The Lenoir-Rhyne Women's Soccer Team (11-3-1, 7-1-1) celebrated Senior Day in fine fashion with a 3-1 win over Newberry (8-7, 5-5) Saturday afternoon at the Moretz Sports - Athletic Complex.

L-R, ranked No. 11 in NCAA Division II and first in the Southeast Regional Poll, received two goals from senior forward Ariel Dominguez (Annapolis, Md.) and improved to 8-0 at home this year.

The Bears have also won 24 consecutive South Atlantic Conference Regular Season matches at home dating back to the 2009 season.

L-R sophomore midfielder Garcelle Alequine (Wilmington, Del.) opened the scoring with her team-leading eighth goal of the season in the 21st minute.

Alequine finished off a shot off the crossbar by sophomore midfielder Emmi Dunn (Reading, Pa.), who was credited with the assist.

Dominguez gave the Bears a 2-0 advantage at the 27:35 mark of the first half after heading in a shot which started on a corner kick. The play was double-assisted by sophomore defender Lizzie McNamara (Naples, Fla.) and junior defender Hanna Kiebel (Parker, Colo.).

Dominguez rounded out the scoring in the 55th minute while Newberry sandwiched a goal between Dominguez's two scores courtesy of Jessica Will (Leesville, S.C.).

Lenoir-Rhyne junior goalkeeper Genny Little (Fredericksburg, Va.) improved to 10-1 on the season after earning the victory. Little made a save for the Bears, who held a 28-4 advantage in shots taken in the win.

Newberry's Rebecca Darley (Wolcott, Conn.) suffered the loss in goal despite tallying nine saves on the afternoon. The Wolves were also handed their third consecutive loss.
