AMHERST, Mass. - The University of Massachusetts women's soccer team (3-7-1, 2-3-0 Atlantic 10) fell to Atlantic 10 foe Dayton, 1-0 at Rudd Field, Sunday, Oct. 12.

The game-winning goal was scored in the 43rd minute of play by Tesia Kozlowski. Reba Sedlacek played the ball into the box, where a streaking Kozlowski gathered it and shot it past diving UMass sophomore goalkeeper Kristen Rutland (Fayetteville, Ga.). Katie Lowstutter was also credited with an assist on the play.

Kozlowski's goal was the only one the Flyers would need, as the rest of the game remained scoreless. Massachusetts had several scoring chances, but could not find the net, as they put only three shots on goal, of the 10 total shots they took.

Senior goalkeeper Kelly Nigh (Seattle, Wash.) started the game in net for the Minutewomen, but went down with an injury in the 32nd minute. Prior to the injury, she had made three saves. Rutland, her replacement, ended the game with three stops of her own. Dayton goalkeeper Sarah West also made three saves.

Dayton held the edge in shots at 13-10 and corner kicks at 6-4, while UMass led in fouls, 6-4. The Flyers improve to 7-4-1, 4-1-0 in the Atlantic 10 with the win..

UMass will be in action next on Friday, Oct. 17, when they travel to LaSalle. Kickoff is slated for 3:00 p.m.
