Key stats

Coach Bochette: “We’re happy to get a result at home.  Three goals scored, lots of chances created, and not many chances yielded.  Getting a shutout is important because while we’ve been scoring goals, we haven’t necessarily been keeping them out as well as we want to.  We’re really happy with the result at home, I thought it was a good performance.  It’s still one we’re going to learn from and grow from as we’re still attempting to play our very best stuff in about a week and a half.

 

Recap

 

Kicking off a four-game home stand, the University at Albany women’s soccer team hosted first-year program St. Francis Brooklyn on Tuesday, defeating the Terriers by a final score of 3-0.

 

Jada Colbert got things rolling for UAlbany, scoring her third goal of the season off a long ball from Christina Cernuto in the 15th minute to put the Danes up 1-0. 

 

UAlbany’s defense held St. Francis Brooklyn without a shot in the first half, with the Great Dane offense recording 12 shots, seven of which were on target.  Despite the disparity, UAlbany did not find the back of the net again in the first half, and entered the break leading 1-0.

 

Jasmine Colbert, making her game debut at the start of the second half, scored quickly in the 48th minute on a setup from her sister Jada.  It was the third time in history, and second game in a row, that the twins had scored in the same game, and the first time in their Great Dane careers that one had assisted on the other’s goal.

 

The Terriers finally recorded their first shot of the game in the 57th minute, when Isabelle Gollette’s strike sailed wide of the mark.  St. Francis Brooklyn finished the game with just two shots, including one on goal, compared to UAlbany’s 23 and 11 on goal.

 

Jad. Colbert drew a hard foul against the Terriers’ keeper in the box, resulting in a penalty kick for UAlbany in the 77th minute.  Gina Bracamonte successfully converted the attempt to put UAlbany up 3-0, which would prove to be the final score. 

 

Goalkeeper Sophia Chen, making her third-straight start, recorded the first full-game shutout of her career, finishing with one save on the night.

 

Up next: UAlbany hosts Cornell on Sunday, September 15 as part of a doubleheader with the men’s team.  The women’s game is scheduled to kick off at 1:00 p.m.
