PHILADELPHIA – A second-half winner by freshman Maryam Huseini (Skien, Norway/Telemark School) and another solid defensive performance helped the La Salle women’s soccer team hold off Lehigh 1-0 on Sunday afternoon at McCarthy Stadium.
“Things got a bit nervy for us towards the end, but we found another way to win,” said head coach Paul Royal.
Huseini caught Lehigh keeper Ashley Blanks off her line in the 64th minute and chipped one just under the cross bar to put La Salle on top 1-0. The goal was the second of Huseini’s career and her first game-winner.
Melissa Sanger (Mullica Hill, N.J./Kingsway Regional) needed just one save in net to preserve her ninth shutout of the season as she continues to add to her career and single-season records at La Salle.
