Salisbury defeats York, 3-1, to lead conference standings

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team took down Capital Athletic Conference foe York (Pa.) College, 3-1, as it scored two goals in the second half to overcome a 1-1 draw in the first half.

The Spartans (4-8, 4-1 CAC) would take the early lead when Lauren Ward scored in the game's fourth minute.

Salisbury, however, dominated play taking 13 shots and five corners in the first half. The Sea Gulls were able to tie the game with five minutes remaining in the half, as junior Sarah Pfundstein maneuvered around several Spartan defenders, sending a ball past the York goalkeeper into the left corner of the goal.

Salisbury (9-3-2, 5-0 CAC) would continue to put pressure on the ball in the second half and came away with two additional goals. Pfundstein found the back of the net, for her second goal of the day, as she collected a pass from senior Katie McMahon and sent the ball from a hard angle into the left corner of the goal.

Just 22 seconds later, freshman Morgan Brasch brought the score to 3-1, as she went one-on-one with a York defender and then slipped the ball to the right of the goalie for the final goal of the match.

With this win, Salisbury is on the top of the CAC standings.

The Sea Gulls next contest will be on Saturday, Oct. 15, as they head to Frostburg State University to take on the Bobcats in conference play. The match is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
