Farmingdale State - 1, Sage - 0


Farmingdale, N.Y. - The Farmingdale State women's soccer team improved to 9-8, 7-0 in the Skyline with a 1-0 Conference victory over Sage (6-6-2, 4-3-1) today in Farmingdale, N.Y. After a scoreless first half, the Rams would score the eventual game-winner in the 60th minute of play.

Freshman midfielder Shannon Reardon (North Babylon, N.Y./North Babylon) sent a ball through the middle and up to freshman forward Katrina Cerverizzo (Center Moriches, N.Y./Center Moriches), who raced past her defender and launched a shot from 12 yards out. The shot hit off the diving Sage goalies hands and off the inside post into the back of the net, for a 1-0 Farmingdale State lead.

The Rams controlled the game for the most part, leading 10-5 in shots and 5-0 on corner kicks. Freshman goalkeeper Amanda Maass (Mastic Beach, N.Y./William Floyd) made four saves for her sixth shutout of the season, as Farmingdale picks up their seventh straight victory.
