-Records: Assumption (9-8, 6-5 NE10), Adelphi (8-9, 5-6 NE10)

-Location: Garden City, N.Y. (Motamed Field)

-The Lead: Freshman Deirdre Burchill (Braintree, Mass./ NashobaRegional) beat Panther goaltender Amanda Gargulio in the 62nd minute to lead the Hounds to a 1-0 victory over Adelphi on Wednesday evening in an NE10 conference contest. 

HOW IT HAPPENED:

- The game remained scoreless through the first half as both teams tallied three corners, but Assumption out shot Adelphi by two. 

- With 8:43 left in the game, Burchill broke the tie when she received a pass near the far side of the shooting circle and made a move past the defender to get 1-on-1 with the goalie Gargulio. She faked right and then Gargiulo charged to making a diving stop, but Burchill went back to her left  and past the goalie, before tapping it in for the game-winner.

- The Adelphi offense had a push in the second half, resgistering four penalty corners in attempt to take the lead but the Hounds' defense held on to the shutout.
