Privateer Offense Shines as Maritime Blanks Saint Elizabeth, 7-0
THROGGS NECK, N.Y. (September 25, 2013) – The Maritime women's soccer team got back in the win column with a statement win over the Screaming Eagles of the College of Saint Elizabeth on Wednesday evening by the score of 7-0.
The goal differential was tied for the fourth highest goal-margin in team history and highest since September 1, 2011 when the Privateers defeated Yeshiva by a 10-0 score. Five different goal scorers found the back of the net, which was also the highest total of different goal scorers since the 10-0 win over Yeshiva to start of the 2011 season.
Leading the way in terms of goal scorers was senior Jorrie Trenkamp (Tabernacle, N.J./Seneca), who netted three more goals and now has 66 career goals as she continues to distance herself in the women's soccer record book. Her 13 goals this season also places her fourth on the single-season goals list behind her freshman, sophomore and junior seasons.
Also earning her way into a tie for the top spot in single-game assist record was junior Kadie Hook (Monkton, Md./John Carroll), who finished the evening with three helpers to tie Christina George's record set in mid-September 2009. Hook also added her first goal of the season to finish the game with five points.
Senior AudryAnna Ward (Youngsville, N.Y./Lake Huntington) was also involved in the scoring action with a goal and assist for her first three points of the season, while junior Melanie Lopez (Yonkers, N.Y./Saunders Trades & Technical) and classmate Addyson Vignola (Kings Park, N.Y./Kings Park) also scored their first goals of the season. For Vignola, it was also her first career tally while playing primarily in a defensive position.
The game itself started off with Trenkamp registering the game's first shot of the evening with just 63 second gone by but it was blocked in front by the defense. In the seventh minute of play, Trenkamp received a pass from Ward in the center of the box and sent it past Saint Elizabeth goalkeeper Carla Martinez for the game's first goal.
Twenty-seven seconds later the Privateers found the back of the net again as it was Ward to pick up her first of the season after receiving a pass from Hook to make the score 2-0. The Privateers scored once again less than eight minutes later to add to their lead as Trenkamp picked up her second of the match off of a miscue by the Screaming Eagle defense after a corner kick was taken by Hook.
Lopez got in on the scoring action in the 32nd minute after freshman Anastacia Evans (Smithtown, N.Y./Hauppauge) slotted a ball from the right wing to Lopez, who sent the ball off the goalkeeper's hands and into the back of the net to increase Maritime's lead to four. The score stood there at halftime as Maritime had outshot their guests by a 26-4 margin, controlling the majority of the contest.
After the halftime break, the Privateers continued to run on all cylinders as freshman Marisa Athan (Mineola, N.Y./Mineola) nearly missed scoring after hitting the lower right post as the score remained at four. Trenkamp netted her third of the night in the 69th minute of play after taking a pass from classmate Amy Hansen (Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich ) to put their squad up by five.
Less than five minutes later, another goal was added to the scoreboard as Hook shot the ball after taking a through-ball from sophomore Leanne Lavelle (New Windsor, N.Y./Washingtonville) to make the game 6-0. Maritime tacked on the extra point with the seventh and final goal of the evening as Vignola joined the scoring party as she struck the ball from about 20-yards out and put a strong curve on the ball past the goalkeeper to cap off the scoring at seven goals.
The Privateers ended the game with a season-best 38 shots, their highest shot output since September 5, 2009 against Keystone in a 5-0 win over the Giants. The Screaming Eagles ended the game with five shots, including a pair on goal that were stopped by sophomore Kristen Hoar (Buffalo, N.Y./Kenmore East) as the netminder earned her sixth win of the season.
Maritime (6-3, 0-1 Skyline) will return to Skyline Conference play this Saturday, when the team travels to Brooklyn, N.Y. to take on NYU-Poly at 6 p.m. from the Aviator Complex. Saint Elizabeth (0-7. 0-3 NEAC) travels to conference foe Lancaster Bible on Saturday afternoon for a 1 p.m. start.
