POULTNEY, Vt. – The Plymouth State University women’s soccer team improved to 2-0 on the season Thursday afternoon with a 6-0 victory over Green Mountain College.
The Panthers led only 1-0 at halftime, but scored in the opening minute of the second half and slowly pulled away.
Sophomore Stacy DiSabato (Manchester, N.H./Central) put the Panthers on the board 15 minutes into the game with a strike just outside the box. Green Mountain battled hard despite being outshot by a large margin and hung tough, keeping it a one-goal game through the first half.
Senior Jaimee Coombs (Peabody, Mass.) started the second half for PSU with an assist from sophomore Lauren Lavery (Nashua, N.H.) in the 45th minute. Freshman Sarah Daglis (Berlin, Conn.) got into the mix with an unassisted goal in the 60th. Less than five minutes later Lavery returned to the score sheet for a finish of her own, unassisted, to make it 4-0.
Freshman Alex Marcell (Pittsford, Vt.) scored another unassisted goal in the 85th minute, and sophomore Gianna Minervini (Point Pleasant, N.J.) finished off the tally with a goal from junior back Nicole Bedard (Windham, N.H.)
Senior goalkeeper Ashley Riberdy (Manchester, N.H.) made seven saves in the contest while GMC’s goalkeeper, senior Claire Davis (Newark, Del.) finished the day with 24 saves.
Green Mountain (1-5) takes to the pitch next against Bard College in Annandale-on-the-Hudson on Sept. 19th at 7 p.m. Plymouth State (2-0) is back in action Saturday in the Little East Conference opener at Eastern Connecticut (1:00 p.m.)
