Navy, the only unbeaten and untied team in the NCAA Division I women's ranks, extended its winning streak to a 19 in a row with a 1-0 victory over No. 10 Penn State Thursday night before a Glenn Warner Soccer Facility record crowd of 2,412

Sophomore Kristen Laraway's goal off a lead pass from captain Molly Burd in the 80th minute was the difference for the Mids, who posted their 10th consecutive shutout.

Penn State had a 16-10 edge in shots, but the Mids' defense led by goalie Lizzie Barnes held firm. Freshman Shelly Moeller played a stellar game at center back, heading out two balls that were making their way toward the net.

"Defense has been our staple for a long time," said Navy coach Carin Gabarra."I tell our team that it takes 11 people to defend and 10 to attack. Lizzie doesn't have to make a lot of saves because of how strong our defense is in front of her. Tonight, she stepped up and made some big-time saves."

Asked if this was the program's biggest win, Gabarra grinned and said, "I would say so. We've never beaten a Top 10 team."

Navy still hasn't clinched the Patriot League's regular-season crown, however. It needs to beat or tie Bucknell on Sunday to host the league tournament Nov. 3-5.
