Junior Elena Rogers scored one goal and set up the game winner as St. Lawrence University's women's soccer team edged North Country rival 2-1 in a Liberty League women's soccer game in Potsdam on Saturday.
Rogers helped the Saints come from behind to improve to 9-6 overall on the season and 2-3 in league play.
Clarkson opened the scoring at the 24:13 mark of the first half when an attempted clear by the Saints was intercepted by Alex Petitti, who put a long shot to the near post for the game's first goal.
Rogers tied the game at the 41 minute mark when she took a pass from Betsy Lucas and rifled a hard shot from the top of the box which beat Clarkson goalie Stephanie Collins. It was the sixth goal of the year for Rogers.
Marcelle Justison scored the game winner 8:44 into the second half as Rogers sent a pass up the sideline and after a long run, Justison sent a low shot over the diving goalkeeper for her second goal of the year and the game winner.
"It was a North Country rivalry game at its finest," said Saint coach Franco Bari. "Clarkson came out really hard and with a lot of intensity, and I was really pleased with our composure. Both teams had several opportunities and while our finishing was a bit off, we were defensively solid and Elena sparked the offense."
The Saints outshot Clarkson 14-8 and had six corner kicks to none for the Knights. Abby van Geldern finished with four saves for SLU while Collins made six saves for Clarkson.
The Saints will return to Liberty League action with Saturday and Sunday home games against William Smith and Hamilton.
