FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The University of Mary Washington Women's Soccer Team (2-1) took advantage of Erin Reynolds' second-half hat-trick as they defeated Emory & Henry College (0-4) by a 3-0 margin Saturday afternoon at Battleground Grass.
After a scoreless first half which saw Emory & Henry senior goalkeeper Sarah Jerome (Charlotte, N.C.) make five saves, UMW turned on its offense. Just 1:27 after the break, Reynolds got her first goal as she was assisted by Lizzie Weast and Jessica Bednarcik.
In the 55th minute, Reynolds struck again as she dribbled down the left side and placed the ball in the back of the net.
With just 2:38 left in the contest, Maryfay Jackson found Reynolds to complete her trio of goals on the games.
The Eagles outshot the Wasps, 21-3 and held a 10-2 advantage on corner kicks. Emory & Henry forced Mary Washington to be called offside on six different occasions. Jerome finished the match with nine saves.
Emory & Henry will remain on the road tomorrow afternoon when it faces Rowan University on the Mary Washington campus beginning at 12:30 p.m.
