Seton Hall blanks Army women in soccer, 2-0

WEST POINT – Defender Meghan Hayes scored early in the first half and midfielder Frankie Maier added a second goal just before halftime, and Seton Hall held off Army over the final 45 minutes for a 2-0 non-conference women’s soccer match Friday afternoon.

The win is the first of the season for the Pirates (1-1-1), who outshot the Black Knights (1-2-0) 15-6. Five of Army’s six shots were on goal, to include back-to-back attempts by Candace Stewart and Ruthie Rosenberger just over 40 seconds apart early in the second half, but keeper Jennifer Pettigrew made both stops in finishing with four along with a team save.

Hayes tallied in close to open the scoring in the 13th minute, then set up Maier with the insurance goal as the midfielder beat Army freshman keeper Jordan Cassalia one-on-one in the 34th minute.
