WORCESTER, Mass. – Janie Schlauder broke a scoreless tie with 3:45 left in regulation as the Holy Cross women's soccer team fell to Manhattan, 1-0, on Tuesday evening in non-conference action at the Linda Johnson Smith Soccer Stadium. With the loss, the Crusaders fall to 0-3, while the Jaspers improve to 2-2.
At 57:50, Skonieczny went rushing out of the net and made a save on a breakaway by sophomore Annie Galvin (Attleboro, Mass.) and then Galvin was able to send the rebound to the net but it was cleared off the line by Manhattan's Shannon Barry. Then at 81:30, sophomore Megan Greineder (East Greenwich, R.I.) blasted a shot that just went over the upper right corner of the goal. Manhattan netted the only goal of the game when Martine Diamond sent a crossing pass that was deflected and then bounced to Schlauder who found the back of the net for her team-best second goal of the season. The Crusaders were unable to score the equalizer for the 1-0 final.
Holy Cross returns to action on Sunday, Sept. 8, when it travels to Quinnipiac for a 1:00 p.m. kickoff.
