Cougars Drop 5-0 Decision To Brandeis
Worcester, Mass. – Visiting Brandeis University scored three first-half goals en route to a commanding 5-0 victory over host Clark University in non-league women's soccer action on Saturday evening.
Dara Spital (Miami, Fla.), who scored the game-winner for the Judges in Friday night's season-opening win over MIT, continued the stellar start to her season with three assists, including a pair in the first half as Brandeis broke open the game with their three goal outburst over a 12 minute span.
The Judges got on the board in the 21st minute when Kelly Peterson (Houston, Texas) scored off of a feed from Alec Spivack (Miami, Fla.).
Less than five minutes later Brandeis was at it again, this time as Spital set up Mary Shimko (Bay Village, Ohio) for the first of her two markers on the day.
The third goal of the first half came when Spital fed Holly Szafran (Newton, Mass.) for her first collegiate score at 32:18.
It took less than a minute into the second half for Szafran to collect an assist as she connected with Sapir Edalati (Great Neck, N.Y.), making the score 4-0.
The scoring wrapped up three minutes later when Spital notched her third helper of the contest on Shimko's second tally of the contest.
Brandeis, now 2-0 on the season without having allowed a goal, will play host to Roger Williams on Wednesday, while Clark remains in Worcester to host Framingham State.
