Emmitsburg, Md. (October 13, 2017) – Mount St. Mary's University collected a 2-0 win over Wagner on Senior Night behind goals from Hannah Logue and Gianna Pomykacz. The win pushed the Mount to 5-9-1 overall and 2-3 in conference play.
Mount St. Mary's honored Chloe Cain, Marcella Fegler, Jordan Fine, Kiley Graham and Kristen Morawski with a halftime ceremony as part of Senior Night, recognizing their contributions to the program and university throughout their time at the Mount.
The Mount had an early opportunity and nearly got on the board just over five minutes into the contest. Logue raced to the end line to save the ball from going out and sent a pass to middle of the box to Jenna West. West fired a shot, but goalie Katie Viscardi got a hand on it and deflected it off the crossbar.
Just a few minutes later, the Mount did find the back of the net to take the lead. Kayla Hughes sent a long thru ball to Logue, who picked it up and tried working her way around the goalie. Viscardi dove and got a hand on the ball to knock it off Logue's foot, but the rookie raced back to the loose ball and scored on the open net to give the Mount a 1-0 advantage with her first collegiate score.
Mount St. Mary's doubled up on its lead just under 10 minutes into the second half. West worked her way down the near sideline and sent a cross to Pomykacz, who headed it into the upper left corner from six yards out. The goal was Pomykacz' first of the year, while West picked up her team-high fourth assist of the season.
With under 10 minutes to play, Pomykacz made a nice move past a defender and sent a shot towards the far side, but hit off the post. Cain had an opportunity from a few yards out off the rebound, but sent her shot high.
The Mount defense clamped down to close out the 2-0 victory. Maggie Barron earned her third shutout in the team's last six contests.
The Mountaineers, who dominated time of possession in the tilt, outshot Wagner by a 21-7 margin, including a 12-4 advantage in the second half.
The Mount is back in action on October 22 at Robert Morris at 1 p.m.
