Three Huskies score against Marist
STORRS, Conn. – Connecticut had three different players score in its 3-1 victory over Marist on Wednesday night at Morrone Stadium.
UConn improves to 3-2-1 and Marist falls to 3-2
Senior forward Danielle Schulmann once again lifted the Huskies as she registered her fourth goal and fourth and fifth assists of the season. The Saddle River, N.J. native now leads the Huskies with 13 points.
UConn recorded its first goal of the evening in the 21st minute when Schulmann shot the ball from close range on the right side of the box after grabbing a deflected pass to give the Huskies a 1-0 advantage.
It didn’t take long for Schulmann to create another scoring opportunity for Connecticut as she chipped the ball over Marist defenders up field to a waiting Riley Houle who strategically rifled the ball by Marist keeper Andrea Wicks to push the UConn lead to 2-0 in the 23r dminute.
The Red Foxes had their best scoring opportunity of the first half but freshman keeper Allison Saucier made a diving stop when Rycke Guiney took a shot from six yards out after a perfectly placed cross by Alycia Cartica.
Guiney’s missed opportunity did not slow her down and she scored in the 76th minute from a corner kick to make the score to 2-1.
Schulmann’s constant movement paid off for the third time when she crossed the ball to freshman forward Stephanie Ribeiro who drilled the ball from 18 yards out to set the final score at 3-1 in Connecticut’s favor.
Saucier moved to 3-2-1 on the season after registering six saves, while Wicks fell to 3-2 following a seven save effort.
The Huskies begin a five-game road stint on Sunday, September 9 when they travel to intrastate rival Central Connecticut for a 1 p.m. matchup.
