FROSTBURG, MD —
Meg McIntosh scored the lone goal of the game in the 50th minute to lift 17th-ranked Johns Hopkins past host Frostburg State 1-0 in the second annual Bobcat Women’s Soccer Invitational Sunday afternoon.
Johns Hopkins (5-0) held a commanding 11-3 advantage in shots in the first half but came up empty on several solid scoring chances. Kaitlin Giannetti had the best opportunity to score in the 32nd minute when her shot hit the crossbar and bounced straight down into the goal mouth before FSU sophomore goalie Molly Whyte (Basking Ridge, N.J./Ridge) jumped to make the save.
The Blue Jays finally broke through five minutes into the second half when McIntosh found the net off a corner kick.
JHU outshot the Bobcats 21-3 for the game.
Frostburg State (1-2-1) played without junior forward and two-time first-team All-AMCC pick Danielle Carter (Rockville, Md./Rockville) due to an injury.
Whyte finished with eight saves, while Kerry Hamilton made two stops as JHU recorded its fourth straight shutout victory.
In Sunday’s first game, Washington & Lee tied Wooster 1-1. The Generals (0-1-1) took an early lead when Gina Von Sternberg netted the ball off a feed from Shana Oltmans in the fifth minute. The Fighting Scots (1-1-2) tied the game eleven minutes later on a goal by Erin Lustic.
The teams then battled through a scoreless second half as well as two scoreless 10-minute overtime periods.
FSU returns to action Wednesday as it hosts Catholic at 4:30 pm.
