BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Siena College women's soccer team held Canisius College scoreless, capturing a 3-0 shut-out victory at the Demske Sports Complex in MAAC soccer action Friday evening. With the win the Saints improve to 4-9-3, 4-3-1 in the league while the Griffs fall to 2-12-1 overall, 2-5-1 in the MAAC.
The Saints struck early in the first half, scoring their first goal in the 14th minute off the foot of Nicole Orlandella, her third of the season. Sarah Shumway passed the ball from the right-side and Orlandella's high, arcing shot from 35 yards out dropping in over Canisius goalie Christine Moran's head and found the back of the net.
Siena would add to their lead in the 21st minute as Shumway scored her fifth of the year on a pass from Erin Beam. Beam sealed the Siena victory with a goal of her own from Lauren Mulligan with 8:52 remaining in the second half.
Moran posted five saves, all in the first half, for the Griffs in the loss. Siena's Noel Cox recorded five saves, earning the shutout win.
