The College of Southern Maryland Hawks women’s soccer team coasted to an 11-1 win over the CCBC Catonsville Cardinals on October 8 in Catonsville, Md.
Sophomore Karleigh Cohen registered a career-high four goals in the contest, pushing her team-leading season total to nine. With this offensive outburst, Cohen surpassed her 2018 season total of six goals.
Cohen recorded 13 shots, nine of them on goal. She also added an assist on freshman Briana Mendoza‘s first goal of the season in the 18th minute that put the Hawks ahead 2-1.
Freshman Jennifer Nanosi had her second two-goal performance of the year, scoring in the 40th and 70th minute. She now has six goals on the year, second-most for CSM.
Nanosi took a game-high 15 shots with 10 being on goal. She notched her team-leading fifth assist of the season on sophomore Adrianna Ward‘s goal in the 89th minute.
This was the second game this season in which CSM took more than 50 shots; the other came on September 20 against Cecil College. In both games, 37 of those shots were on goal.
CSM continues to show opposing teams how many attacking options they have. With Mendoza’s goal and freshman Lila Biggar‘s tally in the 24th minute, all but two of the 14 field players that have played for CSM this year have scored a goal. Last year, only five of the 14 field players recorded goals.
With their record now at 4-6, CSM has eclipsed their win total from last season with two games remaining on this year’s schedule.
CSM’s next game will be on Saturday, October 19 against the Potomac State College of WVU Catamounts in Keyser, West Virginia.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
