Fordham Tallies Game-Winner in 103rd Minute For 1-0 Win Over @BonniesWSoccer

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – A goal from Fordham's Lane Cronin in the 103rd minute gave the visiting Rams a 1-0 double overtime victory over the St. Bonaventure women's soccer team at a cloudy and cold Marra Athletics Complex Sunday afternoon.

Fordham (7-3-3, 2-0-2 A-10) controlled the pace of play for the majority of the afternoon, but strong play in net from Bona freshman keeper Lauren Malcolm kept things scoreless.

The Bonnies opened the second half with a strong chance as Jessica Scruggs received a pass 25 yards out, allowing the sophomore to dribble into the box. Scruggs then fired on net from the near wing, but her attempt was denied with a leaping save at the 48-minute mark.

At the end of the first overtime, the Bonnies had a chance with both Scruggs and Sabrina Sousa-Sampson going after a loose ball in front. A shot was placed on net, but it was scooped up by Fordham keeper Megan Fitzgerald to end the threat.

Prior to Cronin's game-winner, she delivered a shot right on in the 102nd minute that was turned away by Malcolm. Cronin set-up her goal with a loose ball on the far wing, wheeling toward the center of the box and placed her shot in the top shelf of the goal for the win and her second game-winner of the week.

Malcolm tied a career high with nine saves in net for the Bonnies (3-9-1, 0-4).

Bona now hits the road, traveling to Rhode Island on Oct. 13 for a 7 p.m. scheduled start. The Bonnies return home next weekend to begin a three-game home stand on Oct. 16.
