Saratoga Springs, N.Y. - A late second half goal was the difference in Farmingdale State's 1-0 women's soccer non-conference win over Skidmore College on Saturday afternoon at Wachenheim Field. With the win, the Rams improved to 2-1 overall, while the Thoroughbreds dropped to 0-3.

Senior forward Corine Magee (Mastic, N.Y.) scored the game-winner at the 76:18 mark, collecting a loose ball in the box for her first goal of the season.  Sophomore defender Andrea Kiefer (Centereach, N.Y.) played the ball into the box from the midfield for the assist.
