PIKEVILLE, Ky. - Kate Heilich (Columbia, S.C/Dreher) started scoring off early in Marshall's second win of the season by scoring just one minute into the match against Pikeville College. Thirteen other players joined in the scoring during the match to bring the final score to 14-0.
Heather Burchett (Dayton, Ohio/Centerville) provided the second goal of the match with her first goal of the season in the 10th minute of play when the Bears miss-cleared a corner kick taken by Kelly Jackson (Rochester, N.Y./Churchville-Chili).
In the 32nd minute the Herd (2-15-0/0-8-0) opened up on Pikeville by scoring four goals in seven minutes. The first goal came from Elise Provenzano (Webster, N.Y./Webster-Schroeder), assisted by Jackson and Mollie Lee (Leawood, Ks./St. Thomas Aquinas). Providing the next two goals were Cara Hemmerich (Dublin, Ohio/Dublin Coffman) and Lee, both scored off of corner kicks taken by Jackson. Jackson finished the four goal barrage with a penalty kick. Each of the four goals were the respective players' first of the season.
Just 32 seconds into the second half defensive player Jaime Gruber
(Hudson, Ohio/Hudson) scored the seventh goal of the match off of a pass from Jessica Jennings
(Dayton, Ohio/Carroll). Three minutes later the combination of Gruber and Jennings would connect again to assist Erin Johnson
(Mansfield, Ohio/Lexington) for the eighth goal. Jennings earned her own goal, after assisting the previous two, for the ninth goal. The assist came from Jen Short
Pikeville goalkeeper Krista Kouns denied the Herd any more goals for the next 15 minutes of play until Stephanie Kot (Lindenhurst, N.Y./St. John the Baptist) found the back of the net unassisted.
Aimee Wiese (Maitland, Fl./Edgewater) scored the 11th goal on a short breakaway off of a pass from Michelle Young (Hurricane, W.Va./WV Wesleyan). Young would then score her own goal just one minute later with assists coming from Short and Dana Yeske (Madison, Ala./Bob Jones).
The final two goals would come at minutes 82 and 85 from Katy Lee (Larkspur, Colo./New Mexico) and Short. Assisting in the goals were Gruber and Megan Jenkins (Dayton, Ohio/Fairborn).
Goalkeeper Kai Nordness (Burnsville, Minn./Burnsville) did not see any action during the winning contest.
"We played better soccer in the second half tonight and I hope to continue the momentum from this win into our game on Saturday," Head Coach Chris Kane said.
The Herd will close out the 2005 season by facing East Carolina on Saturday, October 29, at 1 p.m. at Sam Hood Field. The five seniors, Gruber, Hemmerich, Jenkins, Short and Nordness, will be honored prior to kick-off.
