JOHNSON CITY, TN -- The regular season ended in a microcosm of the rest of the season for the Florida Atlantic University women's soccer team, as they shut out conference foe ETSU 1-0 Sunday.
The Owls (14-3-1, 9-0-1) defense was dominating, allowing just three shots with only one reaching the keeper. They held a 21-3 advantage in shots, including a 12-2 advantage in the second-half.
Danielle DiLeo scored the game's lone goal, her seventh of the season in what was a career-best offensive season, in the 37th minute on a pass from Susanna Lehtinen. The assist gave Lehtinen 30 points on the year.
Coyne finishes the regular season with a goals-against average of 0.107, a remarkable accomplishment which leads the NCAA.
Badders finished the regular season with a GAA of 0.78 in one of the best freshman keeper campaigns in FAU history. She currently sits third among Atlantic Sun keepers in GAA.
The shutout was the Owls' 14th of the season, with every win coming via the shutout.
FAU must now wait to see who they will play in the A-Sun Championships set for Nov. 3-5. They earned a bye in the first-round as a result of having the best conference record.
