FREDERICK, Md. – The Marymount University women's soccer team hit the road Saturday afternoon to face off against Hood College. Home-field advantage lifted the Blazers over the Saints in a 5-0 bout.
Junior Karen Reyes found herself a very promising opportunity in the 18th minute that could have cut the deficit to only two, but quick thinking from the Blazer defense blocked her shot. The early aggression from the Blazers showed on the score sheet as they outshot the Saints four to nine.
After the halftime break, freshman Madison Foltz got her first career minutes for the Saints in the net. The Blazer offense put the freshman goalkeeper to the test, shooting eight times and scoring on two of the opportunities.
Junior Mary Catherine Treuting also had a key opportunity for the Saints in the 77th minute, finding the head of freshman Kendall Marra. Marra's header came just shy of the net as the ball rattled off the crossbar.
Senior Sydney Sherman notched two more saves on her senior slate in 45 minutes of play. Foltz played her first 45 minutes of her career in the second half, notching her first collegiate save.
The Saints are back home on Wednesday, September 19 as they host Greensboro College. Start time is set for 7 p.m., at Long Bridge Park.
