Gettysburg blanks McDaniel

GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Lauren Walsh tallied a goal and an assist to lead Gettysburg to a 3-0 win over McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) women’s soccer action on Wednesday.

            The Green Terror (4-10, 1-6 CC) was held off the board for the fifth straight game, extending its scoreless stretch to 469 minutes, 7 seconds.
            Danielle St. Pierre recorded two saves for the Bullets (5-5-4, 4-3 CC) while Leanne Hollinger (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) recorded five saves for McDaniel and Kristin Cochran (Jessup, Md./Hammond) made one.
            After a back-and-forth first 25 minutes, Jordann Smak got a breakaway in the 26th minute and fired a shot from the top of the box to open the scoring.
            Just 48 seconds later, Walsh found Tara Gaston on the right side of the box and, with Hollinger out to play the ball, Gaston fired past her and into the left side of the net to double the advantage.
            Walsh rounded out the scoring in the 77th minutes with a shot from the right side that went off Hollinger’s hands.
            McDaniel had an opportunity early to take the lead but Jessica Peyton (Middletown, Md./Middletown) had a breakaway attempt that sailed high in the ninth minute. Tia Scott (Hagerstown, Md./North Hagerstown) had her shot hit the crossbar and bounce straight down in the 30th minute that would have closed the deficit to 2-1.
