Cal State East Bay concluded its non-conference schedule on the road Sunday, September 8 following a 3-0 defeat to Notre Dame de Namur. The Pioneers fell victim to two goals off set plays and a third in the final 15 minutes to seal the game.
NDNU (2-1-0) senior Adriana Cortes scored the game's opening goal just over seven minutes after the opening whistle. An East Bay (0-2-0) foul provided a free kick from 20 yards out and Cortes scored her first of two goals on the day.
Cortes has scored five goals over the Argonauts first three games this season. She also provided an assist on the other score to teammate Massiel Castellanos in the 64th minute.
East Bay goalkeeper Donna Williams was kept busy in her season debut. She faced 11 shots on goal and made a game-high eight saves. Argonauts netminder Amy Rich made three stops to earn her first solo shutout of the year.
CSUEB fired off 10 shots in the game with eight coming in the first half. Three were on target with one each coming from Danielle Cummings, Ariana Gordon, and Sara Yamasaki.
