St. Davids, Penn. - Freshman forward Gennifer Vandeventer (Manorville, N.Y.) scored the game-winning goal for Eastern with 1:48 remaining as the Eagles earned a 2-1 non-conference victory over Farmingdale State.

The Rams (4-5) responded less than four minutes later with an Alena Gannon (North Babylon, N.Y.) goal to tie the game at 1-1. The Rams held a 4-3 shot advantage in the first half.

With 1:48 remaining in regulation, Vandeventer's unassisted score led Eastern University to the 2-1 victory.
