Sophomore forward Amanda Chiusano (Bellport, NY) notched a hat-trick, the third of her career, to lead the Rams over NJCU in a Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference women's soccer game. Despite trailing 16-11 in shots, Farmingdale was able to find the holes and improved their record to 4-11-1 overall, 1-4-1 in the WIAC.

Chiusano's first goal came at 5:15 in the first half after she settled a pass from junior defender Victoria Blank (Levittown, NY) and took on the goalie close range. Chiusano made it 2-0 at the 58:17 mark, after a pass from sophomore midfielder Kristina Famularo (East Meadow, NY) created another one-on-one in the box. Chiusano's final goal came at 70:56 as she dribbled past several NJCU defenders to score her third one-on-one goal of the day. Rams goalie Pam Baione (Farmingdale, NY) totaled 9 saves in her third shutout of the season.

Farmingdale will return to action on Saturday, October 30th at home against SUNY New Paltz at 1pm. The Rams will then travel to Stevens Institute on Wednesday, November 3rd for the first round of the Skyline Playoffs.
