BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – The Bryn Athyn College women's soccer team will look to build off its season-opening victory with a pair of road games against Juniata and Penn State Altoona on Friday and Saturday.

  1. Allie Warren recorded the shutout with a four-save performance in the opener against Penn State Abington. It was the 11th shutout in Warren's career. The shutout victory was the second time in program history that Bryn Athyn opened the season by blanking its opponent. In 2017, Bryn Athyn opened the season with back-to-back shutouts.
  2. Taylor DiJoseph scored her first collegiate goal in the 89th minute against the Nittany Lions. She is the fourth Lion in program history to score in her collegiate debut, joining Janalene Phillips in 2017 and Ashley Rivera and Tori Titano in 2018. DiJoseph is also the fourth Bryn Athyn women's soccer player to score on her first career shot attempt. Shelby Puccio, Shauna Breen, and Rivera also accomplished the feat.
  3. Jissed Rosero Alegria notched her second career goal, the match-winner, in Friday's win. Bryn Athyn is 2-0-0 in games where Rosero Alegria has a goal. Her first goal came in a 12-0 win over Penn State Lehigh Valley on Sept. 13, 2018.
  4. The Lions will attempt to win back-to-back road games for the second time in program history. The first time Bryn Athyn won consecutive road games was in 2017 when the Lions won at Clarks Summit (Sept. 9), Gallaudet (Sept. 23), and Penn State Abington (Sept. 26).
  5. Bryn Athyn is facing both Juniata and Penn State Altoona for the first time in program history. Juniata is the first opponent that the Lions will face from the Landmark Conference.
