ARLINGTON, Va – The Marymount University women's soccer team hosted William Peace University Saturday afternoon, and with the help of three different seniors, Marymount came away with the 3-0 win.
After three consecutive Pacers' saves in the first half, Marymount found the back of the net on the fourth shot-on-goal. Sophomore Taylor Memon found a wide open senior Gabby Cabrales at the top of the box. Cabrales capitalized on her effort putting the Saints up by one.
The Marymount defense stifled the Pacers in the first half, holding them to only one shot.
To open the second half, Memon had an opportunity to increase the lead to two, but the Pacers' goalkeeper was there for the challenge.
A slow second half saw little action, and with seven minutes left in the game senior Courtney Stephens capitalized off of a corner kick to increase the Saints lead by two.
Fellow senior Karen Reyes wanted a share on goal, and just three minutes later, Reyes beat the goalie on a one-on-one opportunity to seal the deal for Marymount.
Sophomore goalkeeper Maia Pappadakis was faced with two shots on goal in the game, making both saves, and recording her first clean sheet of the season.
The women's soccer team opens conference play this Wednesday, October 9 as it hosts Immaculata University; first touch is set for 7 p.m.
