Dogmanits Nets Late Game Winner For Dramatic 2-1 Victory Over The Mount
Leigh Dogmanits (Walnutport, PA) found the back of the net with 33 seconds remaining in regulation as the Pioneer women's soccer team came away with a 2-1 road victory at Mount St. Mary's. Heather Quevillion (Dayville, CT) netted her third marker of 2010 early in the second half to bring SHU level at 1-1 after falling behind in the opening stanza. Freshman Alyssa Brandofino (East Northport, NY) earned an assist on each of the SHU goals bringing her season total to a team-high five.
Mount St. Mary's (3-9-3, 0-5-1 NEC) jumped out to a 1-0 lead with 9:18 remaining in the first half on a marker from Sadie Winship. The play was set up by a long pass from Andrea Bujacich and Winship beat the SHU keeper for her second goal of the year. Meghan Reichelt (Selden, NY) finished the game with three saves to pick up the victory in net for the Pioneers.
Sacred Heart (7-4-3, 3-1-1 NEC) would equalize the game just over five minutes into the second period on a set piece play from a corner kick. Brandofino swung a high ball into the center of the box that Quevillion deposited into the twine to make to level the match. The Pioneers earned the game winner on another rehearsed play, this time coming from a free kick. Brandofino again provided the service and the veteran Dogmanits punched in her first game winner of the season to propel SHU to the 2-1 triumph over the Mountaineers.
The victory moves the Pioneers to 3-1-2 in the last six contests and 2-2-1 on the road this season. Sacred Heart continues its road trip with another NEC game, taking on Monmouth at 1:00 pm Sunday afternoon.
