Box Score

AMHERST, Mass. - Sophomore midfielder Moa Mattsson recorded her team-leading eighth goal of the season at Saint Joseph's on Friday evening; however, UMass women's soccer faltered, 2-1 at Finnesey Field in Philadelphia, Pa. Mattsson now owns 19 points on the 2012 campaign, while freshman Jen Coppola notched her first collegiate assist against the Hawks.

Saint Joseph's (7-5-2 overall, 2-1-1 Atlantic 10) opened scoring in the 34th minute as Mo Hawkins slotted an attempt into the upper-left quadrant from the top of the box. Kersten Formento added the second Hawks tally in the 75th minute, knocking home a close-range attempt following a scramble in front of the UMass net.

Mattsson's attempt came during the final minute of play. Coppola controlled possession and sent a pass to Mattsson at the top of the right side of the box, with the sophomore from Uppsala, Sweden, firing an attempt into the left corner at the 89:54 mark.

UMass led the Hawks in shots, 8-4 and fouls, 5-3. Neither team recorded a corner kick while senior goalkeeper Emily Cota stopped a pair of attempts in net for the Minutewomen. Saint Joseph's goalie Christine Neal allowed Mattsson's goal at the end of regulation without recording a save during the contest.

The Minutewomen continue their season on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 1 p.m. at Temple.
