BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – A pair of second-half goals lifted the Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) women's soccer team (7-7-1, 7-4-1 CACC) over the Concordia Clippers (1-12-0, 1-10-0 CACC) on the road in Bronxville, N.Y. as the Rams posted a 2-0 shutout victory.
The win closes the Rams' regular season CACC play. With a conference tournament spot on lock, the Rams will be on the road for the CACC quarterfinals but will have to wait for the remaining CACC teams to finish their conference slates to determine exact seedings and opponents.
After starting 2-4 in conference play, the women went 5-0-1 to close their CACC schedule.
The squad has notched three-straight conference shutouts and have scored 15 unanswered goals against CACC foes dating back to Saturday, Oct. 6. Since a 3-3 2OT draw against Caldwell on Oct. 6, the Rams defeated Post, 7-0, Chestnut Hill, 5-0, and Concordia today, 2-0. In October, the team has four shutout wins and one 2OT draw.
Jefferson sophomore goalkeeper Danielle Samson (W, 4-0-0) recorded her second individual shutout of the year as she made four stops on the day.
A few minutes later, Jefferson stretched its lead to 2-0 in the 72nd minute when freshman Sydney Williams drove the ball down the field before beating the Concordia keeper. It came as the second goal on her young career.
Jefferson mustered 21 shots to Concordia's nine. The Rams also earned six corners and only committed eight fouls in a disciplined defensive effort.
Jefferson Women's Soccer now hosts LIU Post on Monday, Oct. 22 from Ravenhill Field at 3 p.m. in a nonconference tilt.
