Longwood Defeats Howard on Senior Day
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Longwood women's soccer team got the better of the offensive play and defeated Howard, 1-0, Friday night on a rainy senior day at Greene Stadium. The loss drops HU's record to 2-14 (2-3 USC). It was the final home game for Kelli Johnson, the lone Bison senior.
Michelle DeSieno scored the unassisted goal for Longwood at 43:55. The Lancers outshot the Bison 7-3, with four of Longwood's shots coming on goal. All of Howard's chances came from outside the box, as it was unable to convert any chances in close.
The Lady Bison drew six corner kicks to the Lancers' three and were whistled for two fouls to Longwood's four.
Lancer keeper Anne Whitmore earned a shutout while HU GK Jessamyn Perkins stopped three shots in the loss.
The Lady Bison will resume play on Tuesday, Oct. 30 with a non-conference matchup against Navy at 7pm in Annapolis.
