Shoup's Brace Keys Senior Day Shutout

CARLISLE, Pa. - Keira Shoup netted a pair of second-half goals as the Dickinson women's soccer team earned a 3-0 shutout over Washington College at Phyllis Joan Miller Memorial Field on a wet Saturday afternoon. Before the match the Red Devils honored their three seniors Charlotte Glancey, Jessica Kiefer, and Ashleigh Violette.

Dickinson almost found themselves on the scoreboard inside the opening three minutes as Meg Tate had a shot denied by Noah Smith. The Devils continued to keep up the attack with Emma Cooney, Shoup, Violette, and Tate all firing the ball at Smith who was tasked with making four more saves out of the eight attempts. Washington finally had their chance to test DC keeper Sophia Kavulich in the 35th-minute as Emily Morris had her blast turned away. Sophia Elguera gave Dickinson an opportunity to go to the break up 1-0, however, Smith made her seventh stop of the half to keep it scoreless.

The Shorewomen had a look at goal right out of the intermission with Lauren Maynor having her attempt saved by Kavulich at the 2:29 mark. Dickinson got the breakthrough in the 58th-minute when Allison Cudmore played in a beautiful ball from the right side into the box that Shoup rocketed past Smith for the 1-0 edge. Smith would then deny Emma Cooney in the 60th, before she was beaten once again by Shoup at the 62:21 mark off a feed from Conney. The Devils made it 3-0 with just over ten minutes to play when Violette sent it a ball from the left side that was tapped in by a sliding Allie Charnas for the 3-0 advantage. With 1:33 left Allison Cudmore had the home side's final chance of the season, but Smith made her eighth stop to preserve the final scoreline.
