On Saturday, Stonehill hosted Adelphi on Skyhawk Field and following 110 minutes of play, the two teams ended in a draw, the Skyhawks' second of the season. This is the third-straight year that the two teams have played in an overtime match together with the record now standing 1-1-1 in the three years. Following a very defensive first half, the Panthers found the back of the net in the 55th minute, and Stonehill responded in the 67th minute as Nicole Geraghty evened the score at one, 1-1, as Henry collected her fifth assist of the year and 12th of her career.
In late September, Henry was tabbed NE10 Player of the Week for the first time as she scored two goals and registered two assists in a 2-0 week for the Skyhawks including a 4-1 win over No. 18 Franklin Pierce University and a 3-1 win over Le Moyne College.
Stonehill (10-3-2, 7-1-2 NE10) travels to Pleasantville, New York for a NE10 battle as they battle Pace University on Wednesday, October 30 with a start time of 7:00 p.m. at Pace Stadium.
