One-Two Punch Leads Devil Women Past Eagles 3-0
(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson College women's soccer team struck twice in a span of just 26 seconds en route to a 3-0 win over Juniata on Wednesday night. Junior midfielder Genevieve Olson (Quincy, Mass./Thayer Academy) assisted the Devils' first goal and tacked on a pair of goals to lead the way for Dickinson.
Olson made a great pass to sophomore Marissa Kunkle (Perkasie, Pa./Pennridge) who would set-up sister Ashley Kunkle (Perkasie, Pa./Pennridge) to put the Devils on the board in the 71st minute. The Devils would quickly find themselves with a 2-0 lead as Olson found the net off an assist from sophomore Hannah Richardson (Chevy Chase, Md./Bethesda-Chevy Chase) just 26 seconds later for the second goal of the day.
The one-two punch was just shy of the school record for fastest consecutive goals. Jess Griggs and Alyssa Carlow scored twice against DeSales University in a span of 19 seconds in 2003.
Olson added another insurance goal, finishing an assist from first-year Samantha Friday (Southborough, Mass./Algonquin Regional) in the 80th minute to close out the scoring for the game.
The entire second half was played in a downpour as the Devils tried to maintain possession with short, quick passes. The Devils held a 13-0 advantage in shots in the second half, finishing the game with a 22-3 edge in that category. The Devils also forced five corners while not allowing any on the defensive end.
Sophomore goalkeeper Annie Weichert (Chatham, N.J./Chatham) made three saves and controlled everything that came her way. She would share the shutout with first-year Edie Riggs (Frederick, Md./Linganore), who came on for the final seven minutes.
Kristen Penska made six saves in goal for Juniata as they slip to 7-4 on the season.
The Red Devils improve to 7-2-1 overall. They are off this weekend before traveling to Susquehanna University for a 7:00 pm match on Monday night.
