Hamilton, N.Y. | Tyler's Field
Saint Louis opened its 2018 campaign on a positive note Friday, defeating LIU Brooklyn 2-0 thanks to second-half goals by Mimi Leonard and Lili Wareham.
It marked the first time since 2006 that the Billikens (1-0) won their season opener.
After a scoreless first half, the Billikens tallied twice in the second to take command. Leonard started the scoring in the 50th minutes when she put one past the LIU goalie off an assist from Erica Bondoc.
A little more than 10 minutes later, Wareham provided an insurance goal when she converted a pass from Carly Kissinger.
The Billikens out-shot LIU Brooklyn 14-12. SLU goalie Sasha Sander made five saves for the shutout.
