GETTYSBURG, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr soccer team traveled to central PA earlier Saturday afternoon to take on an undefeated Gettysburg squad. The hosts showcased just how they have acquired their perfect record so far this year, jumping ahead early on route to a 5-0 win in the contest. However, there were still several positives to take from the performance, as the Owls battled hard the whole way through. Grecia Prieto and Carlie Hansen combined for 10 saves on the day for Bryn Mawr.
It was an early penalty kick that got the Bullets on the scoreboard, with Brooke Priddy slotting home from the spot after a foul in the box less than three minutes into the game. That certainly put a wrench into Bryn Mawr's gameplan, but it also opened the game up early. Gettysburg had several chances in the ensuing minutes, and then Izzy Finkler got Bryn Mawr's first opportunity with a shot in the 12th minute. However, that effort was saved, and the Bullets would immediately come back the other way and score a goal less than a minute later on a shot from outside the box. Then, the hosts increased their lead even further just two minutes after that, scoring on a breakaway to make it a 3-0 game. They would add one more goal before halftime, and Bryn Mawr's lone other opportunity from Elizabeth Kiely was also stopped by the Bullets' goaltender.
The hosts continued to pepper the offensive area early in the second half, hitting the crossbar with one shot. On two other attempts, Carlie Hansen made some strong saves to keep the Owls' deficit where it was. Isabella Rowe would get the first chance of the half for the Owls, but her shot went just high. That would ultimately be the final chance of the game for the Owls, and Gettysburg added one more insurance goal to ultimately claim the 5-0 win.
Bryn Mawr will look to rebound from today's tough loss when they get right back in action in the middle of next week. The Owls will travel to Muhlenberg on Tuesday for another Centennial Conference tilt, with gametime slated for 4:00 PM in Allentown.
