SCRANTON, Pa. - Senior midfielder Erica Licari scored the game-winning goal and sophomore midfielder Corinne McDonald as The University of Scranton women's soccer handled Moravian, 2-0, in a Landmark Conference semifinal on Tuesday night at Weiss Field.

The victory advances the top-seeded Royals (15-1-2) to Saturday's championship match against second-seeded Susquehanna at 1 p.m. at Weiss Field. The River Hawks (13-3-2) advanced with a 2-0 win over Catholic on Tuesday night.

Scranton took control midway through the first half and dominated for a majority of the night. Licari broke the ice in the 19th minute when she headed home a cross from freshman forward Steph Lowrey for her sixth goal of the season and second in the last four days.

McDonald doubled the lead in the 26th minute on a mirror image play from Licari's opening goal. Sophomore midfielder Mazie Stiles got free on the left wing and sent in a cross that McDonald headed into the net for her second goal of the season.

From there, the Royals' defense took over, posting its 12th shutout of the season. Senior goalkeeper Colleen Berry needed just to make just one save, but it was one of her best of the season. In the 69th minute, Moravian (9-5-2) created some pressure in the box and got a shot off from close in. Berry dove full out to her left to save the shot, which appeared ticketed for the far right corner of the goal.

Scranton finished the game with a 17-2 edge in shots and 8-2 in corner kicks. Lowrey took a team-high three shots as 10 different Royals registered at least on attempt.

Licari's goal gives her 21 for her career, tied for 18th in program history. Her 59 career points are ranked 19th in team history. McDonald's goal was her sixth of the season and 10th of her career. Stiles now has a team-high six assists, one more than Lowrey. Berry's shutout was her eighth of the season and 21st of her career, tied for sixth in team history.

Scranton will be aiming for its third straight Landmark Conference title and seventh in the conference's 12-year history. It is also the Royals' ninth straight appearance in the conference championship.
