The 17th ranked University of Mary Washington caged four goals in each half in defeating visiting Randolph-Macon College, 8-0, on Thursday evening at the Battleground. UMW snaps a three game skid and improves to 6-4 on the season.
UMW opened the scoring just 4:09 into the contest, as senior Allegra Massey-Elim connected on a Meredith LeBel assist on a penalty corner. Then, 1:27 later, Massey-Elim scored again, this time on a pass from sophomore Lexie Dixson, to up the UMW advantage to 2-0. Junior Morgan LaRowe connected on an unassisted tally off a saved shot at 20:10 to push the lead to 3-0, and sophomore Lauren Hopkins scored on a Bella Urcia assist.
In the second half, freshman Izzy Scholz scored unassisted eight minutes into the frame, and junior Alaina Shivers connected on a pair of back to back goals. Shivers' first came at 59:23, and the next came at 65:03, and both were unassisted. Junior Shelby Press capped the scoring on a rebound off a shot that hit the goal post at 68:52.
The Eagles led in shots, 35-1, as well as in penalty corners, 10-0. UMW goalkeepers Jessica Cavolt and Ivy Hollander split time in goal to register the shutout. Kelsey Stanley had 13 saves for RMC, with Ariel Salerno adding two in relief.
