Bard stops Sage's Skyline run with 1-0 victory

Bard stops Sage's Skyline run with 1-0 victory


Annandale on the Hudson, NY---The Sage's women's soccer team traveled to Bard College for the opening round of the 2010 Skyline Conference Championships. In a tense playoff game that was scoreless for more than 83 minutes, it took a nearly perfect play to score the game-winning goal. Bard would triumph with a 1-0 score to advance.

Junior Erin Hannigan (West Pittston, PA) scored in the 84th minute to lift Bard to a 1-0 win over Sage in the Skyline Conference quarterfinals on Saturday. The Raptors will next play No. 2 seed Farmingdale State on the road on Tuesday in the semifinals. Bard improves to 10-8, while Sage drops to 8-8.   

Bard held an edge in possession throughout the game, but the Raptors really began to turn up the pressure as the second half progressed. Sophomore Amelia Bronder-Giroux (Malden, MA), who had just entered the game, chipped a high pass from the corner toward the penalty area. There, freshman Maddy Huggins (Mukilteo, WA) used the back of her head to make a blind pass behind her into the box, where Hannigan ran onto the ball unmarked and beat Sage senior goalie Brittany McDonald (Schenectady, NY/Schalmont) for the game's only goal.

McDonald was called on to make eight saves in the game; Bard freshman Amy Strawbridge (Indianapolis, IN) made three.
