The Shorewomen experienced lightning delays during their game against Wesley on Friday, Aug. 31, ultimately leading to the game’s postponement to an undetermined date.

Despite this, the team was ready to face Rosemont College on Sunday in Rosemont, Penn.

The Shorewomen showed no mercy on the Ravens as they beat them 12-0. This game was the first time in 16 years that the team had double digits in goals. It was also the seventh straight season opener win.

Senior Lindsay Russell said she is confident in the   team’s     ability   after the win over Rosemont.

“We are thrilled with our win today over Rosemont. Because this acted as our first game of the season, the team was really just excited to go out and compete, and we had an awesome day offensively. As we enter this season we are extremely optimistic about what this team can achieve.  The potential of this group is, in my opinion, is the highest in our programs history, so we’re looking forward to the successes that this season could bring. As a team, we’ve set a lot of goals moving forward, but in our sport, success is built one game at a time. We’re excited to see what we’re capable of,” she said.

The team had a diverse group of scorers including freshmen Bess Mascon, Erin O’Rielly, and Emily Jacoby, sophomore Sara Douglas, juniors Parker Morris and Cayla Marcinko, and seniors Lauren Neary, Arianna Sabatino, Lindsay Russell, and Olivia Sabatino.

   Washington College  was winning 5-0 by the end of the first half and finished the game by scoring seven more goals during the second half.

During the game, Olivia Sabatino scored two goals, which set a new school record, having 18 goals in her WC women’s soccer career.       

“I’m honored to receive this recognition because it exemplifies the growth of our team over the past four years. I am extremely lucky to play along side such a hardworking group of individuals— every goal has truly been a team effort.  Everything we accomplish, we accomplish together, and I can’t wait to see what else we achieve this season,” she said.

While Sabatino set school records, many new faces got to put their stats on the leaderboard. Jacoby and Morris got to showcase their offensive skills and scored their first collegiate goals this past Sunday.

The Shorewomen take on Rutgers-Camden on Saturday, Sept. 8 and begin conference play with Gettysburg on Saturday, Sept. 15.
