The Belmont Abbey women's soccer team scored three second half goals-two by junior forward Meghan Philp-and senior goalkeeper Hannah Kohls posted her second shutout of the year as the Crusaders women's soccer team gained a 3-0 Conference Carolinas victory at Emmanuel this afternoon. Belmont Abbey levels its conference record at 1-1 while improving to 2-4-2, while the Lions fall to 1-5-0 overall and 0-3-0 in league play.
The first 65 minutes settled nothing until Philp scored the first of her two goals at the 65:25 mark to produce the only marker the Crusaders would need.
Six minutes later, Philp struck again, as she scored off of a feed from Laura Shelton to double the Crusaders advantage.
Robyn Hatcher put the exclamation point on the shutout with less than five minutes left, netting her first goal of the season for the final goal of the match.
Kohls posted her second shutout of the year and the first shutout win, earning the other in a 0-0 tie at Newberry. She made three saves.
Belmont Abbey outshot the Lions 17-4 and held a commanding 10-1 edge in corner kicks.
