Box Score

EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette women's soccer team fell to Fairleigh Dickinson 3-0 on Sunday afternoon at Mike Bourger '44 Field at Oaks Stadium. Senior goalkeeper Mary Kate Erdman grabbed 10 saves on the afternoon in her return from injury.

After a scoreless first half, the Knights got on the board in the 59th minute when Tonya Hipsman took a Chrissy Niven pass and beat Erdman on the far post. Fairleigh Dickinson added two insurance goals late in the game from Emma Yamada to tally the 3-0 victory.

The Leopards numerous chances again, registering 10 shots on the afternoon. Lafayette appeared as though it was going to jump out early when freshman Olivia Hawes found Mackenzie Moore on the right side. The give-and-go went back to Hawes who sent a shot to the left far post of the goal, just wide and also just out of the reach of a streaking Alisa Chapla.

A 70th minute run from Caroline Tuttle found Kassidy Keller inside the Knight six-yard box. Keller's one-touch sailed over the net, as Fairleigh Dickinson maintained its 1-0 advantage.

Minutes later, a pattern was started by senior Alison Hingley. Hingley found classmate Kelly Koreyva in the middle of the field, just beyond the 18-yard box. Koreyva turned and placed the ball to freshman Mackenzie Moore, who took a touch and drilled a shot on goal, forcing Knight goalkeeper Rachel Derrico to make a sprawling save.



Head coach Mick Statham will take the next week to prepare for the opening of Patriot League play, five days from now at Army.

Lafayette returns to action next Friday, Oct. 5 when the team travels to Army for the Patriot League opener.
