FROSTBURG, MD —
Junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin)
scored three times to set a Frostburg State career record with 45 goals as the Bobcats blanked visiting Hood College, 9-0, Thursday afternoon.
The Bobcats (6-7) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after just 2:44 of action.
Faust, who also added two assists on the afternoon, opened the scoring when she sent in a pass from senior Katie Harrington (Prince Frederick, Md./Calvert) just 1:08 into the game.
Harrington scored the first of her three goals just 29 seconds later and found the net again just over a minute more. Senior Cindy Reese (Westminster, Md./Westminster) assisted on both tallies.
Sophomore Ashley McKenney (Chesapeake, Md./Bohemia Manor) notched her first career goal off an assist from freshman Joanna Morelli (Rising Sun, Md./Rising Sun) at the 14:58 mark before scoring again with 3:09 left in the first half to give the Bobcats a 5-0 lead at the break.
Faust tied Kim Creighton's mark of 44 goals when she sent a pass from Reese into the left side of the net just 3:19 into the second half, and then assisted on consecutive tallies by Harrington and freshman Dani Ford (Ocean City, Md./Stephen Decatur) that gave the Bobcats an 8-0 bulge.
It was Ford's first goal of her career.
Faust then notched her record-setting goal by dribbling through traffic and sending a shot in with 11:45 remaining in the game.
Sophomore Jessica Moore (Bowie, Md./Culpeper, Va.) picked up the win after making three saves in the first half before giving way to freshmen Stella Kalambihis (Baltimore, Md./Joppatowne) and Chelsea Smith (Frederick, Md./Linganore).
Junior Katie Brzuchalski made 10 saves for Hood, which fell to 5-10 on the year.
