Caitlin Cahalan and Coreena D'Alfonso each scored as Siena Women's Soccer shut out Saint Peter's 2-0 Friday afternoon in Jersey City, N.J. The win marked the Saints' 14th straight over the Peacocks whom they've outscored 60-6 over that time.
Cahalan struck for the decisive tally - the seventh game-winning goal of her career - in the 32nd minute. The senior striker fired home a free kick from 30 yards out for her team-leading sixth goal of the season.
D'Alfonso netted her second career goal in the 77th minute, finishing a pass from Katie Zambrano to give the Saints (6-8-1, 2-3-1) some breathing room.
Siena out-shot Saint Peter's (1-15, 0-6) 18-13 and both teams took three corners. Taylor Booth made six saves in earning her fourth shutout of the season for the Saints, while Caitlin Hoffer stopped 12 shots for the Peacocks.
The Saints will look to even their conference record and continue to climb the MAAC Standings Sunday morning when they battle Manhattan. Early kickoff is set for 10 a.m. from Riverdale, N.Y.
