Women's Soccer Captures First Patriot League Victory
Down 1-0 in the 22nd minute, the Army West Point Women's Soccer team rallied back to earn its first Patriot League victory with a 2-1 road win at Bucknell Saturday night. Plebe Sydney Shafer and Alyssa Carfagno scored for the Black Knights in the win. Sydney Cassalia preserved the Cadets' lead with a penalty kick saved at the 56-minute mark. Carfagno finished the day with a career-high three points. Bucknell netted the first goal of the game in the 22nd minute. The Cadets knotted the score before halftime when Shafer went low on the Bison goaltender. She was assisted by Lauren Drysdale and Carfagno. The Bison had an opportunity to go up 2-1 with a penalty kick awarded, but a save by Cassalia gave the Black Knights the momentum they needed for the victory. Bucknell's Abby Gearhart lined up for the PK and Cassalia dived to her left for the stop. Army's Carfagno notched the game-winner with 22 minutes remaining on a volley into the net. Read more.
