Sacred Heart Falls to Hawaii 2-1

Fairfield, Conn.—Jen Mulvey (Manalapan, N.J.) netted her first goal of the season in the Sacred Heart Women's Soccer Team's 2-1 loss to the University of Hawaii Friday night in the Pioneers final game of the OHANA Hotels and Resorts No Ka Oi Tournament.

The Pioneers only got two shots off in the first half against the host team, one of which being the first goal of the game. Just past the fifteen-minute mark, Mulvey intercepted a Hawaii pass. Shooting from 12 yards out, the senior found the back of the net for Sacred Heart's only goal of the game.

Both of Hawaii's goals were scored by Tiana Fujimoto. The sophomore tied the game just three minutes after Mulvey's goal, while the game-winner was scored with just four minutes left in the game. 

Sacred Heart goalkeepers Sydney Judkins (South Park, Penn.) and Talia Schwartz (Roslyn, N.Y.) each played a half, combining for eight saves.

The Pioneers return home where they will host Lafayette on Aug. 31 at 7:00 p.m. in the home opener.
