Cougars Shutout Ramapo, 4-0

Union, N.J. (9/25/07)- Sophomore Brittany Gibbs (West Deptford, N.J.) tallied two goals, including the game-winner, as Kean University shutout Ramapo College, 4-0, in New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) action Tuesday night at Kean Alumni Stadium.

The Cougars (5-3, 1-1 NJAC) used a balanced attack recording two goals in each half on their way to their first NJAC win of the season.  Kean held a 12-3 advantage in shots and edged Ramapo (3-5, 1-1 NJAC), 8-6, in penalty corners.

Gibbs got things going just over six minutes into the game as she tallied an unassisted goal.  Freshman Amie Hoch (Egg Harbor Twp., N.J.) gave Kean a 2-0 lead off a pass from junior Katie McGee (Cherry Hill, N.J.).  In the second half junior Stephanie Cirino (Warminster, Pa.) recorded Kean's third goal at 50:55 off another assist from McGee in a penalty corner situation.  The Cougars rounded out the scoring with Gibbs' second goal of the game off an assist from Cirino just over a minute later.

Sophomore Jenni Barry (Berkeley Heights, N.J.) registered two saves for the Cougars while freshman Diana Silva (Howell, N.J.) and sophomore Megan Tierney (Wayne, N.J.) combined for five saves in the loss for the Roadrunners.

Kean returns to action on Saturday, September 29th as they travel to western Pennsylvania to take on St. Vincent College at 11:30 a.m.
