PSU Women’s Soccer shut out by Worcester State

LaBroad makes eight saves for Panthers

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Sophomore Laura Maunsell scored her first goal of the season Tuesday afternoon, leading Worcester State University to a 1-0 victory over Plymouth State University in a non-conference women's soccer match-up at Panther Field.

            Maunsell scored the eventual game-winner in the 30th minute, driving home her own rebound to put the Lancers up 1-0. Senior keeper Angiezaka Sychtysz needed to make just one save for the Lancers for her third shutout of the season as Worcester State improved to 4-2-1 and extends its win streak to four.  The Panthers fall to 3-3.

            PSU senior goalkeeper Angelina LaBroad had a busy day in goal, collecting eight saves, including stops on three consecutive Lancer corner kicks in the second half.

            Worcester State defenders senior Nikki Scott and sophomores Carolyn Hassett and Makayla Moran limited the Panthers to five shots overall and just one shot on goal. Sophomore midfielder Laura Davis had the lone shot on goal for PSU.

            Both teams are on the road next as Worcester State travels to Framingham State on Friday and Plymouth State visits Eastern Connecticut in a Little East Conference game on Saturday.
