The University of Scranton women's soccer team kept its composure after a back-and-forth start and went on to pick up a key Landmark Conference victory by defeating Drew University, 4-2, on Saturday afternoon at Ranger Stadium.
The victory clinches a playoff spot and moves Scranton (14-2-1, 4-0-1 Landmark) past Drew (13-2, 4-1 Landmark) and into first place in the conference. The Royals have one more conference match remaining – Saturday, Nov. 2, at home against Catholic – and can secure the top seed in the upcoming playoffs with a victory in that match.
The victory extends Scranton's unbeaten streak to 15 straight matches. They have not lost since a pair of losses to open the season. It also extends the Royals' unbeaten streak in conference play to 29, a span that extends back to the 2009 season. They are 26-0-3 during that span.
The Royals will wrap up regular season play when they host Catholic University on Senior Day on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 1 p.m. at Fitzpatrick Field. Come out and support the team! Read more
