BRADFORD, PA —
Frostburg State scored eight goals for the second straight game for an 8-0 shutout of host Pitt-Bradford on Saturday afternoon.
Led by freshman Danielle Carter’s (Rockville/Rockville, Md.) first career hat trick, the Bobcats (8-4, 3-0) jumped all over the Panthers to remain undefeated in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference.
Carter, who has 11 goals on the season, gave the Bobcats a quick 2-0 lead as she scored her first two goals of the afternoon in the first five and half minutes of the contest.
Less than three minutes later, junior Aimee Sprague (Yarmouth/Yarmouth, Mass.) scored her second goal of the year to extend FSU's lead to 3-0.
The Bobcats then poured it on, scoring four more goals before halftime.
Sophomore Erin Carraghan (Walkersville/Walkersville, Md.) scored once and added two assists, as she teamed with senior Karen Kotofski (Northeast/Glen Burnie, Md.) on Carter’s third goal of the half.
Sophomore Shera Rowan (Bishop Walsh/Frostburg, Md.) added two goals of her own in the final 18 minutes of the first half to bring the score to 7-0.
Sophomore Beth Hlebasko (Linganore/New Market, Md.) had a pair of first-half assists to give her a team-high nine on the season.
In the second half, Frostburg State sat back and protected its lead, out-shooting Pitt-Bradford 37-0.
The Bobcats got one more goal on the scoreboard as Kotofski, who did not play against Lake Erie due to injury, came off the bench and scored her 12th goal of the year on a header from junior Erika Neuser (Fallston/Forest Hill, Md.).
Kotofski now has 111 career points, seven shy of tying the FSU all-time record of 118 held by Amy Foote.
Senior Stephanie Zych (Guilderland/Slingerlands, N.Y.) and junior Jackie Tonsing (Westlake/Waldorf, Md.) each played 45 minutes to combine for the shutout.
The Bobcats will look to continue their winning streak in the AMCC as they will host Penn State Altoona on October 22nd at 4:00 pm and then Pitt-Greensburg on October 25th at 1:00 pm.
