Toledo scored a goal in each half and limited Canisius to one shot in a 2-0 victory over the Golden Griffins on Sunday in a nonleague women's soccer game in Toledo, Ohio.
Junior Hanna Scafaria scored in the the 25th minute for the Rockets and Sophie Pohl chipped in a goal in the 49th minute after Regan Price beat the Canisius defense at the end line. Price shot at the net and Pohl was there to complete the play.
Last time Canisius (1-1) was held to one shot or less was in a 3-0 loss to Quinnipiac last season. Melanie Linsmair had the lone Canisius shot. Toledo controlled the match from the start and fired 12 shots with six on goal.
"We're disappointed at the effort. We feel that we had our spots, but we didn't play up to our full potential. Some played well, while others didn't. But, overall, we just didn't play well as an entire team," Canisius coach Todd Clark said. "We're on the road and we needed to play hard. We had our opportunities… for a two nothing loss, I was actually pleased with the defensive effort, but it was still a sloppy game all around… we've won one game and lost one; one due to talent and one due to lack of effort… going forward, we need to find our motivation and translate that into effort for the rest of the season."
Next for Canisius will be the University at Buffalo at 7 p.m. on Aug. 29 at the Demske Sports Complex.
