Coming off a loss on Wednesday at the hands of Merrimack College, the Pioneers came out firing against Assumption College on Saturday, Sept. 12, outshooting their opponents 23-2. Even though they tallied more shots, the Pioneers found themselves down a goal near halftime.
Senior forward Per Forgaard changed that when he found senior midfielder Matias Ruiz who scored the equalizing goal. Keeping with the theme of day, the Pioneers got more scoring chances and cashed in when freshman forward Charlie Ledula gave LIU the 2-1 advantage. That score stood for the rest of the match as the Pioneers earned their second win of the young season. They return to the field Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 3 p.m. against Wilmington University.
