Offensive Surge Continues for Siena in 3-2 Win Over Marist
Oct. 15, 2004
The Siena women's soccer team continued its impressive offensive exploits on Friday evening as they defeated Marist 3-2 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Junior Corry Silon and freshman midfielder Susie Blaidsell notched their first goal of the season.
Both teams spent the first quarter of the game trading possessions and shots until Siena's Corry Silon took matters into her own hands, firing a rocket from 25 yards out to give the Saints the 1-0 lead. The Red Foxes maintained control of the ball for much of the remaining time in the half, until Siena's Susie Blaisdell capitalized on a rebounded shot, with an assist from Kara Sefcik. The Saints took a 2-0 lead into the half after scoring with just 16 seconds remaining in the first.
In the second half, Marist came back as Dziedzic netted her first goal of the season at 61:06 off a corner kick from freshman Kristina Anderson. Jenna McCrory got in on the scoring with a solo shot of her own just two minutes later to knot the score at two all. The two teams traded possessions and fouls on the rainy pitch until Siena's Kristen Turner capitalized on one of her four shots on the day for the winning goal. Turner slipped one past Marist rookie goalkeeper Liz Herber, with just five minutes remaining in play. The goal is Turners' third on the season. Amy Loughridge had the assist on the game-winner.
The Red Foxes could not mount a comeback and the Saints took the 3-2 victory, improving their record to 7-7 (4-1 MAAC) extending their three game win streak. With the loss, Marist fell to 3-12 (1-4 MAAC).
Goalie Noel Cox snatched seven saves, while Herber collected four.
The Saints return to action on Friday, Oct. 22, as they welcome Iona. Game time is set for 3 p.m.
