Hofstra’s women’s soccer team closed out a stretch of five straight games away from home with a 2-0 win over Columbia on Thursday at Rocco Commisso Stadium.
The win moved the Pride to 5-3 on the season. The team will close out the non-conference portion of its schedule on Sunday against Stony Brook at Hofstra Soccer Stadium.
Against Columbia, Hofstra got on the board early in the first half as Monique Iannella converted a penalty kick in the 12th minute for her first goal of the season. Jordan Littleboy 19 minutes later would redirect a pass from Jenn Buoncore of Kings Park past Columbia goalkeeper Sophie Whitehouse to give Hofstra a 2-0 lead.
Hofstra ended the match outshooting Columbia 10-9 but the Pride did not attempt a corner kick on the evening.
