Second Half Outburst Leads Women’s Soccer to 10-0 Win Over Chargers

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.

Colby-Sawyer: 7-8
Johnson & Wales: 14-6-1

CSC: Oona Bond (L, 7-7) 16 saves
JWU: Colleen Lynch: (W, 14-6-1) 3 saves

Statistical Leaders:

Olivia Cairrao (JWU): 2 goals, 1 assist
Emily Zeblisky (JWU): 2 goals

Of Note:
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.

Christina Schneider and Emily Zeblisky each scored in the span of five minutes and Jordan Restivo added a goal just before the half as the Wildcats went the locker up 3-0.

Six minutes into the second half, Natalie Gallucci found the back of the net to start a scoring barrage that included Zeblisky's second goal and two tallies by Olivia Cairrao.

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.
