Lady Bobcats Down Ferrum, 3-0

FERRUM, Va. -- Senior captain Christine Calvert had a goal and an assist to lead the Lady Bobcats over the Ferrum College Lady Panthers 3-0 Tuesday night at Panther Field.

Freshman Jessica O'Leary (Millbury, Mass.) scored her first collegiate goal in the 28th minute to give the Lady Bobcats a 1-0 lead.

The two teams carried the score into the locker rooms, but three minutes into the second half Calvert (Dallas, Texas) found the back of the net on a Vickie Rich (Arlington Heights, Ill.) assist to make it 2-0.

In the 66th minute, freshman Brooke Santerre (Port Republic, Md.) scored her first collegiate goal on a Calvert assist pushing the final margin to 3-0.

Sophomores Brittany Bolton (Roanoke, Va.) and Marissa Middleton (Olathe, Kan.) combined for the shutout in net for the Lady Bobcats.

"It was great to see Jessica and Brooke get their first collegiate goals," said head coach Renee Lopez. " They have been finishing in practice, so I am glad to see them finishing in a game."

"We played very well defensively," Lopez said. "I am pleased with our progress, but as I told the ladies, we need to keep fine-tuning things."

The Lady Bobcats will continue to fine-tune things Monday at 7:00 p.m against Brevard in their home opener at Tate Field .
