Ramirez's Career Day Boosts Women's Soccer to 7-1 Taming of Lincoln Lions Saturday

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. (Sept. 15, 2018) - One goal was not enough for junior forward Victoria Ramirez of the Queens College women's soccer team.

Three goals weren't enough either.

Ramirez put home four goals on Saturday (Sept. 15) to help lead the Knights to a 7-1 victory over Lincoln (PA) as Queens picked up its first win of the season and its first conference victory as well. The Lions fell to 0-5 on the year and were soundly defeated in their East Coast Conference debut.

The Knights pounded the goal with 35 shots, while Lincoln mustered just nine attempts at the net. Guro Eriksen opened the scoring in the tenth minute and Shannon Gibbons and Vincenza DeCrescenzo also scored goals for the Knights in the victory.

Ramirez's first marker came after Eriksen's goal, and all of her goals had the same theme: chips over the head of the Lions' keeper from deep. Assists came from Adriana Mendrinos, Meyah Romeo, Nicole Abalco and Christina Loizou. Shenae Kreps played the first half and earned her first career collegiate victory with two saves in the win. Nikoletta Pravata saw the field in the second half and made a save in her first action of the season.

Queens will head to Bentley on Thursday (Sept. 20) for a 3 p.m. showdown with the Falcons.
