Mark down another loss for Seton Hall’s winless women’s soccer team.
With a 0-4-2 record on the young season, the Pirates must now deal with the departure of backup goalkeeper Gina Maiorana, who told head coach Rick Stainton that she will leave the program on Tuesday night, according to Seton Hall Athletics.
A senior from Street, Maryland, Maiorana played in three of the Hall’s first six regular season games, tallying just over 114 minutes of action to go with eight saves and four goals allowed. Her lone start – a 3-1 loss to Monmouth on Aug. 30 – saw Maiorana allow three goals in 90 minutes of play.
The understudy to freshman starter Anna MacLean, Maiorana’s decision to jump ship leaves Illissa Blackshear and Laura Dramis as the only other goalies on the Pirates’ roster. Blackshear, who recently finished serving a six-game suspension for academic reasons, made 15 starts for Seton Hall last year, recording a 0.93 goals against average and .825 save percentage during the 2014 season.
Maiorana declined comment when contacted by The Setonian.
