POMONA– Sophomore Kristen Hager scored the game-winning goal with one minute remaining in the game to lift the Kean University women’s soccer team to a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over host Richard Stockton College on Saturday afternoon.
In the New Jersey Athletic Conference opener for both teams, senior goalkeeper Leandra Russo made eight saves for the Cougars (6-1-1, 1-0 NJAC).
For the Ospreys (4-2-1, 0-1 NJAC), goalkeeper Brittney Boyle stopped six shots.
The two teams exchanged goals in the opening 10 minutes of action, as the Ospreys got on the board first when Samantha Bean scored off the assist from Jacque Becker at the 7:24 mark.
Just over two minutes later, the Cougars tied the game when senior Randi Vizoco netted the goal off the assist from Hager.
The score would remain that way until Hager netted the game-winner, scoring off the assist from sophomore Carly Seidel with just one minute left in the second overtime.
The Cougars return to action on Wednesday, September 22, when they host Rutgers-Newark in NJAC action at 7:30 p.m.
