Danielle Schulmann, Women's Soccer
Sophomore Danielle Schulmann guided the women's soccer team to its first BIG EAST victory of the season, posting a goal and assist in a 2-1 triumph against Syracuse on Saturday night. Schulmann began the scoring in the 33rd minute when she tallied her fourth goal of the year. Junior Nicki Gross sent a corner kick to sophomore Ashley Beamish who passed the ball into the box finding Schulmann for the shot from two yards out. Schulmann also set up the game winning tally in the 86th minute of the contest after pickeing up the ball and dribbling around two Syracuse defenders before feeding a pass to Stephanie Soma. Soma's shot from 16-yards beat Orange goalkeeper Eliza Bennett-Hattan for the game-winner.
