MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — Southern Vermont College went into Morrisville State College and defeated the Mustangs 2-0 Wednesday afternoon in non-conference women's soccer action at Drake Field.
The Mountaineers scored both of their goals in the first half, and they were able to keep the hosts off the scoreboard through the entire match to chalk up the team's fourth-straight shutout.
SVC—which started the season at 0-2—has now won four in-a-row and five of its last six games to sit at 6-4 overall on the year.
Mountaineer freshman Jayne Wierzbicki — who was named the latest NECC Rookie of the Week on Monday—tallied her third-consecutive game-winning goal with a strike in the 25th minute. Naya Cerda then added an insurance tally as she converted on a penalty kick with 7:40 left to go in the first half.
Senior keeper Melissa Mascari chalked up her 20th career clean sheet with the win (6-4)—being aided by a strong performance from the SVC defense which allowed just four shots on net throughout the day. Mascari and the Mountaineers have not allowed a goal in their last 405 minutes of action, and they are currently posting a 0.79 goals against average for the season.
