Harrisonburg, Va. -- Senior forward Keri Sarvers breakaway goal 7:39 into the second half lifted No. 24 Maryland to a 1-0 victory over James Madison at JMU Soccer Field here tonight. The goal marked Sarvers team leading 13th of the season and her team-leading third game-winning goal of the year.
Maryland improves to 7-4-0 with the victory while James Madison falls to 7-4-1. Maryland has won six of its last seven games.
Sarver gathered in a feed from senior defender Abby Bausman and outran the Dukes defense for a breakaway against goalkeeper Beth Manghi. She swiftly deposited the ball past Manghi for what turned out to be the game-winning goal. The assist was Bausmans career-high third of the season.
