ST. LOUIS, MO - Senior Dara Rosen posted her first goal of the season in the 82nd minute of the 2-1 loss to Saint Louis University, Friday evening in Atlantic 10 conference play.
Rosen, scoring her seventh career goal, put a cross from Sierra Smidinger into the far post while Saint Louis' goalkeeper Amber Zdanovec was in the game.
