UNH women's soccer falls to Providence, 2-1

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Maura Robertson scored two goals, including one in the 83rd minute, to lead the Providence College women's soccer team to Sunday afternoon's 2-1 victory against the University of New Hampshire.

UNH, which entered the match with a three-game winning streak, is now 6-4-0 overall while PC is 6-4-2.

The Wildcats took a 1-0 lead at 10:54 when freshman Jackie Wishoski (Malden, Mass.) controlled a pass from junior Ana Tobon (Philadelphia, Pa.) and beat PC goalkeeper Caroline Haines with a high shot.

It appeared as if New Hampshire, which controlled play through the first half and registered a 7-3 shot advantage through 45 minutes, would take that one-goal lead into halftime, but Robertson scored an unassisted goal in the 43rd minute to tie the game, 1-1. Robertson struck again late in a half - this time with 7:14 remaining in regulation - to give the Friars a 2-1 lead.

UNH senior captain Kristen Ouellette (Weatogue, Conn.) started in goal and made one save before exiting the game at the half. Liz MacKay (Scituate, Mass.) played the final 45 minutes and stopped two shots. Haines finished with four saves for PC.

New Hampshire returns to action Oct. 11 at Northeastern University. The next Wildcat home game is Oct. 15 vs. Holy Cross. Game time at Lewis Fields is 3:30 p.m.
