BUFFALO, NY- It was a beautiful day in Buffalo NY for The Saints as they were 10-0 winners in a totally one sided match against Villa Maria College. Things started to escalate from the opening seconds when #4 Krista Tabacchi hit the post from a great passing move from the kick off, so it came as no surprise when 2 minutes on the clock and #9 Tara Cratsley's great through ball saw #8 Hannah Piemme dribble in and out of two defenders to calmly put past the goalkeeper for the lead. Things only got better as the Saints quick passing combinations opened up the Villa Maria defense and by the half way stage the Saints were up 8-0 with 2 goals each for #4 (Krista Tabacchi) & #8 (Hannah Piemme) 2 goals for defender #3 (Marissa Keith) a goal apiece from defenders #2 (Rachel Skelton) and #14 (Juliana Angrignon) in what was a fantastic display of how far the team have progressed since the start of the season. The second half saw #4 (Krista Tabacchi) and #8 (Hannah Piemme) secure their hat tricks and a great day at the office for the Saints, with the assists provided by: Juliana Angrignon (2) Rachel Skelton (1) Taylor Mclaughlin (2) and Tara Cratsley (3).
The Game saw the Saints record a whopping 36 shots on goal whilst limiting Villa Maria to just 3. #0 GK (Cierra Barber) displayed great footwork and passing techniques when called upon to make sure the Saints kept the shutout the entire game.
