Tigerville, S.C.—Monica Colwell had a career high five goals while her sister Nikki Colwell countered with four of her own, leading North Greenville to a program best 20-0 win over Truett McConnell College, Monday evening in Tigerville.
The win over the Bears is NGU's second win in a row after a Saturday afternoon victory of the College of Charleston. The 20 points scored sets a new program mark for most goals in a game, besting the previous record of 15 set this past Saturday.
NGU wasted little time taking the lead as Elizabeth Carey scored just 40 seconds into the game. Monica Colwell earned her first of the game at the 1:56 mark to give NGU a 2-0 lead very early in the contest. The Crusaders shot a program high 62 percent after scoring 20 goals on just 32 shot attempts. NGU also registered 12 assists in the process led by Emily Colson who had five.
The Crusaders bested their previous program record of 15 goals in the first half as the team eclipsed the 16-point mark with less than a minute left before halftime after back to back goals from Erin Grimsley. 10 different players scored at least one goal for the Crusaders while five players scored at least two.
Also scoring multiple goals for the Crusaders was Elizabeth Carey and Samantha Poppleton who both had two. The Crusaders were content to run the clock in the second half as the scoring slowed significantly. Nikki Colwell popped the cork with a goal at the 1:21 mark while Candace Petit scored about six minutes later. Courtney Lane and Carey also got into the second half scoring with a goal a piece.
The win improve the Crusaders to 2-6 on the season. NGU will look to earn its first Conference Carolinas win in program history on March 21st when the team travels to Misenheimer, North Carolina to take on Pfeiffer University.
