HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Lucy Porter scored a goal off a corner kick in the 71st minute to lift the Hofstra University women past Stony Brook University, 1-0, Sunday afternoon at Hofstra Soccer Stadium.
The win gave Hofstra another victory in “The Long Island Rivalry.” The Pride is 3-0 against the Seawolves this fall with wins in volleyball, men’s soccer and women’s soccer. The women’s soccer team moved to 11-3 all-time vs. Stony Brook and has won nine consecutive matches in the series.
Hofstra moved to 6-3 with its second win in as many games. Stony Brook (4-5) saw a two-game winning streak halted.
The Pride dominated play, holding a 17-6 advantage in shots and a 9-4 edge in corner kicks. But Hofstra could not capitalize until a corner kick attempt at 70:22. Jordan Littleboy drove the kick to the far post where Madeline Anderson flicked it to Porter, who headed in her second goal this season.
Goalkeeper Ashley Wilson, who came on to start the second half for the Pride, picked up the win after making one save in the final 45 minutes. Jenna Borresen started and had two saves in the opening half.
Stony Brook keeper Sofia Manner made four saves.
The game marked the final non-conference matchup for the Pride, which is back in action Thursday night when it hosts Towson to start Colonial Athletic Association play.
