Caroline Bailey

ROANOKE, Va. – Five different goal scorers combined for 10 goals in the Washington and Lee women's soccer team's 10-0 win over Hollins on Saturday afternoon in ODAC action.

With the win, the Generals (7-4-2, 4-3-1 ODAC) remain unbeaten against Hollins (2-12-1, 1-7-0 ODAC) since 1998, going 21-0-0 in those games, including shutout wins in each of the last five meetings between the schools.

Sophomore forward Sydney von Rosenberg (Boerne, Texas/Boerne-Samuel V. Champion) opened the scoring early in the first half, needing only 19 seconds to score her sixth goal of the season. Senior midfielder Megan Engeland (Yardley, Pa./Pennsbury) doubled the lead to two goals in the second minute followed by another goal from von Rosenberg in the 10th minute.

The Generals' lead reached four in the 17th minute on a goal from junior defender Kit Hamill (New Canaan, Conn./St. Luke's School). Junior forward Caroline Bailey (Decatur, Ga./Decatur) added a goal in the 40th minute and again in the 45th minute to increase the Generals' lead to 6-0 before the halftime break.

In the second half, sophomore midfielder Lauren Kaplinsky (Winnetka, Ill./North Shore Country Day) scored her first career goal, the seventh of the game for the Blue and White. First-year forward Emily Leding (Little Rock, Ark./Pulaski Academy) logged her first two collegiate goals in the 63rd and 67th minutes, followed by a third goal from Bailey in the 86th minute to cap the scoring in the game.

Bailey's three goals were the first three of her college career as the junior forward tallied 10 shots in the game and put five on goal. Sophomore forward Megan Duncanson (Hillsborough, Calif./Crystal Springs Uplands) totaled four assists, which ranks as the second most assists in a single-game in W&L women's soccer history behind Katie Rossi's '15 five against Sweet Briar in 2013.

Sophomore midfielder Natalie Choo (Cincinnati, Ohio/Cincinnati Country Day) tallied her first career points on a pair of assists, one in each half, to go along with two shots in the contest. Von Rosenberg's two goals gives her seven on the season, second on the team, as the sophomore now has two multi-goal games in 2018. Engeland scored her team-best ninth goal on the only shot she attempted. Engeland now trails Fontaine Marcoux '03 by one goal for sixth on the program's all-time goals list (37) and is now tied with Kate Bidwell '01 for the eighth most points in program history (79).

Hamill's first-half goal was the first of her career as she took two shots in the game.

For Hollins, junior midfielder Miranda Springton and first-year midfielder Madisen Charles shot once each to post both of Hollins' shots in the game.

W&L junior goalkeeper Leeann Passaro (Upper Saddle River, N.J./The Lawrenceville School) (1-0) earned the win in her first game action of 2018, making the save on the only shot she faced in the 32nd minute. Hollins junior goalkeeper Kendra Rich (1-9) took the loss after making five saves in 90 minutes of work.

For the game, the Generals outshot Hollins, 27-2, including a 20-1 margin in the first half, and took six corners while allowing none for Hollins.

W&L will return to the pitch on Wednesday when it faces Ferrum in a 4:00 pm ODAC matchup.
