First half dominance leads to JCU victory

September 22nd, 2016

 

 

The John Carroll University women’s soccer team remains perfect at home this season with a dominating win over Kenyon College, 4-1.

 

The Blue and Gold move to 3-3-1 on the season and a 3-0 record on their home turf.

 

Scoring came early and often for the Blue Streaks as senior Dre Regrut buried a free kick in the second minute of the game. Two minutes later, sophomore Maddy Fisher had her original shot bounce off the post, falling to the thankful feet of freshman Jaclyn Audino was there for the rebound to get her (three goals) goal of the season.

 

Both Regrut (four goals) and Audino lead the team in scoring this season.

 

The next 30 minutes featured back and forth action between both the Ladies and the Blue Streaks. In the 34th minute, sophomore Bailey Fischer etched her name onto the score sheet with a tally for her first mark of the season.

 

Fischer led JCU with seven goals during the 2015 season.

 

The Blue Streaks went into the half leading, 3-0. JCU’s defense was unwavering in the first half after not allowing the Kenyon offense to register a shot on goal in the first 45 minutes.

 

The second half was more of the same from the hosting Blue Streaks. Fisher and Audino connected again for the Blue Streaks’ fourth goal of the contest and add some insurance to the victory. Audino was credited the assist on the Fisher tally.

 

Senior Maggie Smith got the Ladies on the scoreboard in the 84th minute, recording her seventh goal of the season. Smith represented the lone mark on the Kenyon score sheet.

 

John Carroll attempted 17 shots with nine arriving on target in the contest. Kenyon only attempted seven shots, four of which were on target.The Blue and Gold move to 3-3-1 overall with a perfect 3-0 record at home. Fisher credits the atmosphere of being inside Don Shula Stadium for the squad’s success, saying, “We started off our home opener with a win so we just wanted to continue to defend our home turf, also being home brings excitement to everyone, the extra support brings it all together.”
