Women's Soccer Falls on the Road at Long Island on Sunday, 1-0
The Central Connecticut women's soccer team had its four-game
win streak snapped with a 1-0 loss on the road at Long Island on
Sunday. The Blue Devils are now 7-5-4 overall and 4-2 in Northeast
Conference play this season. CCSU returns to action at home on
Friday hosting Sacred Heart at 3 p.m.
Junior goalkeeper Caity Casey made four saves in goal for the Blue Devils in the loss, but it was not enough as CCSU lost for the first time since October 3. After beginning the NEC season with a loss at St. Francis (PA) the Blue Devils had won four straight conference games prior to Sunday.
The Blue Devils outshot the Blackbirds 11-8 in the game but the home team had a 5-4 edge in shots on goal, including the only score of the game.
Long Island's Kayleigh Morgan scored the only goal of the game at 25:18 in the first half. She headed the ball by Casey on a first half corner kick, taken by LIU's Nicole Allen. Long Island attempted five corner kicks in the game while the Blue Devils did not have any.
The Blue Devils return home for their final two regular season home games of 2008 this week. They host Sacred Heart on Friday at 3 p.m. and will celebrate Senior Day on Sunday at 1 p.m. hosting Fairleigh Dickinson.
