DOVER, Del. – For the second consecutive game, the Delaware State University women’s soccer team was held scoreless as American University took a 1-0 win over the Hornets Sunday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.


“This is a difficult loss to take,” DSU head coach Nitan Soni remarked.  “Each game, we’re playing more competitively than the previous contest and they really battled out there.  I have no doubt that this will stick with them this week as we prepare for Rider and Wagner and they’ll continue to work their hardest.”


AU junior Jasmine Mohandesi got off a game-high three shots on the day and was credited with the lone goal of the afternoon.  In the 48th minute, Mohandesi shot the ball from about 10 yards out, which deflected off of a DSU player and went past Hornet freshman goalie Katelyn Koslosky (East Islip, N.Y.) to the middle of the net.


Three DSU players recorded a shot on goal for the day in juniors Candace Wyre (Smyrna, Del.) and Jeanette Salgado (Bergenfield, N.J.) and sophomore Kaitlyn Schech (Abingdon, Md.) and


Koslosky collected three saves on the afternoon.


The loss puts Del State at 1-8-1 on the year while the Eagles improve to 3-3-1.


The Hornets play their next two games on the road, at Rider on Friday and at Wagner next Sunday.
