LEXINGTON, Va. – Junior midfielder Catherine Haufe scored two goals and sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Davis recorded the shutout as Bridgewater College blanked Salisbury 3-0 Saturday afternoon at the W&L Classic.
The game was delayed by lightning for nearly an hour with the Eagles leading 3-0 and 28:19 left in the seconc half. The game was stopped for good by a second lightning delay with less than three minutes remaining.
Haufe put the Eagles on the board early in the first half when she dribbled from midfield toward the top of the circle, avoided a defender and put her shot into the top part of the goal just under the crossbar for a 1-0 Bridgewater lead.
Bridgewater scored again in the 29th minute when a pair of freshmen teamed up for the goal on a set piece. Hanna Randolph took a corner kick and sent a low ball through the box and Taylor Dudley placed her shot inside the near post to put the Eagles on top 2-0.
Haufe tallied her second goal just five minutes into the second half, giving Bridgewater a comfortable 3-0 lead. Haufe now leads the Eagles in goals scored this season with four.
The Seagulls had their best chance in the 54th minute when the Eagles were whistled for a foul in the box. Salisbury's Alyssa Chesney took the PK, but Davis made a diving stop to deny the Seagulls.
Salisbury held the edge in total shots 14-11 and corner kicks 5-3. The shutout is the third of the season for the Eagles and the second for Davis who finished the match with six saves.
Bridgewater, now 3-1 overall, is back in action Sunday at noon vs. Franklin & Marshall on the second day of the W&L Classic. On Saturday, F&M lost 4-0 to Washington and Lee as the Generals controlled play in the final 45 minutes after the contest was tied 0-0 at the half.
