WASHINGTON - In a complete downpour the Gallaudet University women's soccer team sloshed its way to a 9-0 win over Hollins College here Sunday afternoon at a rain-drenched Hotchkiss Field.
Gallaudet (2-2) posted its second straight shutout this weekend as the Bison won, 2-0, the day before in the home and conference opener over College of Saint Elizabeth.
Five different Bison found the back of the net against Hollins (1-3) on Sunday.
Senior midfielder Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) and freshman midfielder Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) recorded hat tricks in the win. Shysh scored back-to-back goals early in the first half as GU jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead. Shysh assisted two other goals and scored the final goal of the game for the Bison in the 64th minute.
Freshman defender Sara Kulisan (St. Augustine, Fla.) scored the game's first goal in the opening minute off an assist from Shysh.
Gallaudet took a 5-0 lead into halftime after senior forward Brittany Mallach (Milton, Ontario) and freshman midfielder Kayla Marie Chiofilo (Stoneham, Mass.) netted the fourth and fifth goals, respectively, for the Bison.
Neild scored three straight goals in the second half in the 49th, 52nd and 61st minute.
Junior goalie Silvya Levesque (Ballston Spa, N.Y.) made five saves in her second consecutive shutout of the weekend.
- GU has scored 11 consecutive goals in the past the two games
- Kulisan's and Chiofilo's goals were their first collegiate goals
