GIBSON’S HEADER SENDS MONMOUTH PAST SETON HALL


SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – Madie Gibson's header in the 19thminute proved to be the difference in the Monmouth University women's soccer team's victory over Seton Hall on Monday evening at Owen T. Carroll Field. The Hawks set up Gibson's game winner with a nice bit of passing, starting with freshman midfielder Jill Conklin. The rookie sent a pass toward the endline for senior Alli DeLuca, who sent a one-timed right footed cross into the center of the penalty area. Gibson rose above her defender and headed the service inside the far post. Goalkeeper Amanda Knaub posted her third shutout of the season and was credited with one save, a stop she made early in the first half.
