LEXINGTON, Va. – The No. 15 Washington and Lee women's soccer team defeated Guilford, 3-0, on Tuesday for its program-record 11th consecutive win.
The win gives the Generals a 12-0-1 overall record, with a 5-0 mark in the ODAC, while the 11th straight win breaks the program record that was set by the 1997 team that started the season 10-0 before suffering its first loss.
Junior forward Sydney von Rosenberg (Boerne, Texas/Boerne-Samuel V. Champion) put the Generals on the board in the 39th minute with her third goal of the season. Senior forward Kelsey Anderson (Alexandria, Va./Episcopal) beat a defender into the box and fired a shot from the left side that was saved, but von Rosenberg was there for the rebound.
In the 70th minute, senior midfielder Kristen Castle (Gambrills, Md./South River) tallied her second goal of the season. A free kick was headed out of the box and came right to Castle, who fired a one-time shot through the Guilford defense and into the bottom right corner of the frame to double the W&L lead.
The final goal of the game was added to the board in the 73rd minute when first-year forward Lindsay White (Greenville, S.C./JL Mann) spun off to the right of a defender, took two touches inside the box and beat the keeper to the near post for her seventh goal of the season.
White led the way for the W&L offense with six shots in the game, putting three attempts on goal. Castle, Anderson and first-year forward Sophia Roche' (Ashburn, Va./Broad Run) came in next at five shots each and a combined six shots on target, with Anderson earning an assist on von Rosenberg's goal in the first half.
Guilford sophomore midfielder Karol Jaimes and first-year midfielder Sarah Hall took two shots each to total the four team shots in the contest.
Sophomore goalkeeper Jasmine Furin (Charlottesville, Va./St. Anne's-Belfield School) (2-0) earned her second straight win, playing the final 14:46 of the first half. Sophomore keeper Grace Coombs (Boca Raton, Fla./Saint Andrews School) started the game, playing the opening 30:14, before coming on to play the entirety of the second half. The Generals' defensive unit did not allow a single shot on goal in the game.
