Farmingdale State gets by Western, 1-0 in non-league action


DANBURY, CT (Sep. 11) —  Corine Magee (Pine Bush, NY) scored the game's only goal, in the 63rd minute, and Farmingdale State College held on to defeat host Western Connecticut State University, 1-0 at The WAC on Tuesday night.

Magee was the recipient of a pair of clean unchallenged passes beginning with Theresa Martorano's (Coram, NY) at midfield and capping off with a direct pass from Christina Merrill (Levittown, NY) from the right side of the box. Magee was left open from 10 yards out and deposited her second goal of the season.

The Rams, 3-2, received a fine performance in goal from freshman Breanna Blair (Littleton, CO) as she made four saves for the winners.

Caitlin Avery (East Hampton, CT) also turned away four shots but was left helpless by her defense with 27:39 remaining in the contest.

Western out shot Farmingdale, 11-8, but several chances sailed past the target.

The Colonials, 2-1-1, will play host to Wentworth Institute of Technology this Thursday, September 13. Game time is slated for 7 p.m. The game with the Leopards is Western's final non-conference game before Little East Conference play opens at The WAC on Saturday when the Colonials host University of Southern Maine.
