In the twelfth minute of play, Anna Kauffman (Palmyra, Pa./Palmyra Area) found Aubrie Christensen (Suwanee, Ga./Manheim Township) who was able to take a shot from the upper left hand corner of the box, finding the back of the net. Christensen currently leads the team with four goals and four assists. 

The Eagles held a 16-2 edge in shots and tied with the Bobcats 3-3 in corner kicks.  Shannon Kriz (Breinigsville, Pa. / Parkland) took the first half while Kerry Leonard (Cockeysville, Md./ Maryvale Prep) finished the game in goal to complete the shutout. 

After the match, head coach Scott McKenzie discussed the win. "In a game that struggled to find a consistent rhythm, we are very happy to get a road victory. We played well defensively and were dangerous when we went forward."

The Eagles return to conference action Saturday, October 7 at Drew at 1:00pm.
