Lady Redhawks Secure Fifteenth Playoff Appearance in a Row

BUFFALO, NY – Lady Redhawks goalkeeper, Ralene Zajac, made five saves as La Roche women's soccer (6-6-4, 4-3-1) fell to Medaille College (6-10, 4-4) 1-0 in a heartbreaker on Saturday. Despite the loss, the Lady Redhawks clinched their fifteenth consecutive playoff appearance.

Medaille's Joey Ruderman broke a 0-0 tie in the 60th minute with her eighth goal of the season. The Lady Redhawks best scoring chance came in the 89th minute but La Roche could not convert. Nicole Ferraco sent a corner kick into the box but the ball was headed over the crossbar.

Bethanie Moreschi, Jessica Greco, and Shelby Novak each recorded a shot on goal in the loss.

The Lady Redhawks will travel to Penn State Altoona on Wednesday to try and secure a home playoff game. La Roche needs a win and a D'Youville loss to clinch a game at the La Roche Soccer Field.
