Smith Scores Goal for WAC

CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Visiting Franklin & Marshall topped host Washington College, 3-1, in a Centennial Conference women's soccer game this afternoon on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium. 

F&M (4-2, 1-1 Centennial) held a 6-4 advantage in shots in a scoreless first half, though the Shorewomen recorded both of the period's corner kicks. 

F&M's Selena Boro broke the deadlock 50:58 when she headed in a ball sent by Carley Nicholson. The Shorewomen (3-3-1, 0-2) evened the score at 58:00 when freshman forward/midfielder Heather Smith (Glen Burnie, MD/Glen Burnie) bent in a long, tough-angle shot from wide right of the goal off an assist from sophomore forward Ainsley Boynton (Radnor, PA/Westtown School). The Diplomats regained the lead when Nancy Epstein scored in transition at 62:08. Shelby Cummins tacked on the insurance goal on another transition play, finishing a pass ahead from Nicholson at 78:36. 

The Diplomats held a 17-10 advantage in shots in the game, while the Shorewomen maintained a 3-1 edge in corner kicks.  F&M goalkeeper Hannah Barry made three saves, while Washington junior goalkeeper Tori Ripple (Baltimore, MD/John Carroll) made seven.

The Shorewomen are back in action Tuesday with a 7:00 p.m. Centennial Conference home game against Swarthmore.
