Kelly Scores First Career Goal in Loss to Dragons

Freshman forward Ashley Kelly scored her first career goal in the Seahawks' loss to the top team in Maryland JUCO, the Dragons of Howard Community College. The Seahawks fall to 0-3 for the year and currently sit in last place out of nine women's soccer programs in the conference.

After letting up a goal in the first minute and a half of the contest, Cecil College could not handle the force of the conference-leaders. The Dragons would score another five times before the break and went into halftime with a 6-0 advantage over the Seahawks.

The Dragons outshot the Seahawks 47-2, but freshman forward Ashley Kelly put one of those two shots in the goal for her first career goal as a Seahawk. Howard tallied three more goals in the second half for a final score of 9-1.

Sophomore Cheyenne Burchette tallied the most saves for the Seahawks with 13 during 45:00 minutes of play.

Cecil College women's soccer returns to action on Tuesday, September 25 when they take on Anne Arundel Community College at home. Kick off is set for 5:00 p.m. at Calvert Regional Park in North East, Md.
