MCLA Sports InformationPrint Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Salem State's Jasmine Moran scored the game's only goal in overtime to lift the visiting Vikings to a hard fought 1-0 win over MCLA at Shewcraft Field Saturday afternoon.
 
Prior to the contest, MCLA (0-11-1, 0-5-1 MASCAC) honored their four seniors as part of Senior Day.  Honored prior to kickoff were Jess Halverson, Haley Rode, Jackie Murphy, and Maddie Gibney.
 
Both teams had some quality chances throughout the game but nobody could find the back of the net. In the opening half, MCLA's Claudia Bresett ripped a shot that went just high while Salem's Moran and Allie Vaillancourt also had good looks. At halftime, the game remained scoreless even though the Vikings (4-10, 3-2) held a 9-3 shot edge.
 
The second half was more of the same, but both keepers, MCLA's Mady Breese and Salem's Lily Pfefferle, each kept the zeroes on the board.
 
In overtime, Moran finally slipped one past the MCLA defense.  Following a Trailblazer turnover, Salem's Lyndsey Martins would send a through pass up the seam to Moran.  Moran's first touch got past MCLA's Breese and then she calmly knocked it home in the open net to secure the Viking victory. The goal was her sixth of the season.
 
Breese was outstanding for MCLA with nine saves in defeat. Salem's Pfefferle stopped both shots that were on goal for the Vikings.
 
MCLA is back in action on Wednesday when it heads to Castleton for a non-league tilt.  Salem will continue MASCAC play with a makeup match against Bridgewater State.
