Emory stays perfect with shutout
Roundup: No. 3 William Smith, No. 5 Williams earn 1-0 victories
ROANOKE, Va. -- No. 4 Emory completed its weekend sweep of the Roanoke Invitational, defeating Lynchburg 1-0 on Sunday to remain undefeated on the season.
Emory freshman Emily Feldman scored the lone goal in the contest in the 48th minute, striking on a shot from 20 yards out that hit off the right post and into the back of the net. The score was the third of the season for Feldman, who now leads all Emory players in goals and points.
Meanwhile, the Eagles defense was stellar again, holding Lynchburg without a shot on goal during the match, and limiting the Hornets to just three total shots. Lynchburg was able to take just one shot in the second half against Emory's defense.
No. 3 William Smith 1, Cortland 0
GENEVA, N.Y. -- Third-ranked William Smith College picked up the only goal of the game when Krista Longo scored in the second period Sunday. The Herrons remained undefeated with a 4-0-1 record following the victory.
Longo came off the bench to post the long score in the 71st minute off a pass from Kelsey Hill. The tally was Longo's first of the season, and it came off Hill's first assist. Amanda Davis stopped all three shots she faced in goal while Pam Monnier made nine saves on 16 shots, but allowed the game-winner.
No. 5 Williams 1, Wheaton 0
NORTON, Ma. -- Led for the second day in a row by a goal from Brett Eisenhart, Williams won its second consecutive game on Sunday 1-0 against Wheaton. The Ephs handed the Lyons their first loss of the year.
The first half passed uneventfully for both teams. The Ephs started off with two looks at the net by Caitlyn Clark, but Wheaton keeper Lindsay Leddy was able to scoop them up. Chloe Kuh and Hana Tomozawa also had shots in the opening 45 minutes, but the Ephs and the Lyons entered the half with no change on the scoreboard.
In the second half, Clark crossed the ball from the right side to Eisenhart in close, and the attacker was able to put the ball around Leddy to give the Ephs the only goal they would need. Clark and Eisenhart connected yesterday as well on the Ephs' first goal of the season.
