The Charger Bulletin

WEST HAVEN–The University of New Haven women’s soccer team defeated the visiting Bentley College Falcons 1-0 Saturday afternoon. The Chargers improve to 7-6-1 overall and 5-4-0 in the Northeast-10 Conference and the Falcons fall to 3-10-1 overall and 1-7-1 in conference play.

Åsa Jonsson scored her first career goal as a Charger off a pass from senior Selina Moylan. Jonsson took the shot from the left side of the 18-yard box and sailed it over the Bentley goalkeeper, finding the net on the right side of the Bentley goal. That was all the Charger would need Saturday as they took their seventh victory of the season.

The Chargers attempted 12 shots in the match and riffled nine shots of goal. The Falcons’ goalkeeper was credited with eight saves, four in each half. UNH held the Falcons at bay, with just five shots, three on goal and Chargers’ goalkeeper Kim Taylor grabbed her second shutout of the season.

The Chargers tallied nine corner kicks, while the Falcons took only three. Fouls were called fairly even with the Chargers recording 10 and the Falcons seven.

The Chargers return to action on Wednesday, Oct. 15 against Pace. Game time in Pleasantville, N.Y. is scheduled for 3 p.m.
