MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - Carlow University women's soccer held Mount
Vernon Nazarene University scoreless for 70 minutes before the
Cougars struck to win the game, 1-0, in an NAIA matchup
The Celtics (2-2, 0-0 RSC, 1-0 USCAA) and the Cougars (3-1) each
had almost equal opportunities to score in the first half, but both
teams went into the locker room without numbers on the board.
MVNU came out in the second half with more fire, out-shooting
the Celtics 8-5.
The Cougars scored on the rebound of a blocked shot in the
70th minute for the game-winning goal.
MVNU's only loss so far this season was a 1-0 contest against
No. 6-ranked Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) College.
Malak Shuman (SR/Monroeville, Pa.) and
Alexa Schwab (JR/Conway, Pa.) posted all of
the Celtics' five shots on goal, and goalkeeper Lauren
Forte (SO/Johnstown, Pa.) stopped five shots.
