Box Score

DELAND, Fla. - Navy scored five first-half goals to sink the Jacksonville University women's soccer team, 5-0, on Sunday afternoon at the Stetson Soccer Complex in DeLand, Fla.

The Midshipmen (4-0) recorded eight shots on goal in the first half, while the Dolphins (2-2) wrapped up their third game in five days.

"Unfortunately you will have game with 16 underclassmen where you are not prepared to compete mentally nor physically," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "Congratulations to Navy because they were well-coached, well-conditioned and were sharp enough to punish us today for our mistakes."

The Midshipmen grabbed the initial lead when Meggie Curran scored in the left corner of the goal on an assist from CiAnna Weikle and Brigitte Fox. Shelly Moeller scored on a header less then five minutes later to put the lead at 2-0. At the 12-minute mark, Lauren Bresnahan scored on an assist from Julie Reynolds. Curran and Weikle each scored during the 20-minute frame to complete the Midshipmen offense in the first half.

Sophomore Keri Zwikker had a chance to score for the Dolphins, but the ball deflected off the right post of the goal in the 40-minute mark. Sophomore Heidi Dettmer recorded a shot for the Dolphins in the second half, while senior Michelle Kmiotek tallied eight saves in goal.

"Hopefully, we showed some growth in the second half," said Kouns. "We need to carry it over into the games this weekend."

The Dolphins return to action at home on Friday against Georgia Southern at 6 p.m.
