The Central Connecticut women's soccer team earned a 2-0 victory over Wagner (4-12-0, 1-6-0 NEC) on Friday, improving its overall record to 3-11-1 (2-5-0 NEC). Freshman defender Marissa Quesnel scored her first collegiate goal in the win.
Despite being outshot 22-14 in the match, the Blue Devils made their shots count in the shutout victory. Quesnel found the back of the net in the 27th minute of play on a penalty kick that evaded Seahawk goalie, Lisa Capelli, to put Central up 1-0. CCSU remained in the lead by one at the half.
The second half started out strong again for the Blue Devils as, just over five minutes into the period, sophomore Kerriann Welch fired two back-to-back shots. The second, a blast from 20 yards out, landed on target notching Welch's third goal of the season. Welch currently leads Central with three goals, two assists and eight points. The Blue Devils posted six more shots in the half compared to Wagner's 12 but game away victorious after 90 minutes of play.
Central goalkeeper Nikola Deiter recorded five saves in the win compared to seven by Capelli and the Seahawks also posted seven corner kicks compared to three for CCSU.
The Blue Devils will return to action on Sunday, Oct. 21 at LIU Brooklyn at 1 p.m.
