Knights Win on the Road at Marymount

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Southern Virginia women's soccer team picked up its second win on Wednesday evening, dominating Marymount University 5-1.

The Knights (2-0) started the game on fire with sophomores McCall Jensen and Alli Rigby each scoring within the first 10 minutes. Jensen lofted a beautiful shot over the keeper's head from about 25 yards out, while Rigby got on the board by pressuring the Saints' (0-3-3) goalie into a costly error and finished the play from within the six-yard box.

While there was no more scoring in the first half, sophomore Kylie Auger got the second half started by  scoring the first of her two goals in the 54th minute from about 18 yards out. Her second goal came just 12 minutes later to extend the Knights' lead to 4-0.

In the 71st  minute, senior Haylee Grimmer Goering fed a well-timed pass to forward Jamilla Anderson for a one-on-one with the keeper, which she placed well in the bottom left corner of the goal. The Saints finally tallied a goal in the 81st minute to wrap up the game at 5-1.

The number of shots were pretty even on the game as the Saints finished with 15 and the Knights had 13, but the difference came in putting those shots on frame with Marymount only testing the goalkeeper three times and the Knights putting nine shots on goal.

Sophomore Kylie Lulich started in goal and improved her season record to 2-0.

The Knights will travel down to North Carolina on Saturday to take on Greensboro College. Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m.
