Four-Goal First Half Sparks Women's Soccer Past St. Mary’s
FROSTBURG, MD —
Freshman Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./North East)
scored twice as part of Frostburg State’s four-goal first half as the Bobcats rolled to a 5-1 win over St. Mary’s Saturday afternoon.
Kotofski began the outburst in the game’s eighth minute when she knocked in a corner kick that was first headed off a post by a Seahawk defender.
Just over five minutes later, freshman Laurie Reinholt (Middletown, Del./Glasgow) gave the Bobcats a 2-0 lead when she blasted in a direct kick from 35 yards out.
Kotofski added her second goal of the afternoon on a penalty kick with 20:39 left in the first half to put FSU up, 3-0.
Frostburg State (6-1) opened a 4-0 bulge when freshman Kim Dunbar (Hollywood, Md./Leonardtown) scored from inside the 18-yard line for her first collegiate goal.
Senior Amy Foote (Baltimore, Md./Patapsco) assisted on the tally for her team-high 12th point on the season.
St. Mary’s (2-3) got on the board less than 30 seconds later as Christa Childers scored from close range on assists from Jen Chumley and Brooke Barcheski.
The Bobcats nearly responded under a minute later, but Kotofski's crossing shot rolled just wide left of the net, and FSU took a 4-1 lead into halftime.
Freshman Alyse Reed (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill East) scored her first collegiate goal with 9:43 remaining in the game to cap the scoring.
Bobcat sophomore Stephanie Zych (Slingerlands, N.Y./Guilderland) tied her career high with 10 saves and improved to 6-1 on the year.
Seahawk keeper Laura Carrier stopped six shots in the loss.
