Notes: Southern New Hampshire won its first NCAA Tournament match ever Friday, dispatching Georgian Court and its 15-match unbeaten streak, 3-0 ... junior Miranda Peloquin (Greenville, R.I.) scored first in the 19th minute, with junior Shannon Valente (Windham, Maine) adding her first career goal in the 33rd minute ... the Penmen all but sealed it in the 58th minute, as Allyson Patterson (Seekonk, Mass.), who set up Valente's strike, found the back of the net herself ... senior goalkeeper Paige Salmon (W. Hempstead, N.Y.) made all four saves she needed to, including a spectacular diving stop in the 18th minute, for her 12th shutout of the season ... SNHU is now 1-2-1 (.375) all-time in four NCAA Tournament appearances ... the 15 victories are the sixth most in a single season in program history.
