PURCHASE, N.Y. -- It did not take Purchase freshman Nathalie Lavelanet long to make her presence felt in her college soccer debut, Saturday. Lavelanet, a 2011 John Jay-Cross River graduate, scored three minutes into the game, fueling Purchase to a 2-0 win over visiting City College of New York in the Panthers season-opener. Abigail Katz assisted in Lavelanets first college goal and scored later in the first half, assisted by Ariel Dugan. Goalie Kristen Racaniello handled four shots to earn the shutout.
