FUS women's soccer wins
CRESSON, Pa. - The Franciscan Unviersity of Steubenville women's soccer team qualified for postseason play for the first time since the school restarted athletics and garnered the best record in school history (11-7) with a 2-0 victory at Mount Aloysius College Tuesday.
"I'm just really proud of the girls," head coach Clare McBane said.
Ashley Ruttencutter scored first via a Lauren Stearman pass and Julie Cocozza found the net thanks to a Jordan Byrley offering.
The win crossed one goal off the list for FUS.
"I just couldn't be more proud of them for setting their eyes on a goal ahead of them and then achieving it," McBane said.
The Barons will play Pitt-Greensburg on Saturday in the first round of the AMCC playoffs. The location depends on the outcome of Greensburg's final game with LaRoche College. A win means FUS will hit the road. A loss means FUS will host.
