Women's Soccer Routs Robert Morris 4-0 On Senior Day
Sophomore Jen Mulvey (Manalapan, NJ) scored twice in the first half as the SHU women's soccer team cruised to a 4-0 victory Sunday afternoon at Campus Field in the final home regular season home game of 2010. Senior Alex Mack (Freeport, ME) supplied two assists as all six graduating seniors were honored before kick-off. The Pioneer women's soccer class of 2010 includes Mack, Meghan Reichelt (Selden, NY), Jasmine Rodriguez (Clinton, CT), Leigh Dogmanits (Walnutport, PA), Lindsay Elliott (Orange, CT), and Jillian Goodwin (Hampden, MA).
Sacred Heart (8-5-4, 4-2-2 NEC) broke onto the scoreboard just eight minutes after the opening whistle. Ashley Moore (Levittown, NY) sent a through ball up the middle of the field and Mulvey beat RMU keeper Jessica Olin for her second marker of 2010. Mulvey got her third of the year 20:34 later as she headed in a corner kick swung in by reigning adidas/NEC defensive player of the week Alyssa Brandofino (East Northport, NY). The Pioneers padded the lead to 3-0 2:04 before halftime as Mack made a nice pass up the right sideline to Amanda Stiles (Miller Place, NY). Stiles made a nice move to cut into the middle of the field and ripped a shot into the left side netting, her fourth tally of the season.
Robert Morris (5-10-2, 2-5-1 NEC) managed just two shots on goal in the contest, both of which were turned away by Reichelt. The SHU senior netminder picked up the 19th shutout of her career in her final home game. Sacred Heart outshot the Colonials 22-8 for the day and took 10 corner kicks to one for Robert Morris. Mikaela Wolf (Northport, NY) capped the scoring off with her first collegiate goal with 17:33 remaining in regulation. The sophomore rose above the pack and headed in a corner taken by Mack to bring the game to its 4-0 final.
The women's soccer team has two games remaining in 2010 as they fight for a berth in the Northeast Conference tournament. SHU takes on Quinnipiac Friday, October 29 at 2:00 pm and Central Connecticut State Sunday, October 31 at 1:00 pm.
