Freshman Katie Hohmann scored her first career goal and junior goalkeeper Ali Viola posted her second shutout of the season to lead the Youngstown State women's soccer team to a 1-0 win over Buffalo on Tuesday afternoon at Stambaugh Stadium.
The Guins improve to 3-0 for the first time in school history while Buffalo falls to 1-2-1 on the season.
Hohmann collected a rebounded shot from teammate Chelsey Haney and planted a shot in the back of the net for the match's only goal at the 36:20 mark of the first half.
Hohmann also became the fifth different player to score a goal for the Guins this season.
Viola posted a season-high nine save, including a game-clinching, diving save after a header by Buffalo's Kristin Markiewicz that nearly tied the match.
Viola, who moved into a tie for third all-time with four career shutouts, face a barrage of attacks from the Bulls - a total of 18 shots, including five shots on goal in the first half and four in the second half.
The Guins host Canisius, Friday, Aug. 31, at 3 p.m.
