Women's Soccer Extends Unbeaten Streak to Six

TAKOMA PARK, Md. – Four different Knights scored on Monday as the Southern Virginia University women's soccer team moved to 5-0-1 in their last six matches with a dominate 4-0 victory at Washington Adventist University.

Junior Melanee Guymon's second goal of the season gave Southern Virginia its first lead over Washington Adventist at the 35:38 mark. The Knights extended their lead in the 52nd minute when freshman Briar Sands recorded her first assist of the season on a setup for team leader in goals and points, freshman Bryndel Kindred.

Five minutes later Southern Virginia sophomore Kendra Heim put the match out of reach for the Lady Shock with her fourth goal on the year. The Knights tacked on one more goal in the 82nd minute when freshman Jackie Barlow scored her second goal this season on freshman Ashley Moreno's first collegiate assist.

Southern Virginia's defense, led by Tamara Nagle, Michelle Riddle, Laura Schow and Amanda Zweifel, continued its strong play as the Knights recorded their seventh shutout in thirteen matches this season.  The Knights' physical defense allowed them to control possession throughout the contest resulting in a 39-6 Southern Virginia shot advantage and 31-3 shot on goal advantage.

Women's soccer faces a quick turnaround as it hosts Mountain State University on Tuesday, Oct. 19 in the "Kick for the Cure" fundraiser match for breast cancer research. "Kick for the Cure" begins at 4 p.m. at The Fields and will be followed by volleyball's "Dig for the Cure" match at 7 p.m. in Knight Sports Arena.
