Keene State edges PSC

October 12th, 2002 by Adam

KEENE, N.H. – Junior midfielder Jennifer Ortisi (Allenstown, N.H.) had a goal and an assist Saturday to lead the Keene State College women’s soccer team to a
2-1 Little East Conference victory over rival Plymouth State College.

Ranked 14th nationally and second in New England, Keene State has won six of its last seven games to improve to 10-2-1 overall and 3-0 in the LEC. Plymouth
State, which has played on of the toughest schedules in the nation, is 2-8-0 and 1-2 in conference play.

Ortisi gave the Owls a 1-0 lead late in the first half when she took a short lead pass from Colleen Antonini (Plymouth, Mass.) and fired a shot into the top corner of
the net. Erin Lester (Walpole, N.H.) put KSC ahead 2-0 early in the second half, scoring her team-leading 10th goal of the season.

KSC goalie Michelle Mason (Fairport, N.Y.), who finished with nine saves, made several outstanding stops to keep PSC off the board. She tipped the ball just over
the crossbar on a drive by Panther sophomore Michelle Dubois (Auburn, Maine) in the first half, and made a great diving save on a shot by Sandra Petlick (New Castle,
NH.) with 3:51 to play.

PSC broke the shutout bid with 43 seconds remaining when Petlick scored on a drive to the far corner of the net, her third goal of the season.

Freshman goalkeeper Hayley Quinones (Waitsfield, Vt.) made seven saves for PSC as Keene State had a 19-10 advantage in shots.

After playing on the road in seven of its first 10 games, PSC is at Panther Field for the next four, beginning Thursday at 4:00 p.m. with a non-conference match
against Colby-Sawyer College.
