The King's College Women's Soccer team took on the College of New Rochelle Blue Angels on Friday night. Coming off a 3-0 loss in their previous game, the Lady Lions were looking to put that behind them and come away with a result. King's fired their first shot on goal in the second minute of play on their way to a 24-12 advantage in shots as sophomore Corinne Boonstra singlehandedly outshot New Rochelle with 13 shots herself. Boonstra found the back of the net in the 9th minute to give King's a 1-0 lead when she converted a pass from Jacklyn Kelly.
The sophomore connection combined for another goal in the 38th minute when Kelly dished to Boonstra again to give King's a 2-0 advantage which they took into the halftime break. King's kept the pressure on in the second half and held an 11-5 edge in shots. The 2-0 lead would hold up to the final whistle as King's evened their record at 1-1.
The victory marked the first collegiate win for Coach Bracey Fuenzalida as sophomore keeper Bailey Kaufman had another strong performance making 8 saves in the shutout.
The Lady Lions will take on the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences on Saturday October 14 in a non-conference match up. The game is home at 2:30pm at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn.
