Women's Soccer Captures First Win of the Season
Sept. 11, 2003
Freshman Kristen Turner tallied a goal in the 79th minute to lead the Siena Saints to a 2-1 come-from- behind win over the Temple Owls at Temple Stadium. It marked the first game in nearly 10 years that Seamus McWilliams was not on the sidelines for Temple. The Owls all-time winningest coach resigned for personal reasons late Tuesday.
After a scoreless first half, Temple got on the board first with a goal by sophomore Samantha Vietry in the 60th minute. Junior Courtney Eaton assisted on the play. Less than a minute later Siena answered as junior Erin DeMatteo finished a play in front of the net off a pass from fellow junior Katie Ferry. Turner then tallied the game-winner off an assist from junior Jen Kies to give Siena its first win of the season against two defeats.
Temple junior goalkeeper Jackie Mauro (Philadelphia/Archbishop Ryan) had four saves on the day while junior Noel Cox also recorded four saves for Siena.
Siena will hit the road this weekend to take part in the Army Tournament where there will face Lafayette in the first game on Friday, September 12. Game-time is scheduled for 5:00 p.m.
