PSU Women’s Soccer falls to LEC champs ECSU

Green scores for Panthers in regular season finale

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Eastern Connecticut State University clinched the Little East Conference women’s soccer regular season championship and an undefeated regular season Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 victory over Plymouth State University on PSU’s Senior Day at Panther Field.

            The visiting Warriors, who are ranked No. 1 in New England and No. 10 nationally, finished with a 19-4 advantage in shots for the game, but needed a pair of goals by sophomore Taylor Buchanan (Ellington, Conn.) and freshman Nicole Leonard (Rutherford, N.J.) three minutes apart early in the second half to hold off the upset-minded Panthers.  Eastern completes the regular season at 15-0-3 overall and 6-0-1 in conference play to capture its first LEC title since sharing the crown with Western Connecticut in 2008.  PSU ends the regular season with a 7-10 overall record and 2-5 in Little East matches, finishing in a three-way tie for fifth place in the conference standings.
