The Seton Hall women’s soccer team lost to Providence 1-0 in their first home game of the season on Thursday.
The Friars’ Avery Snead scored the game-winning goal in the 61st minute off a corner kick to hand the Pirates their third consecutive loss since Big East conference play started.
61′: The Friars’ Elayna Grillakis delivered a corner kick into the Pirates’ box, and Snead got on the end of the set piece for what would be the game-winning goal.
In the seventh minute, Hannah McNulty got the Friars’ only shot on goal in the first half. The shot was saved by Seton Hall’s Grace Gordon.
Seton Hall’s Lauren Hooper had a shot in the 39th minute hit the crossbar and go over the net. The Pirates and Friars ended first half scoreless with each team having taken one corner each in the first half.
Seton Hall’s biggest threat on goal came in the 85th minute. The Hall’s Izzy Engel passed to Naomi Welch who got a ball over freshman goalkeeper Emma Bodmer. The goal was called back, however, as the referees ruled it offsides.
Both teams registered over 10 shots and three shots on goal. Seton Hall recorded two corner kicks and five fouls and Gordon made two saves.
Seton Hall will travel again for their next game against the University of Connecticut on Sunday with the hope of recording their first Big East win of the season.
