Engineers Hold On for 1-0 Win over UMass Dartmouth

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA - Junior forward Alisha Lussiez scored the only goal of the match to lead visiting MIT to a 1-0 victory over the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's soccer team in a non-conference match at the UMass Dartmouth Athletic Complex Tuesday.

Lussiez converted a pass from sophomore midfielder Stephanie Cooke and chipped home a short shot with 38 seconds left in the first half. The Corsairs were unable to tie the score against MIT sophomore goalkeeper Meghan Wright, who made four saves to earn her third shutout of the season.

The Engineers outshot the Corsairs, 20-8, putting eleven shots on net. UMass Dartmouth senior goalkeeper Tanya Braga made 10 saves.

MIT improved to 4-1 with the victory and will visit Clark on Saturday in their first NEWMAC game. The Corsairs (2-3) will return to action when they host RIC Saturday.
