UMW Women's Soccer Blanks Guilford, 3-0 Behind Freshman Attack

The University of Mary Washington women's soccer team used three goals and three assists from freshmen in a 3-0 win over Guilford College on Sunday at the Battleground. The Eagles improve to 4-0 on the season.

The Eagles opened the scoring at 19:18, when freshman Michelle Gibbons scored on a Sydney Cook assist. Three minutes later, Cook scored her second goal of the year on a pass from Jessica Bednarcik to up the lead to 2-0, which is where the score stood at halftime.

In the second half, the lone goal came at 59:00, as Bednarcik scored on an Adrian Newcomb assist.

The Eagles led in shots, 15-5, and had seven corner kicks to none for the Quakers. Charlotte Owens had four saves, and Alyssa Goodwin none in relief in goal for UMW.

The Eagles will return to action on Wednesday when they visit Methodist University at 4:30 p.m.
