Oct. 17, 2000
EASTON, Pa. (www.lafayette.edu) - Lafayette used five first-half goals to roll to a 10-1 win over St. Peter's in non-conference women's soccer action on Tuesday.
Sophomore forward Emily Myers (Hershey, Pa./Hershey) scored the first two goals of the game (11:22, 14:25) on tap ins after crossing passes.
The 9-6 Leopards never looked back. Freshman Kristen Quigley (Philadelphia, Pa./Nazareth Academy) added another Lafayette score at 22:29 on a blast from 25 yards out to give Lafayette a 3-0 lead.
St. Peter's got on the board at 23:05. Danielle Reid booted in a ball that had come loose from Lafayette keeper Ashley Wesmiller (Pittsburgh, Pa/Mt. Lebanon) to make it 3-1.
It was all Lafayette from there on out. Just over a minute after St. Peter's lone goal, Myers scored her third goal on a shot from 10 yards out that eluded the St. Peter's keeper. The hat trick is Myers' second of the season, the first coming at Niagara on Sept. 26.
At 33:52 freshman Jen Gsell (Rumson, N.J./Rumson-Fair Haven) netted her first collegiate goal and the team's fifth of the half when she collected a loose ball in the box and knocked it home.
The second half was more of the same dominance for the Leopards. Freshman Kerrie Kiley (Greenlawn, N.Y./St. Anthony's), senior Emily Josephson (Randolph, N.J./Randolph) and sophomore Briana Rinchiuso (Norwell, Mass./Norwell) each tallied goals at 53:27, 54:54 and 55:21, respectively. Freshman Miriam Habeeb (Westfield, N.J./Kent Place School) finished off the Lafayette scoring with goals at 75:21 and 86:23.
Wesmiller and freshman Marissa Mullins (Wall, N.J./Wall Township) split time in goal for Lafayette. Mullins managed two saves and didn't allow a goal in 45 minutes. Chamaigne Beidler and Dawn Mycewicz each played a half for St. Peter's (0-15), recording a combined 15 saves.
For the game, Lafayette outshot St. Peter's 31-5.
