Long Beach State Women’s Soccer Beats Hawaii

Lena Silano, Kayla Cannon and Alyssa Reyes scored for Long Beach State women’s soccer in a 3-1 win over Hawaii on Sunday night at George Allen Field.

Silano opened the scoring off a Maddy Perez corner kick in the 18th minute for her seventh goal of the season. Silano is now threatening Nadia Link’s single season record of 16 goals set in 2011.

The game-winning goal came in the 78th minute as Kayla Cannon got out in front of the defense and sent a rocket near-post to beat the keeper. The pass down field came from Daria Petredes in her first game back after missing the last seven games due to injury.
