Manser Scores Pair to Lead UMW Women's Soccer Past Ferrum, 3-0
Freshman Anna Manser scored a pair of goals to lead the University of Mary Washington women's soccer team to a 3-0 victory over Ferrum College on Monday at a steamy Battleground. The Eagles improve to 2-0 on the season.
Manser opened the scoring at 22:32, taking a through ball from junior Lizzie Weast and ripping a shot into goal from the left. UMW, who held an 11-0 advantage in shots in the first half, led 1-0 at intermission.
The Eagles continued to dominate possession in the second half, posting a 15-0 advantage in shots in the second frame. The first to find the nets was sophomore Meghan Turney, who headed in a Taylor Decker corner kick at 67:20 to up the UMW lead to 2-0. Manser scored again less than a minute later on an Anna Brauch assist to cap the scoring at 68:12.
Mary Washington will return to action on Saturday when they host Coast Guard Academy at 12:30 p.m. as part of the UMW Soccer Classic.
