PSU Women’s Soccer rolls past Lyndon State

            LYNDONVILLE, Vt. - Sophomore Stacy DiSabato (Manchester, N.H./Central) scored three goals Tuesday afternoon to lead the Plymouth State University women's soccer team to a 5-1 victory over Lyndon State College in non-conference action.

            The Panthers took a 1-0 lead less than two minutes into the game when a LSC midfielder inadvertently kicked the ball into her own net. Less than 12 minutes later, DiSabato tallied her first goal to up the PSU lead to 2-0. Sophomore Gianna Minervini (Point Pleasant, N.J.) assisted on the play.

            The Hornets cut the deficit to 2-1 on Shauna Buck's goal, assisted by Kathy Kline, with 7:25 to play before intermission, but the Panthers blew the game open midway through the second half with three unanswered goals.

            Minervini scored off a pass from sophomore Lauren Lavery (Nashua, N.H.) at 68:55.  DiSabato extended the Plymouth State advantage to 4-1 with a tally at 74:24, with an assist from senior Jaimee Coombs (Peabody, Mass.). DiSabato closed out her hat trick with 16:08 left to play, off a feed from freshman Amanda Bogdanowicz (Norwalk, Conn.) to send the Panthers on to their seventh win of the season.

            PSU goalies Ashley Riberdy (Manchester, N.H./Memorial) and freshman Jill Collins (Meredith, N.H.) combined to make four saves in the contest while LSC keeper Kari Johnson had seven stops.

            Plymouth State (7-8-0) wraps up the regular season this Saturday on Senior Day at Panther Field with a 4:00 p.m. Little East Conference match-up against UMass Boston.  Lyndon State concludes its regular season Sunday at home against Green Mountain College (12:00 p.m.)
