Mercy Women's Soccer Claims 2-1 Win over Nyack College
The Mercy College women’s soccer team improved to 4-6 on the season by beating Nyack College (3-9) in a Columbus Day matinee by a 2-1 score.
In the second half, Nyack’s Alisha Smith tied the score in the 54th minute, with an assist from Amanda Carter.
Both teams had opportunities to add more goals, but it was Mercy who was able to do so, as Stephanie Manta (Valley Stream, N.Y./Valley Stream Central) took a pass from freshman Alison Mrowinski (Syracuse, N.Y./Solvay) and cemented the game for Mercy. For Manta, it was the first goal of her college career.
In goal, sophomore Stephanie DiLegge (Bay Shore, N.Y./Bay Shore) made six saves.
Mercy returns to action with another non-conference match on Thursday afternoon, October 14, travelling to Bloomfield College for a 2:00 p.m. start.
