1999 Season Recap

1999 Season Recap

The Salisbury University women's soccer team began its 1999 season by winning eight straight games, seven of which were by shutout. The squad used another strong late season run to make an impressive run at the Capital Athletic Conference Championship. SU ended its season with a 13-5 record overall and a 5-1 record in the CAC.

The team had a great run to begin the season but would drop four out of matches midway through the season. The Sea Gulls would pick up their games over their next four matches where they used four shutouts and a 19-0 scoring advantage to steamroll into the CAC final. Unfortunately, SU ran into another tough Mary Washington squad, which defeated the Sea Gulls 2-1.

Salisbury was led by the fine efforts of senior midfielder Dana Earl, senior fullback Amy Gallagher, and junior goalkeeper Amy Forbes. The three were all named to the All-CAC first team while sophomore forward Cindy Maxfield, sophomore midfielder Meredith Bingham, and sophomore fullback Ellen Mirsky all collected All-CAC second team laurels. Forbes led the CAC in save percentage with a .852 clip while Earl stood third in goals (18).
