St. Mary's City, Md. - Freshman forward Tori Eskay (Damascus, Md./Urbana) matched her season-high with two goals Tuesday afternoon as St. Mary's College of Maryland notched a 3-0 shutout of Marymount (Va.) University in Capital Athletic Conference women's soccer action.
The Seahawks (6-8-1, 4-2-1 CAC) broke the scoreless draw in the 25th minute as senior defender Karisa Carroll (Long Island, N.Y./Ward Melville) slotted a pass through two Marymount defenders which Eskay picked up the ball in the box and chipped in a shot into the top left corner.
Five first-half saves by freshman Gaby Prellezo (Coral Gables, Fla./Our Lady of Lourdes) kept St. Mary's in check and the Saints (0-13, 0-6 CAC) remained just one goal down at halftime.
Eskay found the back of the net once again at 60:29 as she corralled the ball in the open field and then dribbled past a couple Marymount defenders, beating Prellezo to the left.
Senior forward Erika Kenny (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) gave the home team a three-goal cushion at 88:41 as senior defender Tessa Searle (Olney, Md./Sherwood) sent in a corner kick which junior midfielder Taylor Colonna (Kingsville, Md./Perry Hall) flicked to the far right post where Kenny was waiting to tap it in.
St. Mary's rattled off 24 shots to the Saints' 10, while the Seahawks dominated corner kicks, 10 to 4.
Freshman goalkeeper Grace Koplow (Ellicott City, Md./Wilde Lake) recorded her first career shutout, making four saves.
Prellezo finished the afternoon with nine stops as Marymount remains winless on the 2009 campaign. The Saints' last win was an 8-0 shutout of Gallaudet University on October 30, 2008.
The Seahawks will look to carry this momentum into this Saturday's key Capital Athletic Conference match-up with Salisbury University at 3:00 pm. Prior to the start of Saturday's contest, St. Mary's will recognize its seven seniors.
