CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Morrisville State College women's soccer team posted a season high seven goals Saturday afternoon as they downed host Wilson College by a 7-1 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) final in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
The win lifts Morrisville State to 5-8-1 on the season, an impressive 5-2-1 NEAC campaign. Wilson fall sot 0-15, 0-7 in conference action.
Senior Kelly Brennan (Sauquoit, N.Y.) put the Mustangs on the board early, rifling the ball sent to the middle from Jessica Adam (Avoca, N.Y.) past the Wilson goalkeeper for the score a mere three minutes in.
After a Wilson tally in the 19th minute tied the contest at one, Morrisville State freshman Jade Shimer (Canastota, N.Y.) posted back to back tallies within three minutes of one another to regain the lead for the visitors.
Shimer's tally at the 38:17 mark regained the one goal lead for the Mustangs, as she collected the score on a deflection off the keeper, before gathering the ball at the 41:03 mark in the middle to put the ball inside the left corner and send the game into the break with a 3-1 Morrisville State advantage.
In similar fashion as the opening half, Brennan struck again early, this time just over two minutes into the second, juking the Wilson keeper for her second of the day, before Adam collected one of her own off a feed from Shimer to the left in the 50th minute.
Shimer collected her third of the day for the hat trick in the 61st minute, collecting the rebound off the cross bar to put home the ball inside the left of the post.
Elizabeth Brenchley (Cincinnatus, N.Y.) rounded out all scoring for the Mustangs in the 88th minute as her corner kick made its way inside the right post for the seventh and final visitor tally.
Morrisville State held the commanding 23-5 advantage in shots on the day, and 14-0 benefit in corner kicks.
Brianna Sorriento (Wynantskill, N.Y.) recorded the win in net, collecting two saves in the first half of play before being replaced by Brooke Terrier (Hubbardsville, N.Y.) for the second half. Terrier made one save for the Mustangs.
