Three seniors score as Salisbury takes down York on senior day, 3-0

SALISBURY, Md. – Three different seniors scored goals on Saturday afternoon as the Salisbury University women's soccer team defeated York College of Pennsylvania, 3-0, on senior day and pink day.

A special ceremony was held for the 11 Salisbury seniors prior to the start of the match for senior day. The Sea Gulls also raised money and awareness for breast cancer during the game, holding raffles for Salisbury gear and blankets with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Salisbury began the contest by starting all 11 seniors, including the injured Victoria Luc who had a ceremonial touch before Head Coach Kwame Lloyd put junior Alesha Seifert in goal for Luc.

The Sea Gulls got started quickly, taking the first four shots of the contest before the Spartans registered their first shot just over 12 minutes into the game.

At 19:04, Salisbury got on the scoreboard when senior Logan O'Meara scored off an assist from senior Jenna DeLetto. DeLetto dribbled into the left of the box and chipped it to the right where O'Meara was there to finish, giving the Gulls a 1-0 lead.

Four minutes later, Salisbury had a chance to take an early 2-0 lead when O'Meara took another shot on goal, but York goalkeeper Kate Lutte was there to make the save.

Less than a minute later, the Spartans went on the attack when Kirsten Good took a shot on net, but Seifert came through, recording her first save of the contest.

With less than eight minutes to go in the first half, freshman Jenna Taylor put a header on goal, but Lutte once again picked up the save.

In the second half, both defenses were tested as each team notched two shots on goal in the first 35 minutes of the period. Seifert posted two big saves in the span, keeping York off the board.

At 81:28, the Sea Gulls came through with an insurance goal when senior Christine Clark scored her third goal of the season when she took advantage of a deflection off a Spartan defender's head after a corner kick, sending the ball into the upper-left corner of the net.

Just over a minute later, Salisbury struck again and capped the scoring in the match when DeLetto took a ball from the left side of the box and finished to the right side of the goal.

Seifert earned her fourth win of the season in goal for the Sea Gulls, tallying three saves in the shutout effort. Lutte picked up five saves in goal for the Spartans.

Salisbury will be back in action on Wednesday, October 21 when it travels to take on Christopher Newport University in another Capital Athletic Conference matchup. That game is set for 7 p.m.
