The Bobcat women’s soccer team rolled over two conference rivals in recent games to improve to third place in the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) with a 4-1-1 record.
On Wednesday, Oct. 11, the Bobcats defeated York College by a score of 4-1.
The Bobcats out-shot the Spartans 16 to 7.
Sophomore forward Brooke Shehade led Frostburg with two goals. Her first goal came in under five minutes with a left footed chip inside the 18 that went over the York keeper’s head and found the back of the net. Senior Melanie Bell had the assist.
Around the five-minute mark, junior forward Danielle Ferris put the Bobcats up 2-0 as she put away a rebound from a blocked shot.
Sophomore Jesse Dunagan found the back of the net for her first career goal. Junior Hailey Turney slotted a ball past York’s backline and Dunagan got on the end and slipped a shot past the keeper. The Cats went into intermission up 3-0.
York’s only goal came early in the second half by Emily Munkittrick.
Frostburg goalkeeper, junior Emily Faust, finished the night with four saves.
Shehade closed out the scoring with her second goal of the night in the 83rd minute, giving the Bobcats a 4-1 lead.
On Saturday, Oct. 14, the Bobcat women’s soccer team shutout the Marymount Saints with a final score of 3-0.
Frostburg peppered the Marymount goal with shots from the moment the whistle blew.
15 minutes into the first half, Bell found Ferris for the first goal of the match. This was Ferris’ third goal of the season.
At the 30-minute mark, Turney put the Bobcats up 2-0. The ball bounced around the 18 with multiple shot attempts before Turney put it away. Freshman midfielder Helen Francis was credited with the assist.
Shortly after, sophomore forward Shehade scored her fifth goal of the season after receiving a pass from Turney to put a left-footed shot in the back of the net.
The Bobcats outshot the Saints 26-4. Sophomore Gwen Schemm led in shots with seven. Frostburg was unable to score a goal in the second half but their strong first half start was enough to steal the win.
Freshman goalkeeper Jenny Bullers and Faust split time in the net for Frostburg to get the shutout.
This game was the third time this season the Bobcats scored three or more goals in a game.
The Bobcats return to action Wednesday, Oct. 18, as they travel to Penn-State Harrisburg for another CAC match-up.
