Eva Frazzoni and her College of Saint Rose Women’s Soccer teammates recorded its second straight shutout and chalked up its fourth win in its last five matches behind a 3-0 triumph at Northeast-10 Conference rival Saint Anselm.
Senior back Elisa Galbiati twice converted passes from freshman forward Nina Predanic while freshman midfielder Frazzoni provided the game-winner in the opening 18 minutes.
Sophomore keeper Madison Taylor recorded three of her four saves in the first half en route to her third clean sheet of the autumn. At the other end, senior Cassie Quattropani turned away five threats-on-target for Saint Anselm.
"Our defense played great and Maddy made some superb saves. We created a number of scoring chances in the run of play. Nina provided great services and Eli finished two super goals. Our midfield battled for 90. It was an overall great team win against a good opponent", said head coach Laurie Darling Gutheil.
Freshman midfielder Karmyn Carter helped get Saint Rose going by delivering a cross that Frazzoni scored into an empty net.
Predanic then lofted a corner that Galbiati headed home with 25:56 gone by to make it 2-0 at intermission. The duo then connected again on a restart when Predanic delivered pass that Galbiati volleyed into the goal for her team-leading seventh strike.
