Laliberte leads Plymouth past Lyndon

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Sam Laliberte scored two goals as the Plymouth State University women's soccer team broke a five-game winless streak with a 4-0 non-conference victory over Lyndon at Panther Field.
           
Amy Green and Charlotte Miller also scored goals for the Panthers. Panther goalies Angelina LaBroad and Courtney Lins combined on the shutout, each playing one half and making two saves.
           
The match was scoreless for 31 minutes until Laliberte put the Panthers on the board. Cassie Graham took a shot that Lyndon goalie Samantha Smith (North Haverhill, N.H.) deflected off the cross bar, and Laliberte knocked the rebound into the back of the net for a 1-0 lead. Six minutes later, Green redirected a corner kick from Shannon Snively from along the right baseline and into the goal for a 2-0 Panther lead at the half.
          
Laliberte added her second of the game just two minutes into the second half, again knocking in a rebound after several good saves by Smith. Miller, who assisted on Laliberte's second goal, finished off the Panther scoring four minutes later with her first of the season. Smith was solid in the Hornets goal, finishing with 13 saves, as Plymouth finished the contest with a 27-6 advantage in shots.
