Penn Downs Saint Joseph’s On Second Half Goal

Goal in the 51st Minute Gives the Red and Blue Another 1 – 0 Victory


The University of Pennsylvania won its fourth game of the year, and it was by a 1 – 0 score. All four of the wins for Penn have been by that margin. This one came on Hawk Hill when junior forward Megan Lusher scored into the upper right corner of the net at the 50:06 mark, her first collegiate goal.

The Quakers improve to 4 – 2 for the season. Goalie Laurence Gladu, who has played every minute in goal this season, also recorded her fourth clean slate. She made 2 saves in the game.

Hawks goalie Katie Cappelletti made a game-high 8 saves.

Penn posted a 20 – 10 advantage in shots. Junior forward Isobel Glass took 6 shots, 4 at the net. Junior forward Kat Peroulas had 5 shots, 4 required a save. Lusher got off 4 shots, the one on goal was the difference maker.

Senior midfielder Natalie Nevins and senior forward Sam Dumont led Saint Joe’s with 2 shots each. Senior midfielder Nicole Angelini had the only shot on goal.

The Quakers improve to 4 – 2 on the season and a home game next as Villanova comes to Penn Park on Thursday.

Penn Coach Dr. Krissy Turner now has 301 career coaching victories.

The Hawks are still seeking their first victory as they drop to 0 – 5 – 3. This game was the final non-conference game for SJU who host Rhode Island the same night.
