The Ramapo College women’s soccer team captured its first victory of the season on Saturday, Oct. 23. The game ended with the Roadrunners shutting out the New Jersey City University Gothic Knights by a score of 5-0. 

With it being Senior Day for the team, it was a fitting time for senior forward Carla Goodwin to have an incredible performance, tallying a season high in goals with four on the day. She also had season-highs in both shots and shots on goal, with eight and six respectively.

Goodwin’s great day started early, scoring in just the 19th minute of action on a pass from fellow senior Lauren Vladyka. Just 10 minutes later, she scored yet another goal, this one assisted by midfielder Cammie Plage. These goals were the only ones of the half, putting Ramapo up by a score of 2-0 heading into the second half. 

In the 46th minute, it was the senior connection striking once again, with Goodwin putting another pass from Vladyka in the back of the net for her third goal of the game. Her fourth goal came another 10 minutes later on an assist from sophomore Sam Ingannamorte.

Vladyka put the finishing touches on her strong day, scoring her third goal of the season in the 78th minute. Ashley Agrillo was credited with the assist. This goal put Ramapo up 5-0, the eventual final score.

It was a dominating day from start to finish for the Roadrunners. They outshot NJCU 20-11 overall, including a 12-9 advantage in terms of shots on goal. Not only that, but they also led with five corner kicks to NJCU’s three. 

Contributing to this dominating win was junior goalie Emma Conlan, who posted nine saves in the entire 90 minutes of action. For NJCU, Angie Paz had five saves in about 59 minutes while Cidney Lee-Sam collected one in the last 31.

Because it was Senior Day, Ramapo honored its 10 seniors prior to the game, including Goodwin, Vladyka and Plage. Also playing their final seasons with the team are Sarah Tomasello, Gianna Enea, Maisie Jelley, Paige Siegel, Katie Gwiazdowski, Katie Dara and Amanda Gouldsbury. Congratulations and good luck to the Ramapo senior class.
