Boller’s two second-half goals lead Sea Gulls to victory over Knights

BUENA VISTA, Va. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team traveled to Southern Virginia University on Saturday night and secured the 3-1 win in its final road match of the regular season.

The Sea Gulls (6-8-1, 3-3-0 CAC) jumped out to an early lead on a goal from the right side of the box by Megan Brady. Teammate Lydia Narum recorded an assist on the goal.

The Knights' (4-11-0, 0-6-0 CAC) best opportunity to tie the game in the first half came on a short breakaway to the left by Cydne Baker with just over two minutes to play but Ryan Wright hustled back in time to block Baker's shot away from the net.

There were three goals scored in a span of just over seven minutes in the second half. The first doubled the lead for the Sea Gulls when Julianna Boller received a through ball from teammate Carly Glassford before cutting up the middle of the field and delivering her shot inside the left post.

The Knights answered three minutes later on a goal by Shayli Nakamoto to cut the Salisbury lead back to one, but it was short-lived as Boller scored her second goal only two minutes later. This time it was Brooke Rossiter recording the assist with a cross from the right side to Boller, who was positioned two feet from the goal line and sent the redirect into the back of the net for the 3-1 lead.

Salisbury led Southern Virginia in shots, 10-7, corner kicks, 3-2, and fouls, 12-10.

The team returns home to close out the regular season on Wednesday, October 24 when it hosts Capital Athletic Conference opponent York College of Pennsylvania. That match is set to kick off at 3 p.m.
