Mangiardi leads women's soccer to 2-0 shutout over Rivier

Nashua, NH- MCLA's Lauren Mangiardi scored a goal and collected an assist as she led the Trailblazers to a 2-0 road win over Rivier this evening in non league action.  The Trailblazers improve to 6-10 overall while the Raiders drop to 4-12.

MCLA's Kate Mancini scored the game winner in the 41st minute of play.  She would knock home a feed from Mangiardi and the Trailblazers would lead 1-0.  The game would stay that way into halftime before Mangiardi struck again.

This time, it was just 1:35 into the second half.  She tallied an unassisted marker to increase the lead to 2-0.  The goal was her team leading 8th of the season.

Neither team mounted much offense on the crisp, cool night as MCLA held a 12-4 overall shot advantage over the Raiders.  Rivier couldn't get a ball past Megan Richardson who earned the shutout for MCLA.  It was her sixth win of the season and she stopped both shots on net.

The Trailblazers are back in action this weekend as they host Bridgewater State in the season finale.  The date and time are pending due to the approaching storm.  More information will be available tomorrow by mid afternoon regarding date and time.
