HAMILTON, N.Y. – Three different Colgate players scored as the Holy Cross women's soccer team fell to the Raiders on Sunday afternoon at Van Doren Field by a score of 3-0. The Crusaders are now 5-7-1 on the season and 1-2-0 in the Patriot League. Colgate improves to 8-4-2 (3-0-0 Patriot League).

Colgate got on the board first when senior Jillian Kinter received a pass from sophomore Jenna Gibney and beat Holy Cross sophomore goalkeeper Carly McCabe (Barrington, R.I.) with 21:33 remaining in the first half for her team-high 10th goal of the season. The Crusaders took six shots compared to Colgate's four, but the Raiders took a 1-0 lead into the locker room at halftime.

The Raiders took advantage of two Crusader fouls inside the penalty box that resulted in two penalty kicks. The first came 14:23 into the second half as sophomore Caroline Brawner netted her fifth goal of the season. The second came with 25:21 remaining in the game off the foot of senior Alyssa Manoogian for her first goal of the year.

Holy Cross outshot the Raiders 15-13 but was unable to beat starting Colgate goalkeeper Ashley Walsh who made six saves and is now 8-4-2 on the season. Erin Cummings replaced Walsh with 10:25 remaining in the game and made two saves. McCabe finished up with three saves and is now 4-4-1. Senior Maura Fox (Shrewsbury, Mass.) led the Crusaders with two shots on goal.

The Crusaders will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 13, for a 5:00 p.m. match at home against Lafayette.
