SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team opened this weekend's Salisbury University Classic with a 3-0 win on Friday evening over Ursinus College at the SU Soccer Complex.
The Sea Gull offense was on the attack early with four shots in the first 21 minutes.
After a shot by sophomore midfielder Julie Dannenberg that went high, the following Bears' goal kick was gathered by the Gulls. Sophomore forward Victoria Luc took the ball from outside the 18-yard box, dribbled into the box to the right side and grounded a shot into the lower left corner to put Salisbury ahead, 1-0, at the 22:12 mark.
Just over 10 minutes later, in the 32nd minute, freshman forward Marissa Walker took the ball down the right sideline and crossed it into the middle, where fellow freshman forward Lindsey Andonian was waiting to one-touch a shot past the keeper.
The Sea Gulls took the 2-0 lead into the half, while leading in shots, 9-4, as well.
Salisbury's defense held strong in the second half to keep the shutout going, only allowing four shots on goal for the entire game.
Freshman forward Megen Jackson added the third goal in the 89th minute. She had a wide open field in front of her on a fast break from midfield and ripped a shot into the upper left corner from just outside the 18-yard box.
Junior goalkeeper Michelle Conrad started the game and played the first half to earn the win, while making two saves, and freshman goalkeeper Alesha Seifert came into the game to play the second half, making two saves, as well.
The Sea Gulls will be back in action on Sunday for the final game of the Salisbury University Classic, as they host Bridgewater (Va.) College at the SU Soccer Complex; the match is set for 3 p.m. Bridgewater and Ursinus will play on Saturday, at 4 p.m., at the SU Soccer Complex.
