GARDEN CITY, New York (October 13, 2018) – The Stonehill College women's soccer team, ranked No. 8 in the United Soccer Coaches' East Regional Poll, recorded their sixth shutout of the season and fourth-straight victory with a 1-0 overtime victory over Northeast-10 Conference rival Adelphi University (8-3-1, 7-3 NE10), who is ranked No. 4 in the United Soccer Coaches' East Regional poll on Saturday afternoon at Motamed Field.

Stonehill (10-4-0, 7-4-0 NE10) saw Caitlin Regan with her second goal of the season and second game-winning goal, while Camryn Thompson tallied her sixth assist of the season. Kaitlin Brown registered seven saves in her eighth shutout of her career.

Adelphi quickly tested Stonehill's defense in the first three minutes of the game, as the Panthers tallied the first corner kick of the game and Madison Raposo booted one on goal for Brown's first save. Stonehill took the ball down to their attacking third following and Thompson sent one wide of the posts in the fifth minute of play. The Panthers registered three shots in a three-minute span, where only one was on net, and Stonehill responded with back-to-back corner kicks, but were unable to connect on a shot. Adelphi closed the final minute of the first half with back-to-back corner kicks recording their third and fourth of the game.

Thompson tallies her sixth assist of the season for her 20th point of the season 

Both teams once again acted quickly at the start of the second half with one shot from the Panthers that went wide and two from Stonehill, that was first saved by Adelphi and the second just sailing wide. In the 66th minute, Adelphi had a clear opportunity to put a tally on the board, but Brown went one-on-one with Kerianne Scorce who booted the ball near the post for a diving save by the junior keeper. In the 71st minute, Stonehill tallied another series of shots, one that was blocked by the Panther's defense and the other was fronted by Adelphi's goalkeeper Krista Aliscio. Prior to regulation, Adelphi struck three more shots, while Stonehill only saw one as the Panthers were outshooting the Skyhawks 17-13.

With a foul called on Adelphi, Stonehill saw an opportunity to take and keep the ball in their attacking third, and after a shot saved by Aliscio, Thompson launched the Skyhawks' seventh corner kick of the game that connected with Regan's chest to get the ball into the cage for the golden goal, 1-0, at 94:11.
