BETHLEHEM, Pa. --- The Moravian College women's soccer squad jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first four minutes and finish with an 8-0 victory over Keystone College in non-conference action under the lights on John Makuvek Field to close out Family Day on Saturday.

The Greyhounds, now 4-1-1 on the year after their third straight shutout, took that early lead when freshman forward Megan Chesney netted her team-leading fourth and fifth goals of the season. She opened the scoring by drilling a rebound of a shot by junior midfielder Juliana Caranci that bounced off of the cross bar into the net. Just 31 seconds later, Chesney buried a crossing pass from senior forward Gabby Stelzmiller. Stelzmiller, who had three assists in the contest, would find the back of the net off of a pass from Chesney in the 14th minute.

The Hounds pushed the lead to 4-0 in the 23rd minute when senior midfielder Shae Duka headed in a corner kick by Stelzmiller for her second goal of the season, and just over a minute later, senior midfielder Aimee Manley headed in another corner kick by Stelzmiller for her second marker of the year. Sophomore forward Oonagh Breen netted her first goal of the season in the 31st minute as she scored off of a pass from junior forward Charlotte Smith  to give the Blue and Grey a 6-0 advantage at the intermission.

Moravian would add two more goals late in the second half when freshman midfielder Morgan Covart netted her first collegiate goal in the 78th minute and sophomore forward Cat Cole scored her first marker of the year 1:20 later off of a feed from Smith.

Sophomore goalie Siobhan O'Sullivan-Evangelista and junior keeper Jamie Daly each played a half for their fourth combined shutout of the season. The Greyhounds finished the match with a 29-2 advantage in shots and a 17-1 edge in corner kicks.

Moravian is slated to return to action on Wednesday, September 19 in a non-conference contest at Albright College beginning at 7:00 p.m.
