WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel tripled its season's offensive total in the first 4:09 of a 5-1 victory over Bryn Mawr in Centennial Conference (CC) women's soccer action on Saturday.

Kelly Crawford (Galloway, N.J./Absegami) scored two goals to lead the Green Terror (1-4, 1-2 CC) to its first victory of the season. Hilary Hanus (Hockessin, Del./Cab Calloway School of the Arts) added three assists.

Lizzie Robinson broke up the shutout for the Owls (5-1-1, 0-1-1 CC), scoring unassisted with three seconds to play.

Erica Diffendal (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) found Crawford just 3:49 into the game to snap a two-game scoreless drought for McDaniel.
