Soccer Field. They will also be home on Sunday hosting Monmouth at 1 p.m. Both game will have live stats available on CCSUBlueDevils.com.
