PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – Jillian Ferro, a senior soccer player at Pace University, became the school's all-time leading point scorer as the Setters topped the University New Haven Chargers 3-1 in Northeast-10 Conference action.
After falling behind 1-0 early in the contest, the Setters knotted things up in the 37th minute when Ferro completed a penalty kick after the Chargers were called for a handball inside the box.
Tied 1-1 early in the second half, Ferro scored again in the 57th minute with the goal that set her record in the Pace books. Coming off a corner kick from freshman Drew Ribadeneyra, Ferro redirected the ball just inside the near post with a header. The goal was her eighth of the season and gave her 59 career points passing Kelly Fazio (2003-06) to establish the school standard.
The Setters salted the game away in the 81st minute when this time Ferro delivered a through ball for sophomore Alyssa Zeoli who beat the keeper to the loose ball just inside the top of the 18-yard area and touched it home. For Zeoli, the goal was her 13th of the season and tied Fazio's mark from 2005 for the most single-season goals in Pace history.
Setters goalkeepers also rose to the challenge as the combination of freshmen Lauren DeSousa and Aisha Chauhan made seven saves in total.
Pace heads out on the road for their next two matches first traveling to Franklin Pierce on Friday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.
