EASTON, Pa. - A first-half goal by Fairleigh Dicksinon’s Giselles Perez held up as the Knights handed Lafayette women’s soccer its first home loss of the season, 1-0, on Friday night at Mike Bourger ’44 Field at Oaks Stadium.

Perez’s goal came in the 22nd minute. Just outside the 18, Perez fired a shot to the far post where it eluded the reach of Lafayette freshman goalkeeper Danielle Sedillo for the early lead.

The Leopards’ best scoring chance came in the 58th minute. With the keeper away from the net, Allie Torru directed a ball at the goal only to have it knocked away by a defender. Lafayette continued to apply the offensive pressure shortly after Torru’s near miss, registering a pair of cornerkicks that were cleared by the Knights’ defense.

In the 76th minute, Perez nearly put the game away, taking a long shot that hit the crossbar.

Lafayette had its final chance in the 80th minute when Merle Liedmeier’s shot was saved by FDU goalie Sage DoVale. DoVale and Sedillo made three saves apiece on the night. Lafayette held a 6-5 advantage in shots and a 4-0 margin in cornerkicks.

Lafayette (3-2) returns to action on Sunday, hosting Temple at 1 p.m.
