DAYTON, Ohio - Leigh Ann Robinson's goal in the 15th minute of the match, lifted the 24th-ranked University of San Diego women's soccer team (2-0-1) to a 1-0 victory over the University of Dayton (2-1-0) Friday evening in a weather burdened night at Baujan Field.
In front of an announced crowd of 1,100, the Flyers went to the attack putting up four shots to USD's one through the first 14 minutes of play. At the 14:47 mark, Amy Epsten found herself open on the right side of the field and served in a cross that found Robinson who headed the ball in for the eventual game-winning goal past the Flyers 'keeper Niki Reed.
As the teams went into the locker room for halftime, rain and lightning suspended play for the next 90 minutes. The game finally resumed at 7:20 p.m. but the field conditions would play rough, as players from both sides were sliding through puddles of water.
The UD women had several chances to tally a goal, but the Toreros defense was too strong and Brittany Cameron posted her second consecutive shutout in allowing no goals and recording an impressive seven saves. Cameron's counterpart, Reed, was saddled with the loss for the Flyers as she allowed one goal and recorded two saves.
The Flyers out-shot the Toreros 19-8, but the Toreros held a 3-1 advantage in corner kicks.
The Toreros will remain in the state of Ohio, as they return to action on Sunday in a 10 a.m. match in Columbus against the Buckeyes of Ohio State University.
