PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Junior goalkeeper Ashley Riberdy (Manchester, N.H./Memorial) stopped seven shots to earn her second shutout of the season Tuesday evening as Plymouth State University shut out Colby-Sawyer College, 2-0, in a non-conference women’s soccer match at Panther Field.
The Panthers, who had scored only one goal in their previous four games combined, tallied once in each half Tuesday to pull out the win, with both goals set up by freshman Stacy DiSabato (Manchester, N.H./Central). PSU stopped its two-game losing streak and improved to 4-3-0 overall, while Colby-Sawyer dropped its fourth straight and fell to 1-6-1.
Senior Kelsey McBride (Brookline, N.H.) scored the first Panther goal in the 38th minute to give the hosts the lead, and sophomore Brianna Coderre (Ira, Vt.) added the insurance marker in the second half to clinch the win. McBride now leads the Panthers with three goals this season, while Coderre is second on the team with two goals.
Plymouth State finished with a 21-7 advantage in shots, including a 13-1 margin in the first half. Senior keeper Jennifer Plouffe (North Smithfield, R.I.) had a busy night in the Chargers’ net, finishing with 13 saves.
PSU plays its next three games on the road, beginning with a key Little East Conference match-up Saturday at archrival Keene State (1:00 p.m.) Colby-Sawyer continues in-state competition Thursday with a visit to New England College (4:00 p.m.)
