GVSU nips Quincy
to advance to DII quarters

Charlie Socia scored her fifth game-winning goal of the season.

DULUTH, Minn. -- For the fifth consecutive season, Grand Valley State is moving on to the quarterfinals of the Division II Women's Soccer Championship.

The top-seeded Lakers ousted Quincy 2-1 on Friday to extend their postseason run.

Freshman midfielder Marti Corby handled a pass from junior forward Jenny Shaba roughly seven yards from the goal and blasted the ball past keeper Jodie Chapie to give GVSU the lead midway through the first half. Freshman forward Kendra Stauffer also earned an assist on Corby's 10th goal of the season.

Quincy would not stay down for long, though. In the 27th minute, Jaclyn Mastroianni's corner kick found the head of Ashley Burton, who became just the second player all season to score on the Lakers.

GVSU's offense remained quiet for the remainder of the opening frame and managed just one shot.

The Lakers wasted no time applying pressure on the Hawks after halftime.

Junior midfielder Charlie Socia scored her seventh goal of the campaign to put GVSU back on top just over six minutes into the second half. A corner kick by senior defender Tayler Ward set up Socia in the box for what turned out to be the game-winning tally.

It is the fifth time this season Socia has recorded the game-winner.

After being outshot 3-1 in the first 45 minutes of regulation, the Lakers did not allow the Hawks to put a single shot on goal in the closing half.
