(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) – The fourth-ranked Thomas More College women's soccer team remain unbeaten today (Saturday, October 8, 2016) as it shutout Chatham University, 2-0, in a Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) match at Varsity Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With the win, the Saints improve to 12-0-1 overall and 3-0 in the PAC and the Cougars fall to 7-2-2 and 2-1 in the PAC.
"It was a long trip this weekend and coming away with a result is always a good thing," said TMC head coach Jeff Cummings. "Now we have a quick turnaround and have to prepare for the next game on Monday while maintaining our concentration."
TMC continued to press their advantage through the rest of the first half as the echoes of kicked balls reverberated of the walls of surrounding buildings like canon shots as Thomas More traded volleys with Chatham in the Cougar's half. The best chance in the remainder of the half was a shot from Lauren Rose (West Chester, Ohio/Lakota West) off the cross bar in the 38th minute. Three minutes into the second half Rose won the cross bar challenge for the day with a free kick on that also rebounded from the top frame of the goal.
