BUENA VISTA, Va. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team posted its third-consecutive shutout with a 2-0 win over Southern Virginia University Saturday afternoon. Classmates Kandace Racine and Samantha Beck each netted a goal late in the contest to lead the Sea Gull attack.
After over 75 minutes of scoreless play, Racine took a pass from freshman Lindsey Andonian to give Salisbury (7-4-1) the lead with 14:24 remaining in regulation. Andonian was at the right side of the box and sent a centering pass to the sophomore from Elkton, Md., who beat the Southern Virginia (3-7-1) goalie to give the Sea Gulls the lead. The goal was Racine's first of her career.
With the clock winding down, Beck took a pass from Andonian to pad the Salisbury lead with just 87 seconds remaining.
Salisbury outshot the Knights 14-4 in the contest, including 8-1 in the first 45 minutes of play. The Sea Gulls pressured Southern Virginia's goalie MaKenzie Cox, putting 11 of their 14 shots on goal. In turn, the Knights only put two shots on goal in the contest.
Junior goalie Michelle Conrad started the game for the Sea Gulls in net and saw one shot sent her way, which was not on goal. At the half, Head Coach Kwame Lloyd inserted freshman Alesha Seifert in goal, who picked up the win in net. So far this season the freshman is 4-0 in goal for the Sea Gulls.
With two assists in today's contest, Andonian added to her team-high total, now giving her five assists on the season.
The Sea Gulls will stay in Virginia tonight and head to Lexington, Va., to take on Washington and Lee University tomorrow, Oct. 13. That game is slated to begin at 2 p.m. Today's contest was the first game of a four-game road trip before returning to the SU Soccer Complex on Oct. 23.
