Newark, Del. – The University of Delaware women’s soccer team earned its second win at Delaware Mini-Stadium Friday evening as the Blue Hens topped the Red Flash of St. Francis (Pa.), 2-0.

Senior midfielder Andrea Arnold scored the first Blue Hen goal, and her first tally of the season in the 56th of the contest to put Delaware up, 1-0. Dianna Marinaro registered the first assist of her senior campaign on the first Blue Hen score.

With 4:38 remaining in the contest, senior captain Shannon Kearney scored an unassisted goal off a breakaway to carry the Blue Hens to a 2-0 victory. The goal marked the second of the season for Kearny.

Senior keeper Jessica Levy registered five saves against the Red Flash while earning her second victory of the season.

“Tonight was a pleasure for everyone. We were able to stay unbeaten at home and the fans, I’m sure enjoyed a bit of the beautiful game. St. Francis is a terrific team and I am sure they will compete for their conference title. Our first goal was beautiful with five or six passes leading to a great finish by Andie. The second goal was a great counter by Kearney.”
