EMMITSBURG, Md. -The University of Pennsylvania women’s soccer opened its 2014 season with a 1-0 win over Mount St. Mary’s, as an early own goal by the Mount proved to be enough at Waldron Family Stadium.
The own goal came early in the ninth minute, and while the Quakers outshot the Mount 18-1 on the night -- 7-1 in the first half, 11-0 in the second -- it ended up being their only score of the night.
Erin Mikolai led Penn’s attack with six shots, two of them on goal. In her collegiate debut, freshman Anna Estep had three shots.
Junior Kalijah Terilli started the match in goal, while senior Katherine Myhre played the second half between the pipes. At the other end, Rachel Bourne and Vicky Cocozza played a half each for Mount St. Mary’s and combined for seven saves.
