The Rock triumphed over Edinboro University with a final score of 1-0 on Wednesday night.
The Rock’s goal that led them to victory was scored by Tessa Keeley, a sophomore midfielder, and assisted by freshman forward Taylor Sweeney. “The finish on the the goal that she scored, was just technically hit well.
Defensively, The Rock excelled as well to earn the shutout. Freshman goalkeeper Charlotte Elrod recorded her sixth individual shutout by stopping four Fighting Scot shots. They did not allow a shot on goal for the last 33 minutes of the game.
“Their forwards were very good at moving the ball around, and my team was very good at adjusting and staying compact. On top of that, my goalkeeper had the most stellar game that I’ve seen her play all season.”
The PSAC victory over the ranked Fighting Scots moves Slippery Rock into a tie for fourth place in the league ranks. With three games left in their regular season, The Rock hopes to improve from their 25 points to climb further up the standings. Slippery Rock improved to 9-5-1 overall, and 8-4-1 in the PSAC Conference with the win.
The team hopes that the win will influence their NCAA standings to receive a bid to the tournament while they face a tough end of the year schedule.
“Tessa, Taylor, Binder, and Dara and I could keep going. They all did great,” Coach Griggs laughed.
Slippery Rock will finish its regular season at Loch Haven University on Saturday at 1 p.m.
