Katie Goodwin took advantage of a favorable wind lofting a 30-yard shot just over the reach of Marist keeper Anna Case in the sixth minute to account for the only scoring in Siena 1-0 win over archrival Marist on Senior Day Saturday afternoon. Siena keeper Carey Winkler picked up her first career shutout making eight saves in net. The game was contested at Christian Brothers Academy in Colonie due to poor field conditions on campus.
Goodwin gained possession of the ball on the far end of the field and launched a shot that carried all the way across the net into the upper right corner for the game's only tally. It was the first goal in the sophomore's career. The two teams were evenly matched the rest of the way, with Siena holding a 15-11 edge in shots and Marist claiming a 9-8 advantage in shots on goal.
Winkler was the difference on this day, as she turned away several scoring opportunities for the Red Foxes. She showed her versatility by coming out of the net to knock away a breakaway chance by Justine Caccamo midway through the second half and then moments later she turned away a header off a corner kick to keep Marist off the board. Winkler also skied above all players on a late corner to knock the ball out of the zone.
Case also played well in the net to keep Marist in the game throughout. She made a diving save on one of Sarah Hopkins' two shots on goal, one of her seven stops in the game.
Field conditions and severe wind gusts were a factor throughout making ball control critical. The Saints controlled this aspect for much of the game, though Marist dictated tempo in the game's final 20 minutes, creating several chances.
Siena's senior class of Alicia Lackey, Corry Silon and Anna Revette was honored before the game.
Siena closes out its regular-season next weekend at Iona and Fairfield. The MAAC Championships will be contested at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex October 27-31.
