Box Score

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Sophomore midfielder Jenny Borschel (St. Petersburg, Fla.) scored two early goals to lead the Jacksonville University women's soccer team to a 5-0 victory over Belmont Saturday afternoon at the Whitten Soccer Complex in Nashville, Tenn. The Dolphins stand at 3-5-1 overall and 2-0 in the Atlantic Sun Conference, while the Bruins fall to 3-5 and 1-1.

Borschel scored her first goal in the seventh minute, putting in a rebound off of redshirt freshman Stephanie Elgie's (London, Ontario) shot that bounced off Bruin goalkeeper Micaela Crowley. The Dolphins struck again in the 14th minute when freshman midfielder Marissa Bernard (West Hartford, Conn.) found Borschel on the back post, who headed in her second goal of the day. The Dolphins took the 2-0 lead into the half.

Two minutes after half, JU found the net again, when junior midfielder Regan Rone (South Amboy, N.J.) played the ball to freshman forward Jess Newport (Forked River, N.J.), who fired the shot past the keeper's right side from 20 yards out. In the 56th minute, senior defender Lauren Starmer (Oviedo, Fla.) scored her third career goal when freshman defender Emilie Howland (Bradenton, Fla.) laid it back to Starmer, whose shot clipped the bottom of the crossbar before crossing the goal line. Elgie finished off the scoring in the 81st minute, when she intercepted a goal kick and beat Crowley one-on-one for the score.

"We executed when we needed to today," said head coach Chris Kouns. "We still need to be more disciplined. But it was good that everyone got in and contributed in our win today."

The Dolphins outshot Belmont, 17-9, while also taking more corner kicks than the Bruins, 5-2. Sophomore Michelle Kmiotek (Tampa, Fla.) and junior Jennifer O'Malley (Ormond Beach, Fla.) split time at goalkeeper to combine for the Dolphins' fourth shutout of the season.

JU returns to Ashley Sports Complex on Friday, Oct. 1, to take on Mercer in A-Sun play, with the match scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
