After scoring six goals this past Friday in their 6-1 victory over Roberts Wesleyan College, the green and gold made it their mission to continue excellent play for the weekend.
It was only seven minutes before senior forward Alexa Niciforo got her squad on the board this Sunday afternoon versus the visiting Daemen College. Niciforo would strike again for her second goal of the afternoon in the second half off of an assist from freshman midfielder Julia Backman. Shortly after, Backman contributed to the score sheet with a goal of her own placing the ball in the back of the net for the Pioneers third and final goal of the afternoon.
The action in front of the Pioneers net was quite scarce as they dominated and outshot their Wildcat opponents by a margin of 36-2. Freshman goalkeepers Hreffie Agnarsdottir and Felicia Orderud had one save apiece on the afternoon to secure the shutout for the Pioneers.
With this weekend’s victories, the Pioneers have improved to 7-2 overall, and 3-1 in the East Coast Conference. “I’m very pleased with our performance this weekend,” said Head Coach Mark Dawson about his team’s stellar performance, including scoring nine goals and only allowing one during the last two wins. “With that being said, there’s always room for improvement and we look forward to working on getting to the next level as a team.”
Coach Dawson and the Pioneers are back in action Wednesday, Oct. 9 as they head to Lakewood, N.J. to take on Georgian Court University. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m.
