Sophomore forward Erika Chapman (Bradenton, Fla.) scored two goals in the second half and sophomore Dianne Herlihy (Key West, Fla.) added two assists, to lead the Dolphins to a convincing 5-1 decision over Jacksonville State Thursday afternoon in Atlantic Sun conference play. With the win, the Dolphins improve to 6-3 overall and 3-2 in the Atlantic Sun. The Gamecocks fall to 2-4-1 overall, 1-2 in Atlantic Sun action.
JU took a 1-0 lead with just eight seconds left to play in the first half when Herlihy connected with junior midfielder Kristen Holstrom (Anaheim, Calif.) whose shot curled into the back corner of the net for the score.
The Dolphins opened the second half where they left off in the first, as Chapman scored the first of her two goals less than a minute into the half, to put JU up 2-0. The Gamecocks cut the lead in half, 2-1, in the 59th minute when forward Owen Crosland took a pass from forward Ashley Martin and beat goalie Stephanie Fowler (Seffner, Fla.). The Dolphins bounced back to retain the two-goal advantage at 3-1, just 17 seconds later, when Chapman scored her second goal, taking a feed from Herlihy and lofting a shot over the Gamecock goalie's head into the net. The Dolphins lead increased to 4-1 behind a penalty kick in the 76th minute by senior defender Yvonna Rowinski (Los Angeles, Calif.). JU took an insurmountable 5-1 lead on its final goal, in the 81st minute, when freshman forward Michaelene Cadiz (Lutz, Fla.) took a though-ball from the foot of sophomore midfielder Erin Bitterli (St. Petersburg, Fla) and beat the goalie one-on-one.
The Dolphins look to continue their winning ways on Saturday, September 29, as they host Samford University at Ashley Sports Complex at 2 p.m.
