Women’s soccer won in convincing fashion once again Sunday afternoon, as the Bulls beat Ohio, 3-0, to improve to 8-1 on the season and 2-0 in Mid-American Conference play. Sunday’s win marked not only UB’s sixth win in a row but its sixth straight shutout. The Bulls haven’t allowed a goal since Aug. 28 against then-No. 3 ranked Rutgers.
Senior defender Annie Judasz netted the Bulls’ first goal 29 minutes into the game off an assist from midfielder Alya Ruken. Freshman forward Arianna Zumpano followed that up with another goal 10 minutes later to give the Bulls a 2-0 advantage before the half. Zumpano wasn’t finished though, as she scored her second goal of the game at the 67-minute mark to put the Bulls up 3-0 and the game out of reach for Ohio.
Senior goalie Emily Kelly was sharp once again with another clean sheet. UB’s defense was also on point, as the Bobcats only mustered two shots on goal for the game. The Bulls outshot the Bobcats, 14-6, with a commanding 7-2 advantage in shots on goal. After another impressive showing, the team will return to play Thursday in Toledo, where they will take on the Rockets at 7 p.m.
