Cardinals pick up 3-0 road win at Randolph-Macon

ASHLAND, Va. – CUA made it two wins in as many tries on Wednesday with a 3-0 road victory over Randolph-Macon.  The Cardinals received goals from Taylor Elliott, Colleen Harwood and Rebecca Lukaszczyk, and the defense limited the Yellow Jackets to only eight shots.

Elliott got CUA going with her first collegiate goal 17 minutes into the first half.  Maura Campbell assisted on the score.

With less than four minutes to play until halftime, Lukaszczyk fed Harwood for the Cardinals’ second goal of the day.

Lukaszczyk then got into the act, netting a goal at the 59:09 mark of the second half, to give CUA a comfortable three-goal cushion.

The Cardinals finished with a commanding 32-8 advantage in shots and 14-4 in penalty corners.

Lukaszczyk led the way with six shots, while Katie Bertrand, Harwood and Hayley Wright tallied five apiece.

Megan Comunale sent back five shots in goal to earn the win for the Cardinals, while Yellow Jackets goal keeper Nicole Woodworth stopped 20 shots.

CUA returns to action on Saturday, September 8 when the Cardinals open their home schedule against Elizabethtown.  Start time from inside Cardinal Stadium is set for 1 p.m.
