Women’s Soccer Downs Bryn Mawr to Stay Perfect
By Colin Lawless, Staff Writer
The Gettysburg Women’s Soccer Team stayed perfect this weekend as they beat Bryn Mawr 5-0 in a conference match on Saturday afternoon.
Erika Muskus, Brooke Priddy, Isabel Klatt, and Charlotte Cenatiempo provided the goals, and the backline stayed strong to post their fourth consecutive shutout, and sixth overall.
The goals began early as senior Brooke Priddy stepped up to convert a penalty kick. She hit it well into the top-left corner to score her first career goal.
Ten minutes later, first-year Naomi Joseph’s cross found sophomore Erika Muskus’ feet off of a deflection, and she buried it from close range to add to the Bullets’ lead.
“I saw Erika in space and looked to hit her immediately. I got a little fortunate but am glad it led to the goal,” said Joseph.
Charlotte Cenatiempo added her first just two minutes later, and her second nine minutes after that. The Bullets were up 4-0 after just 24 minutes and took this lead into halftime.
The second half was uneventful apart from senior Isabel Klatt’s goal in the 70th minute. She took advantage of a goalie miscue and added the fifth and final goal of the contest. Bryn Mawr was only able to register one shot and one corner throughout the half.
“We felt comfortable all throughout the game as we continued to keep possession, and we felt good to get a win with so many key players battling injuries. Now, our focus shifts towards Haverford,” said first-year Sully Williams.
The Bullets have never lost to Bryn Mawr, and have extended their all time win-streak against the Owls to 27-0. Their 9-0 start is the Bullets’ best since 1993, where they went on to win the Centennial Conference in its inaugural season. They’ll look to stay perfect on Saturday as they host the Haverford College Fords at 1pm on Clark Field.
At 8-1-1 overall and 2-0-1 in conference, the Fords will be a much tougher opponent than Bryn Mawr. Haverford currently sits fifth in the Centennial Conference standings.
