PITTSBURGH --- Freshman Natalie
DiGiorno (Bethel Park, Pa.) scored a hat trick for
the Carlow University women's soccer team in a 3-1 win over Brescia
(Ky.) University Thursday at Cupples Stadium.
DiGiorno scored her first goal just minutes into the game from
way outside the 18 - a shot that sailed over Brescia goalkeeper
Savannah Jackson's head. Erin Thompson (FR/Bethel
Park, Pa.) picked up the assist.
Brescia (2-15, 0-9 RSC) evened the score in the 20th
minute off the rebound from a free kick opportunity.
DiGiorno sailed another shot over the goalkeeper's head in the
35th minute to send Carlow (4-8-5, 2-2-5 RSC) into
the locker room at halftime ahead, 2-1.
DiGiorno's final goal came late in the second half (82') on a
misplayed shot that bounced over Brescia goalkeeper Brooke Stiles'
head and dribbled into the net.
Brescia's only shot on goal was the goal at 20'. The Celtics
out-shot the Bearcats, 26-4.
