NORTON, Mass. - Wheaton College women's soccer head coach Luis Reis earned his 400th career win on Thursday night, as the Lyons defeated visiting Lasell College 2-0 at Christina Mirrione '99 Stadium.

With the win Wheaton moves to 9-5-1 on the season, while Lasell falls to 8-4-5 overall. Reis is now 400-101-37 in his career, having spent the last 19 seasons at Wheaton and five previous seasons as the head men's soccer coach at Bridgewater State.

After a relatively quiet first half of action, Wheaton finally got on the board with a goal by Caren McCarthy in the 69th minute. Playing the ball over the top from the right flank, senior Julia Cipriano found an oncoming McCarthy, who chested the ball into the net.

Cipriano netted a goal of her own five minutes later with an assist from sophomore Megan Healy. Collecting the ball in the midfield, Healy played a perfect through ball to Cipriano, who dribbled past three defenders. The senior calmly pulled the Lasell keeper off her line and slipped the ball past her into the far post netting.

Lasell's best shot at goal came in the final two minutes of action as Devon Day and Sarah Jones got off two shots that both forced saves by the Lyon keeper.

Wheaton outshot Lasell 15-6 but the two sides were deadlocked in corners with two each.

Senior Taylor Wilson earned her first win of the season, coming up with six saves in 90 minutes of action. Sarah LaClair picked up the loss for Lasell after seeing 76 minutes between the pipes.

The Lyons return to the pitch on Saturday, Oct. 17 at Mount Holyoke for a New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) contest. The match is set to begin at 12 p.m.
