Three First Half Goals Lift Women’s Soccer Over Bay Path College, 4-0

LONGMEADOW, Mass.- Elms College senior forward Jennifer Killion (Cambridge, Mass.) struck for two goals and senior goalkeeper Kelly Callahan (Monson, Mass.) secured the shutout with four saves as the Blazers downed Bay Path College, 4-0 in Saturday afternoon's New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) women's soccer game at Ryan Field.

With the win, Elms improves to 7-5-4 overall, 4-1-2 in conference action, while Bay Path slides to 3-11 overall, 2-5 in NECC play.  

Killion started the scoring surge in the ninth minute of action slicing the ball past Bay Path goalkeeper Melina Isdith (Rego Park, N.Y.) after a misplayed clear by a Wildcats defender.

The Blazers struck again in the 27th minute of play when freshman midfielder Kelley Haggerty (Wynantskill, N.Y.) found the back of the net on a quick touch in the middle after a free kick by sophomore midfielder Ashley Venancio (Ludlow, Mass.) to extend the lead to 2-0.

Elms' senior forward Erica Griffo (Syracuse, N.Y.) delivered the Blazers' third goal of the frame at the 32:43 mark with a flick into the right corner to give the Blazers a 3-0 cushion at intermission.

Elms outshot Bay Path 12-2 in the opening 45 minutes of action and continued to apply offensive pressure as Killion connected for her second goal of the contest on a breakaway in the 63rd minute to increase the lead to 4-0.

The Blazers finished with 26 shots in the game and limited Bay Path to just eight – six of which occurred in the second half.

Isdith registered 11 saves in the losing effort for the Wildcats, while Nicole Crossman (Winsted, Conn.) fired two shots on target.

The Blazers return to conference action when they host Wheelock College on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7:00 p.m. at Leary Field.
