Notes: The Penmen will be looking to secure their first-ever Northeast-10 Championship berth as they host the University of New Haven in Tuesday's home finale. Southern New Hampshire knocked off Franklin Pierce University in its most recent outing by a final score of 1-0. Junior Laura van der Doorn (Beverwijk, The Netherlands) found the back of the cage in the 14th minute, as she converted a feed from senior Maddie Holt (Seabrook, N.H.) for the lone goal in the contest. Senior Melanie Rennie (Madison, Conn.) made the lead stand after she stopped each of the five shots that came her way to secure her third shutout of the season and the 11th of her collegiate career.

Last Time Out:
American Int'l 3, New Haven 2 (11/03/2018 at West Haven, Conn.)
Streak: Lost 7
Scoring Leaders:
#13 Alexis Rider, Fr. (5 goals, 1 assist, 11 points)

#11 Reilly Bialko, Fr. (2 goals, 0 assists, 4 points)
#20 Morgan McCarty, Fr. (2 goals, 0 assists, 4 points)

In Goal:
#0 Natalie Shaker, So. (2-13, 5.12 GAA, .707 save pct., 181 saves)

Notes: The Chargers head into Tuesday's tilt looking to halt a seven-game slide. New Haven fell at home to American International College, 3-2, on Saturday to see its record move to 2-14 and 1-11 within the confines of the Northeast-10 Conference. The Chargers raced out to 1-0 lead after freshman Alexis Rider (Delran, N.J.) tallied her fourth goal of the year in the third minute. The lead would be short-lived, however, as the Yellow Jackets rattled off three-straight goals to turn a one-goal deficit into a two-goal advantage. Rider would a second goal later in the contest, but it would be all the offense New Haven would generate, as sophomore Natalie Shaker (Newtown, Conn.) was saddled with the loss despite registering 10 saves.
