Dani Kabat

A strong defensive effort and a timely goal from senior captain Dani Kabat helped Delaware shut out James Madison, 1-0, in CAA women’s soccer on Sunday afternoon.

Delaware (1-1 CAA, 6-5 overall) has now held 13 of its past 16 opponents to one goal or fewer dating back to the end of the 2018 campaign.

Kabat netted her second game-winner in the past three contests when she took a pass from sophomore Sara D’Appolonia just past the midfield line. She sped past a defender on the left side and rocketed a shot into the top of the net from 20 yards out to give Delaware a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute.

Stony Brook 5, Delaware State 0: Goalie Fabrea McCray (Indian River) made 11 saves for the Hornets (11-0) in the loss.
