WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross women’s soccer team will play its final non-conference game of the season Tuesday evening when Dartmouth comes to Linda Johnson Smith Soccer Stadium.
The Crusaders are coming off a 1-0 victory over Loyola (Md.) last Saturday on their senior day. Junior Kelly Crowley scored the game-winning goal on a header off a corner kick from teammate senior Ang Seslija in the 28th minute. Crowley, the reigning Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, and the rest of the squad now turn their attention to Ivy League opponent Dartmouth.
“We are excited about our last non-conference match up,” head coach Casey Brown said. “Dartmouth is always a great regional battle and we are looking forward to use it as a way to be even better for our next Patriot League games ahead. It is important we take another step with our play.”
