October 28, 2022

Nia Christopher and Leilanni Nesbeth continue their scoring streaks, with both Bermudian footballers scoring to help their college teams win.

Christopher’s goal marked her 13th of the season, while Nesbeth’s was the second-fastest goal of the season for her team. The two footballers are prolific goal scorers, and in an international match for Bermuda earlier this year, they combined to score a total of five goals against Grenada.

The school’s match report said, “The Towson University women’s soccer team earned their first win in program history in the CAA Tournament with a 2-1 win against four seed Elon on Thursday.

“Nia Christopher gave the Tigers an early 1-0 lead with Phoebe Canoles providing a second half tally for Towson [12-2-5] as they defeat Elon [9-6-3] to advance to the CAA Semifinals for the first time in program history.

“Nia Christopher led the Tigers with four shots. Phoebe Canoles added three shots, with all three going on goal.

“The Tigers broke through just minutes later. Nia Christopher took a turnover in the offensive end, got around a defender and slotted it home to put Towson in front 1-0 in the 22nd minute.

“Phoebe Canoles added the insurance goal in the 75th minute. She took a pass from Nia Christopher, made a move to the middle, and bent a shot into the top corner to give Towson a 2-0 lead.

“The Tigers would hold on for a 2-1 win against the Phoenix, picking up their first win the CAA Tournament in program history.”

Leilanni Nesbeth

The school’s match report said, “The No. 5 Florida State soccer team [12-2-2] closed off their regular season with a 4-1 win at home against Virginia Tech [10-6-2] on Thursday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Seminoles finished the regular season tied in points for first place in the ACC and will be a top-two seed at the ACC Tournament. FSU earned a share of its fifth ACC regular season championship.

“Florida State wasted no time getting on the scoreboard, scoring 61 seconds after the first whistle. The Hokies fouled Jenna Nighswonger about 30 yards out from the goal. Nighswonger stepped up to take the free kick, sending a lofted ball into a mass of players. Virginia Tech’s keeper was able to get a piece of the initial ball but failed to collect it, rebounding it to the foot of LeiLanni Nesbeth. Nesbeth redirected the rebound into the back of the net, scoring the second-fastest goal of the season for the Seminoles.”
