Cardinals tie school record for wins Oct. 9, 2002

WASHINGTON - Sophomore Stephanie Hare (Atlanta, Ga./Hingham) scored with less than ten minutes in regulation to help Catholic extend its win streak to five games, as the Cardinals defeated Wesley 2-1 on Wednesday afternoon. The win was the ninth of the season for Catholic, tying the school record set in 1987, when the Cardinals went 9-8, and 1991, when the Cardinals went 9-6-2.

Despite outshooting the Wolverines early on, Catholic could not get on the scoreboard. The Cardinals registered 25 shots to Wesley's seven for the game.

Catholic (8-2) thought it had a 1-0 lead late in the first half as sophomore Jenny Aspinwall (Chantilly, Va./Chantilly) scored what would have been her team-leading 14th goal, but a handball was called before the shot attempt, thus nullifying the goal.

Wesley (4-7) would go ahead 1-0 just two minutes into the second half when Danielle Sacchetti's free kick from 25 yards out beat CUA keeper Rachel Glennon (Altamont, N.Y./Guilderland). Glennon would settle down and post four saves on the day.

After a constant barrage of shots, the Cardinals were able to tie the game in the 75th minute when freshman Laura Kaye (Annandale, Va./Bishop Ireton) dribbled in the box and used a trick shot to score her ninth goal of the year.

Hare's goal came in the 81st minute, as her shot from the left side of the goal was able to beat Wolverine goalie Erin Chiarulli. Junior Lia DeGisi (Medford, N.J./Merion Mercy Academy) assisted on the game-winner.

Chiarulli finished with 17 saves for Wesley.
