The 18th ranked Penmen needed nine more minutes than regulation would allow, but they left Jess Dow Field with a 2-1 victory over Southern Connecticut University on Saturday.

Junior Allyson Patterson (Seekonk, Mass.) kept the game alive for Southern New Hampshire, re-equalizing the game after falling behind two minutes earlier.

The winner came from senior Shae Roys (North Chelmsford, Mass.), her first of the season and first since Oct. 30, 2018 in the Northeast-10 Semifinals.

Patterson has now scored in six of the team’s last seven matches, including four straight.

The Penmen (5-2-0, 3-2-0) return to action Wednesday, Oct. 2 (7 p.m.) when they play host Stonehill College at Penmen Stadium.

Two second half goals provided the difference on Saturday as Southern New Hampshire fell to top ranked Adelphi, 2-1.

Junior Jannik Mohr (Koblenz, Germany) provided the Penmen’s score, his first in a Southern New Hampshire uniform.

Southern New Hampshire has now dropped four straight, with all four losses coming by one goal. It is the first time the Penmen have lost four-in-a-row since Sept. 27-Oct. 7, 2006.

The Penmen (2-4-1, 0-3-0) return to action Wednesday, Oct. 2 (4 p.m.) when they play host to Bentley University at Penmen Stadium.

In a battle of top ten teams, #9 Adelphi came out on top against #8 Southern New Hampshire on Saturday, 2-0.

The Penmen mustered just one shot on goal despite five penalty corners in the contest.

Southern New Hampshire was shutout for the first time since September 8, 2018 (25 games) when it suffered a 5-0 setback at the hands of Limestone College. It is just the third time the Penmen have failed to find the back of the cage in their last 33 contests.

The loss snaps a six-game winning streak for the Penmen and is their first regulation defeat of 2019.
