LIVONIA, Mich. – Kathryn Gordon scored the game-winner for No. 19 Siena Heights women's soccer in a 2-0  victory over Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference foe Madonna in the first conference game of the season, on Saturday.

Eastman led the Saints with three shots, all on frame. Kelly Capoccia took five shots for Madonna (3-2-2, 0-1-1), two being in frame.

Taylor Hill earned the win, making three saves in the net for Siena Heights. For Madonna, Julia Stewart stopped six shots.

The Saints outshot Madonna, 13-9, while Madonna held a 6-3 corner kick advantage.

Next up, SHU (5-2-2, 1-0) will take on WHAC opponent Concordia on Wednesday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. in Ann Arbor, Mich.
