Thursday, Oct. 15, was a career day for senior forward Susanne Vistnes, who broke LIU Post’s program record for most career points.
The Pioneers welcomed Philadelphia University to the Pioneer Soccer Park, and Vistnes wasted no time getting the scoring started. She received a pass from sophomore midfielder Klara Berggren and notched her 13th goal of the season, and, in the process, broke the LIU Post record for most points in a collegiate career. Later in the second half Vistnes provided the assist on a goal from freshman forward Hillevi Eklow.
Another late Pioneer goal gave LIU the commanding 3-0 win.
A few days later, the Pioneers were back in action against Mercy College. Although they didn’t score three times like on Thursday, they did notch the first goal, and that was enough for the victory. Freshman forward Andrea Huntzinger teamed up with Berggren and after a few passes, Huntzinger found the back of the net.
The Pioneers return to the pitch on Friday, Oct. 23, when the host Roberts Wesleyan College. Start time is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
