PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania women’s soccer team put together a complete effort on Sunday afternoon at Rhodes Field, dominating Mount St. Mary’s in all facets to take a 3-0 victory.
With the win, Penn is 3-0-0 for the second time in three seasons. The Mount fell to 0-6-0.
The Quakers got on the board just ahead of the quarter-hour, when a Darby Mason corner kick from the left side was headed home from about 10 yards out by Paige Lombard. It was the senior transfer’s first goal in a Penn uniform.
Penn put this one to bed with a pair of goals just 1:05 apart ahead of the half-hour mark. Sophomore Farah Otero-Amad was involved in both goals; her cross from the left was finished by Erin Mikolai in the 27th minutes, and then she finished a through-ball from Cameo Hazlewood in the 28th.
Penn outshot The Mount by a staggering 35-4 on the day, but could not find the goal in the second half as MSM goalkeeper Vicky Cocozza stood tall with eight saves. Kalijah Terilli started in goal, and was relieved at the half by Carrie Crook who preserved the clean sheet.
Penn is on the road for the first time this season next weekend, traveling to South Carolina to face 13th-ranked Clemson on Friday at 7 p.m. and USC-Upstate on Sunday at noon.
