Kelsey Caracciolo and Molly Jacobs probably wish the soccer season could go on for a few more months. Caracciolo scored her ninth goal of the season with less than five minutes to play and Jacobs recorded her eighth solo shutout of the season as the Piper women's soccer team capped the best year in school history with a 1-0 win at St. Catherine's Saturday.
Caracciolo, one of three seniors playing their last game for HU, ended the season tied with Aileen Scheibner for the team lead in scoring with nine goals each. Jacobs, who played all but 9:30 of the season, recorded four saves to extend her school record for wins (12) and shutouts (8) in a season.
Hamline finishes with an overall record of 12-5-1, the most wins in school history. They have won 22 games the past two seasons, the second best figure of all MIAC schools. Their 5-5-1 MIAC mark placed them in eighth place ... but just three out of the final playoff spot.
In addition to Caracciolo, it was the final game for Izzy Benjamin-Alvarado and Emily Stein.
