Another one-goal game and another frustrating night for Hofstra’s women’s soccer team, which fell at home to Northeastern 1-0 Thursday night.

For the 10th time this season Hofstra was involved in a one-goal game, with six of those matches ending in a 1-0 final. The Pride has won six of the 10 one-goal games it has played and is 3-3 in games that finished 1-0.

Under the Hofstra Soccer Stadium lights, the Pride was not without its chances as they outshot Northeastern 20-13 (7-4 on goal) and had six corner kicks to the Huskies one. But Hofstra was kept off the scoreboard by Northeastern keeper Nathalie Nidetch of Hewlett, who had six saves on the night to earn her fourth consecutive clean sheet and fifth on the season.

The Huskies would get the only goal of the game in the 26th-minute as Chelsea Domond took a long pass from Lizzie George at the top of the box and made a quick move through two defenders before lifting a shot over Jenna Borresen of East Meadow and into the back of the net.

Miri Taylor had six shots for Hofstra (one on goal) and Jenn Buoncore of Kings Park had five shots (four on goal) in the loss.

The Huskies moved to 5-0 in the CAA and 8-6-1 overall, extending their win streak to five games. Hofstra saw a two-game winning streak end and fell to 3-2 in league play and 9-5 overall.

Hofstra is back in action Sunday at 1 p.m. when it hosts William & Mary at 1 p.m.
