NASHUA, N.H. – The Lasell University women's soccer team scored one goal in each half Saturday evening and posted a 2-0 victory over Rivier University in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) contest under the lights at Joanne Merrill Field.
The Lasers jump to 7-10 overall and 7-4 against the GNAC while the loss moves the Raiders to 2-13-2 overall and 0-10-1 in the conference.
Lasell took the advantage in the first half when sophomore Serena Speight (Biddeford, Maine) sent a beautiful pass through to freshman Alex Lorenzo (Pawtucket, R.I.) inside the 6-yard box. Lorenzo took control and buried her shot into the back of the net to give the Lasers the lead in the 27th minute.
Speight then added an insurance goal for Lasell in the 70th minute as she was the beneficiary of a perfect pass from junior Korynne Provenzano (Stratham, N.H.) and recorded her sixth goal of the season.
Smith recorded three saves on five chances for the Raiders while Lasell sophomore keeper Angela Sanzari (North Haven, Conn.) did not see a shot on net for her clean sheet victory.
Lasell will play its final regular season game at home on Wednesday, October 30, hosting Saint Joseph's College (Maine) in a 3 p.m. kickoff. Rivier will close out the 2019 season on Wednesday night as they travel to East Boston, Mass. for a conference battle with Suffolk University.
