Albany, NY — The Sage Colleges' women's soccer team hosted Skidmore College in Tuesday night in a non-conference game. Deadlocked at 2-2 as the clock in regulation was winding down, Skidmore's rookie forward Emily Vinick (Chatham, NJ/Chatham) struck with the game-winner at the 87:25 mark to propel the Thoroughbreds to the 3-2 win. Skidmore improves to 5-1-2, while the loss puts Sage at 4-3.
