Box Score

Parkland, WA (9/9/11) – Despite out-shooting Pacific 16-7 and having the better run of play throughout the contest, the Montclair State women’s soccer team suffered its first loss of the season as the Red Hawks were clipped by the Boxers, 1-0 at Pacific Lutheran University on Friday.

Freshman goalkeeper Gina Policastro (East Brunswick, NJ / East Brunswick) stopped four shots for the Red Hawks, who fell to 3-1 on the season.

An evenly-played first half, each team recorded four shots however none would get past Policastro or Boxer goalkeeper Brittany Hartmann.

In the second half, Montclair State outshot Pacific 12-3. Policastro came up with a huge save as she thwarted a 1-on-1 attempt by Tianna Homad making a diving save to her right. But nine minutes later, the Boxers put the lone goal up on the board as Jordan Bodily scored off an assist from Bryanna DeLima.

Montclair State returns to Pacific Lutheran on Saturday, September 10 as they face the Lutes of PLU beginning at 4:00 pm.
