The Saint Rose women’s soccer team secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Franklin Pierce on Saturday, in a clash between two ranked Northeast-10 rivals.
Graduate midfielder Elina Seppala scored the only goal of the game from a penalty kick, as the No. 3-ranked Golden Knights avenged their defeat to the No. 14-ranked Ravens from last season.
Determined to find an equalizer, Franklin Pierce relentlessly pressured the Golden Knights’ defense throughout the final 20 minutes of the game. However, Bozic stood firm in goal and produced a solid display, securing a clean sheet with four saves.
“Once the game starts, it’s just a game,” remarked Bozic. “I didn’t pay too much attention to external factors.”
“Pia performed exceptionally well in goal,” praised Gutheil.
This victory is yet another testament to the team’s daily hard work paying off.
“Our last five games have been challenging, and as we continue to win and progress, we have so much more room to grow and understand each other,” said Brown. “But we have a solid foundation this year, and I think we’re in for a great season.”
Next up for Saint Rose are two home games against NE-10 opponents at the Plumeri Sports Complex in Albany. They will face Saint Michael’s on Tuesday at 6 p.m., followed by a match against Southern Connecticut State on Saturday at 1 p.m.
“After last night’s game and our previous matches, we know that we can’t underestimate anyone this year,” warned Mia Klammer. “Especially as returning players, we understand that we can’t overlook Saint Michael’s. We have to approach the game with the same intensity and energy we had against Franklin yesterday.”
