The University of Hartford women’s soccer team has not lost a game since Aug. 23 and have shown no signs of slowing down. Currently standing first in the America East Conference with a record of 12-1-2, the Hawks have already obtained a bid in the American East Championship.

On Oct. 11, the Hawks went up against the University of Albany Great Danes, at home in West Hartford, Conn. Scoring opened up in the 22 minute, when Julia Carr played a long ball to Gabriela Garmory, who was able to capitalize for her sixth score of the season. The remainder of the first half was relatively quiet, aside from multiple corner kick opportunities for the Hawks, which they were not able to capitalize on. In the second half, the Hawks added to their lead in the 56 minute, when Ashley Claud capitalized on a long ball by Garmory, to make the score 2-0. Due to the phenomenal effort by the Hawks’ defense, the Great Danes were limited to only six shots in the second half, all of which either fell wide or were saved by Hartford goalkeeper Maia Perez. The Great Danes were able to capitalize on a penalty kick in the 89 minute, but it was too little and too late, and the Hawks took the match by a final score of 2-1.

Coming off of their win versus Albany, the Hawks faced the Binghamton Bearcats on Oct. 14. This game was an inclusion of their Senior Day, which honored the five seniors that will be graduating at the end of this year. The Seniors include Julia Carr, Ashley Claud, Hayley Nolan, Annabelle Phillips, and Molly Socha.

Scoring opened up in the ninth minute, when Ashley Claud finished a through ball by Sierra Stone, to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead early on. Just five minutes later, the Hawks extended their lead, due to a powerful strike by junior Kaila Lozada. The remainder of the first half was scoreless, with the Hawks’ defense limiting the Bearcat’s opportunities. In the 70 minute, the Hawks further extended their lead, when a long shot by Hayley Nolan deflected off of a Binghamton Defender and into the back of the net.

The Bearcats immediately responded with a score of their own, but it was too late for a comeback, and the Hawks took the game with a final score of 3-1.

The Hawks travel to Stony Brook, NY, to face the Stony Brook Seawolves on Oct. 18.
