Washington, D.C. (August 16, 2018)—The Mount St. Mary's women's soccer team opened the 2018 season with a 3-0 loss at American on Thursday night. The game marked the coaching debut for Mount St. Mary's head coach Tori Krause.
American (1-0) carried play throughout the majority of the first half, outshooting the Mountaineers by an 8-0 margin.

The Eagles added a pair of second-half tallies to close out the win. Jordan Tate scored in the 59th minute and Gabriela Maldonado made it 3-0 just over four minutes later. The Eagles held a 17-1 advantage in shots in the game.
