Mustangs cruise past Crusaders, 4-0

Senior night was a memorable one for the Stevenson women’s soccer team as they earned a dominant 4-0 victory over Alvernia on Friday at Mustangs Stadium. The Mustangs did not allow Alvernia to get a shot on goal and limited them to only four shots in total. Meanwhile, Stevenson had 20 shots in the game, all three corner kicks and continually attacked the Crusaders goalkeeper.

Stevenson led just 1-0 at halftime with a late goal despite out-shooting Alvernia 12-2, but took off in the final ten minutes of the game with three more goals.

Brittney Celano sent a corner kick into the box in the 40th minute. Alvernia failed to clear the ball, it settled at the feet of freshman Alex Hamel and after one touch to clear her defender she struck a left-footed ball into the middle of the goal.

Though the Mustangs had trouble getting too many shots past Alvernia goalkeeper Jessica Plunkett, Stevenson’s dominant control of possession prevented the Crusaders from taking any advantage of Plunkett’s performance. Then, in the 60th minute Plunkett had to leave the game because of an injury. In the final 30 minutes, the Mustangs picked on backup goalie Kelcey Hutchinson.

In the 81st minute another corner kick sent in by Celano led to a goal by the Mustangs as the serve was headed in by Alayna Roesener. Seven minutes later Julia Webb found herself in space 32 yards out, blasted a shot at the goal, over Hutchinson’s lead and it re-directed down into the goal off the crossbar. It was a beautiful strike for her first career goal.

The two quick goals seemed to rattle Hutchinson. In the 89th minute, Webb kicked the ball into the box with little expectations that it would go into the goal. Hutchinson misplayed it, however. The ball bounced over her head and through her hands. Mustang freshman Katie Maher ran to the ball to try to finish it. Two Alvernia defenders beat her to it, but they also misplayed the ball and kicked it into the net for an own goal.

Despite not needing to record a single save in the game, junior Tiffany McKee earned her 25th career victory and 13th career shutout.

Prior to the game seniors Jordan Porretto, Alexis Siejack and Jessica Demko were honored before the game. Stevenson now sits in third place in the MACC with 13 points. They will conclude their regular season with road games next week at Lebanon Valley on Wednesday and Lycoming on Saturday.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
