HOMECOMING: Four Seniors Score in Win

The women’s soccer kicked it up a notch for the homecoming game against Barry, winning 6-0.

Alison Penland set the pace for the Spartans by scoring the first goal 1:30 into the game.

“This was a bounce back from the loss against St. Leo,” said Penland.

Penland’s goal was one of four goals scored in the first half. Nicole Murphy and Marissa Bernard each had a goal. Stefanie Huertas scored her first career goal on a penalty kick at the end of the half.

“We were fired up from a disappointing loss last game,” said head coach Gerry Lucey. “The team did well, we made a lot of changes and we finished our opportunities.”

In the second half the Spartans took control of the game and added two more goals to the scoreboard. Both goals were unassisted, shot by Shannon Agnew and Lindsay O’Bryan. The Spartans were given two yellow cards for rough play, with one each going to Shelby Kuni and Marissa Mohammed.

With a commanding lead and at about seven minutes left, the entire second string went in for the Spartans.

“This game brought our spirits up,” said Mohammed. “We showed we could play and that we could put the ball in the back of the net.”

This was the Spartans’ last regular season home game. They play at Eckerd College Wednesday night at 7 p.m. The Sunshine State Conference tournament begins next week.
