STOCKTON, N.J. - The Shenandoah University women's soccer team earned its third win of the 2017 season Sunday with a 1-0 non-league shutout over Stockton (N.J.).

In the 40th minute, Yergin intercepted a pass from Ospreys (2-3) goalkeeper Nicole Pallante, volleyed the ball over Pallante's head and then tapped the ball into the open net for what proved to be the only goal of the game.

The tally is the fourth of the season for Yergin and the game-winner the eighth of her 24-game career.

As would be expected in a one-goal game, the two teams played relatively evenly with SU holding a 12-10 advantage in shots and Stockton earning four of the game's six corners.

Charlotte Evans had two saves in earning her second win of the season and her first career shutout.

"It was a hard fought game that featured another strong performance from (stopper) Michelle Krause," SU head coach Liz Pike said. 

"Becky (Rebecca Collimore) had a strong effort on the play that led to Yergin's goal. A good win for us."

The Hornets continue this road trip with a 7 p.m. game Wednesday night at Dickinson.
