Buffalo, N.Y. (Aug. 28, 2016) – Canisius College took the lead in the 12th minute and never looked back as they upended the Robert Morris University women’s soccer team, 3-0, at Demske Sports Complex in Buffalo, N.Y., Sunday afternoon. The Colonials slip to 0-3 on the season while Canisius gets its first victory against three losses.
Elizabeth Ash gave the Griffs the lead in the 12th minute, cutting inside her defender and placing a left footed shot in the upper left hand corner from 18 yards out. Maddie and Callie Good were credited with the assists. Gretta Dry made it 2-0 in the 27th minute as a long throw-in was headed to the center of the Colonials box. Kayla Kelley saved the ball off the line, but Dry was there to knock home the rebound.
Canisius carried the 2-0 advantage into the break before stretching the margin to 3-0 on the 49th minute. A long ball through the defense by Dry found Sabrina Fitzgerald behind the defense. With Makenzie Shearson changing from net, Fitzgerald calmly slotted her shot inside the left post.
