Leonardi sparks women's soccer to 1-1 draw with Temple
Aug. 19, 2012
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Freshman Aley Leonardi (Kennebunkport, Maine) netted her first collegiate goal, the game-tying goal, in the 69th minute as the Stony Brook women's soccer team played to a 1-1 draw against Temple on Sunday.
"There are a lot of positives to take out of this game as building blocks for the season, but also some things we still have to work on. I'm excited about the youth of our team with a freshman scoring her first goal today. At one point we had five freshmen on the field at the same time which really says a lot about that class and the future of our program. It was a strong statement for us to come back after a tough game on Friday, so we feel good about where we are as long as we keep moving forward from here."
-- Head Coach Sue Ryan
