BALTIMORE, Md. – The Greensboro College women’s soccer team ran their winning streak to four games to open the season Saturday with a victory of Notre Dame of Maryland University, 10-0.
Meredith Priest recorded her third goal of the season to get the Pride on the board first in the sixth minute.
Three minutes later, Priest struck once again to extend the lead to 2-0.
Greensboro then held on to the two-goal advantage for the next 10 minutes before Carleigh Roach beat the Gators keeper to extend the Greensboro lead to 3-0.
Following Roach’s goal, the Pride outscored Notre Dame of Maryland 3-0 over the final 29 minutes of the half to take a 6-0 halftime lead. Mary Lowe tallied two goals during the run, while Angela Niles added the other.
Greensboro then struck for four more goals in the second half to secure the 10-goal victory. Mercedes Fisher, Niles, Alexis Chase and Alexa Rehling each had one goal.
“I was happy with the way the girls played today,” Head Coach Gus Mota said. “We still have some areas that we need to work on to get better but we are playing together as a team.
“We will continue to take it one game at a time as we get ready for another game tomorrow against Keystone College.”
Greensboro outshot the Gators 30-2 and held a 18-1 advantage in shots on goal. Brittany Morrison picked up her second consecutive win in goal for the Pride, while Kelsey Emrich played the final 45 minutes in goal.
The Pride women will return to action at 1 p.m. Sunday when they play Keystone College at Norte Dame of Maryland University. For more information on Greensboro College women’s soccer, continue to follow www.greensborocollegesports.com.
