LAST WEEK'S RESULTS:

Tuesday, Sept. 16: Hofstra 6, Qunnipiac 1 Sunday, Sept. 21: Hofstra 2, Pittsburgh 0

THIS WEEK'S GAMES:

Friday, Sept. 26: at Delaware, 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28: at Towson, 1 p.m.

Last Game Recap (Hofstra 2, Pittsburgh 0): Senior midfielder Marisa Pistone (Hicksville, NY) scored directly off a corner kick in the first half and sophomore forward Ashley Shaban (Oakland, NJ) scored her first goal with the Pride in the second half as Hofstra defeated Pittsburgh 2-0 on Sunday. Hofstra was in control throughout, as junior goalkeeper Rebecca Wachsberger (East Meadow, NY) needed to make only one save to get her fourth shutout of the season in seven contests. The Pride held a 15-3 advantage in shots for the game, with the only Panther shot on goal a 30-yarder that Wachsberger saved on two hops early in the second half. The Pride would get all the offense it would need in the game's 10th minute as Pistone took a corner kick from the right sideline. She bent the ball around to the far post, over the head of Pittsburgh goalkeeper Jamie Pelusi and on target. A Panther defender tried to clear it off the line, but it deflected into the back of the net for a Pride goal. Pittsburgh had one good chance to even the score n the 30th minute as reserve forward Kristina Francois got to a loose ball from 25 yards out and one- timed a hard shot that barely eluded the dive of Wachsberger. However, the ball deflected off the outside of the left post and out of bounds for a goal kick. Hofstra then tacked on an insurance goal early in the second half, as sophomore midfielder Nina Nanavrakis (Rockville Centre, NY) got to a ball near the left end line and sent a cross into the middle of the penalty area. Senior back Dolores Deasley (Drumkeen, Ireland) flicked a header towards the front of the net, where Shaban was able to tap it in from three yards out to extend the lead to 2-0. It was Shaban's first goal at Hofstra after transferring from Rutgers during the offseason. Hofstra's defense allowed only three shot attempts, one game after holding Quinnipiac to only one shot (on a penalty kick) in its 6-1 win on Tuesday.
