Coming off a win against Stonehill College, the women’s soccer team was looking to make it two in a row against Caldwell University.
The Pioneers played incredible defense, allowing two shots, neither of which were on target.
The lone goal of the match came from senior forward, Susanne Vistnes, who scored her fifth goal of the season in the 20th minute of the game. The shutout was the first of the young season for LIU.
The ladies returned home to do battle with NYIT on Saturday, Sept. 19. The first half, which saw very little scoring chances, ended up being a good one for the Pioneers as Vistnes kept up her great play and notched her second goal in as many games, which gave the Pioneers the 1-0 lead.
Looking to increase their lead in the latter half, the Pioneers did so thanks to a pass from freshman forward, Angela Careddu, to sophomore forward, Alex Lynn, who beat the keeper to double the LIU lead.
Two more late goals gave the Pioneers the convincing 4-0 win. Mark Dawson and his team return today to face-off against Wilmington University. Kickoff from Delaware is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
