The Emory University Women's Soccer team bounced back on Monday afternoon, defeating the University of Redlands by a count of 3-0 to improve to 2-1 on the season.
For the second time in their first three contests, the Eagles dominated in all facets from start to finish. Emory outshot Redlands 25-1, including a 12-0 margin in shots on goal, and did not allow the Bulldogs to record a single shot until the 90th minute of the game.
Three different Emory players tallied a goal to power the Eagles offense. Junior Anna Gurney netted her second goal of the young season to open the scoring in the 24th minute, finding the back of the net off the pass from freshman Caroline Kolski.
Emory tacked on two more goals in the second half with sophomore Grace Edgarton scoring her second marker of the year in the 59th minute. Junior Melissa Ardizzone scored the capper for the Eagles, putting one past the Redlands' goalkeeper with just 35 seconds remaining in the game. Both Gurney and sophomore Jordan Doak collected assists on the play.
Sophomore Dani Staffin improved to 2-1 for the Eagles and in the process, recorded her first ever clean sheet of her career.
The Eagles are in back action next weekend with the Roanoke Invitational at Roanoke College. Emory is scheduled to face No.-16 Lynchburg on Saturday at 1:00 PM followed by a date with Roanoke College at 5:00 Pm on Sunday evening.
