NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Elms College women's soccer team cruised to a 7-0 victory over host Mitchell College in a New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) match at Alumni Field Saturday afternoon.
Brie Voight (Springfield, Mass./Springfield Central) finished with two goals and an assist while Angelina Estrada (Springfield, Mass./Springfield Central) added a pair of scores to propel the Blazers (10-2-1 overall) to a 4-0-0 mark in league play. Haley Richard (Monson, Mass./Monson) also tacked on a goal and an assist while Alizaya Clark (Springfield, Mass./SABIS International Charter) and Antriese Suarez (Amherst, Mass./Amherst)each contributed tallies.

The Blazers led 3-0 at the break but doubled the margin in the opening five minutes of the second half. Voight factored into all three goals, scoring the first in the 46th minute on a cross by Soucia and the third in the 50th.

Elms goalkeeper Rebecca Molin (West Hartford, Conn./Northwest Catholic) made only one save to record her ninth shutout of the season. Mitchell keeper Jordan Lohneiss (West Hartford, Conn./Conard) turned away 17 shots.
