LOUDONVILLE, NY - Monmouth University junior forward Alexis McTamney (Bordentown, NJ/Bordentown Regional) registered her fifth goal of the season to lead the Hawks to a 1-0 victory at Siena on Saturday afternoon in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference women's soccer action. The Hawks, now 8-1-2 overall, improve to 4-0 in the league, opening 4-0 for a second time in three seasons in the conference.
"This was a great result on the road for us," said head coach Krissy Turner, who has guided Monmouth to a 21-1-2 mark in league play in its third season in the MAAC. "This was a terrific week for us to get two conference wins away from Hesse Field."
Monmouth, which outshot Siena 8-3 in the opening half, broke the scoreless tie in the 43rd minute when McTamney connected on a feed from sophomore midfielder Sophie Centi (Churchville, MD/The John Carroll School), who registered her third assist of the campaign.
The Hawks, who have now scored first in eight games this season, outshot the Saints (5-5-2, 1-3 MAAC) 15-6 and held an 8-5 edge in corner kick opportunities.
Junior Sydney Lavan (Jackson, NJ/Jackson Memorial) made one stop in goal for the Hawks in her sixth shutout of the year, while her counterpart Liz Rogan made three saves for Siena.
Monmouth has won four straight and is unbeaten in its last six contests, outscoring the opposition 14-4 during that stretch.
McTamney, who notched her second game-winner of 2015, now has 10 decisive goals in her career as the forward increased her career goal total to 22 scores and 58 total points. Centi now has four career assists for the Blue & White.
Monmouth returns to action on Wednesday, October 7 when the Hawks host in-state rival Rider on Hesse Field at 7:00 p.m., which will be broadcast on ESPN3.
