Monmouth women's soccer continue winning ways against Hampton

Monmouth women's soccer defeated Hampton, 3-1, behind a strong all-around team performance. Monmouth improved to 10-2-1 and 3-1 in the CAA under Head Coach Kylee Flynn as they continued their winning ways on Thursday. Flynn mixed it up against Hampton as she gave other players opportunities to play like Kayla Reed, Summer Reimet and Ariana Keily. Defender Laura Bruno discussed about what it's like to play under coach Flynn.

"She has a high soccer IQ, knows the game really well so it's helpful to have a coach like that," Bruno said about coach Flynn.

Monmouth had a total of 29 shots, with 12 on goal against Hampton. The defense was tight during the whole game as they gave up only one goal from Zaria Ascue at the 66:34. This team was locked in from the beginning as they spaced out well, won most of their duels, and got to their spots against Hampton. The most impressive thing was that they did not give up any corner kicks in the entire match.

Graduate student Lauren Karabin got things started for Monmouth at the 19:51 mark as she scored her third goal of the season that was assisted on by Chloe Ferreira. Then, freshman Summer Reimet drew a foul in the box and was able to convert the penalty with a shot in the bottom left corner to extend the lead to 2-0 at the 31:56 mark. Junior Rachel Ludwick answered back with a quick goal after Hampton scores at the 66:34 mark to make it a 3-1 lead as she scored her fourth goal of the season.

Monmouth women's soccer have shown that they are one of the top teams in the CAA and being one of the top soccer teams. After the game, Jersey Sporting News spoke to junior defender Lauren Bruno and sophomore Goalkeeper Cassie Coster talking about Thursday's win.

"It was a good win," Bruno said about the game. "We love to win at home.  We had a lot of shots, wish have gotten more and the shutout, but I am happy with our team's performance and get a chance for a lot of girls on the field."

Coster took it a step further and talked about the next game on the schedule.

"Hopefully we can take this energy into our game this weekend against William & Mary on the road," Coster said.
