PROVIDENCE, RI – The Johnson & Wales University women's soccer team has been on the cusp of an offensive explosion and it finally came Friday night. The Wildcats scored seven times in the second half to defeat Colby-Sawyer, 10-0, in the quarterfinals of the GNAC tournament.
Johnson & Wales: 14-6-1
CSC: Oona Bond (L, 7-7) 16 saves
JWU: Colleen Lynch: (W, 14-6-1) 3 saves
The Wildcats move on to face the winner of the Simmons vs. Saint Joseph's of Maine contest. JWU would host the Sharks, but travel to the Monks.
The 10 goals is a GNAC tournament record for the Wildcats, breaking the mark of eight done twice.
The JWU defense and goalkeeper Colleen Lynch continued to be impermeable. Colby-Sawyer only got four shots on goal – compared to 26 by the Wildcats – and Lynch pitched her third shutout in a row.
