HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Mike Annarumma scored a first-half goal and keeper Adam Janowski made it stand up with seven saves as Hofstra blanked No. 15 Old Dominion 1-0 Saturday in a Colonial Athletic Association contest at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium.
Hofstra improves to 11-5-1 overall and 5-4 in the CAA with the win. The Monarchs fall to 10-3-2 overall and 4-3-2 in the CAA.
Annarumma put the Pride on the board at the 36:54 mark as he dribbled into the box and sent up a shot that ODU keeper Victor Francoz stopped. But the rebound came right back to Annarumma and he capitalized on the second chance by putting a shot into the top left corner for a 1-0 lead. The goal was Annarumma’s third of the season.
The Monarchs put pressure on the Pride, taking 25 shots, including 15 in the second half. Janowski had three saves in the first 4:15 of the contest and made four more in the second half. His last save of the match came when ODU’s Jason Gaylord came in on the left side and took a tough-angle shot with 14:46 to go. Knowing he woudn’t be able to reach it with his hands, Janowski got his leg out just enough to deflect the ball with his toe and preserve the lead.
Old Dominion held a 25-10 advantage in shots and also had nine corner kicks to Hofstra’s two.
Francoz had four saves for Old Dominion.
