— Sophomore Danielle Carter (Rockville, Md./Rockville)
recorded her second hat trick of the season to lead the Frostburg State women’s soccer team to a 5-1 win over Medaille Saturday afternoon.
The Bobcats improve to 6-1-2 overall and 3-0 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference, while the Mavericks, in their first season in the AMCC, fall to 4-7 and 1-2 in the league.
Carter scored the game’s first goal just 34 seconds into the second half off a feed from senior Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./Northeast). Just over two minutes later, Carter scored again with an assist from senior Rebecca Rambo (Freeland, Md./Hereford).
In the 69th minute, Tiffany Azzarito scored on a free kick from just outside the 18-yard box to pull Medaille to within 2-1.
Ten minutes later, junior Shera Rowan (Frostburg, Md./Bishop Walsh) dowsed the hopes of a Maverick comeback by scoing her third goal of the season with help from Kotofski’s second assist of the contest.
Carter added her third goal of the game in the 86th minute, and senior Alyse Reed (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill) completed the scoring with her first goal of the season off an assist from junior Beth Hlebasko (New Market, Md./Linganore) in the 89th minute.
The Bobcats outshot the Mavericks 26-3 and held a 14-1 edge in corner kicks.
FSU returns to action Wednesday when it hosts Pitt-Greensburg at 4:00 p.m.
