LEWISTON – A member of the Niagara University women’s soccer team who banged her head on a goal post was airlifted Sunday from campus to Erie County Medical Center, Buffalo, where she was in stable condition, according to the university.

Olivia Wood, a senior from Port Rowan, Ont., and goalkeeper on the team, was hurt during pregame warm-ups before Niagara’s match against Duquesne University, said Thomas J. Burns, a university spokesman.

Campus public safety, the Upper Mountain Fire Company and Lewiston police responded. Wood suffered a concussion but was expected to be discharged from the hospital Sunday night, Burns said.
