QUEENS, N.Y.

The loss is Sacred Heart's fifth-straight, all coming via shutout. Fordham is now 2-2-0 on the year.

The Ram's first goal came in the 27th minute of action as Lauren Bustos scored her first goal of the season coming off a rebounded shot off the foot of Lentsch.

Lentch struck again in the 44th minute when she sent Katie Sanchez in for a breakaway with just 15 ticks left before the half. Sanchez deposited her shot high over the outstretched hands of SHU keeper Ashley Mocarski (Stratford, CT) for her first goal on the year and produced the final 2-0 margin.
