FAIRFIELD, CT - Emma Howes scored the only goal visiting Fairleigh Dickinson would need in the 29th minute, off a feed from Amanda Wheeler, to lead the Knights to a 2-0 win at Sacred Heart in a Northeast Conference women's soccer game Sunday afternoon.
The loss drops SHU to 2-2-3 in the NEC and into 5th place with two games to play. At stake in the final two home games - Friday against Qunnipiac and Sunday against Central CT - is a berth in the four-team NEC post-season tournament. FDU moves to 4-3 with the win and into third place.
The Pioneers outshot FDU in the second half, 9-6, but couldn't dent keeper Rachel Derrico. In fact, the only score of the period came off the foot of Emma Yamada from Christine Niven in the 79th minute.
