The Central Connecticut women's soccer team dropped to 4-6
overall and 0-1 in Northeast Conference play with a 4-2 loss on the
road at Quinnipiac on Sunday. Senior Beth
Lloyd scored both goals in the game for the Blue Devils, and
now leads the team with 10 goals on the season. It was her third
multi-goal game of the season. Central returns to action on Friday

The game was tied 2-2 at the half, after a pair of goals from Lloyd for the Blue Devils.
Down 1-0, Lloyd scored her first goal of the game in the eighth minute to tie the score at 1-1. She followed that up with her second goal, in the 19th minute of the first half, to make it 2-1 in favor of Central. She took a pass from senior Abby Graham to score the go-ahead goal.
Quinnipiac tied it up just before the half on a goal from Beck Kiting.
