Women's Soccer Edged By Harvard, 1-0, In Double Overtime

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Quinnipiac University women's soccer team lost, 1-0, in a non-conference match against Harvard University on Friday evening. With the loss, the Bobcats fall to 5-7-3 on the season, while the Crimson improve to 7-6-1 overall. Quinnipiac is currently ranked 6th in the Northeast Conference at 3-2-3.

"We had a couple of half chances," said Head Coach Dave Clarke. "We played well on the break and I'm proud of the way they played."

The game's only goal was scored in the 102nd minute of play by Harvard sophomore Alexandra Conigliaro for her fourth goal of the season. Katherine Sheeleigh crossed the ball into the box and found Conigliaro for the shot.

Quinnipiac goalie Jillian Kelley (Simsbury, Conn.) saw the first 25 minutes of action and recorded three saves, while senior Kendra Margulies (Weston, Mass.) saw 76 minutes, allowed one goal and made seven saves in her first match of the season. Harvard goalkeepers Alexandra Millet and Jessica Wright split time and made a combined three saves on the game.
