Pioneers Shut Out Robert Morris for First NEC Win

(Moon Township, PA) - Lindsay Kasten (Fair Haven, NJ) scored the game's only goal and Kim Stow (Norwalk, CT) stopped all five shots in the Sacred Heart Pioneer field hockey team's 1-0 win at Robert Morris Friday afternoon.

Kasten took a goal-mouth feed from Chelsea Carlson (Peterborough, NH) and knocked it in the wide-open goal for her team-leading fifth goal of the season at the 59:59 mark.  Carlson earned her third assist of the year to tie her for the team lead in helpers. 

Robert Morris goalie Stephanie Seeley made three saves on the day, but Stow bested her with her second shutout of the season.  Stow's five saves upped her total to a Northeast Conference best 139 on the season, helping drop her goals against average to 2.98.

Sacred Heart captured its first conference win of the season with the victory.  The Pioneers are next in action Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. as they close out a two-game weekend road trip through western Pennsylvania at Saint Francis (PA).
