Dover, Del. (Nov. 2, 2019) --- The Delaware State women’s soccer team had its highest scoring output in four years, posting a 7-0 victory over Maine Fort Kent in the Hornets’ season finale at Alumni Stadium today. DSU exploded for six goals in the second half after holding a 1-0 at the break.
Alyssa Coustenis, one of five seniors playing her final game at Delaware State, scored two goals and assisted on another to help the Hornets avoid a winless season (1-17).
Fellow senior Katrina Silva and Mary O’Conner (jr.) each tallied a goal and an assist, while Geligne Franklin (fr.), Braelynn South (fr.) and Ashley Ventura (jr.) also cracked the scoring column for the Hornets.
Delaware State struck quickly in the contest when O’Conner scored her team-leading third goal of the season less than two minutes into the contest (1:36). She also led the Hornets with nine points this season.
The score remained 1-0 for more than 52 minutes before the Hornets struck again. South scored her second goal of the season off a pass from Coustenis in the 54th minute to give DSU a 2-0 lead.
A little more than four minutes later (58th minute), Silva notched her first career goal in her final DSU contest to stretch the Hornets’ lead to 3-0.
DSU opened up a 4-0 lead when Franklin fired a shot past Maine Fort Kent goal keeper Lorelei Breitfield off a feed from O’Conner in the 64th minute.
Ventura scored an unassisted goal in the 73rd minute to give the Hornets a 6-0 lead.
Coustenis ended her college career in style, notching a goal in the 89th minute and another in the final minute of the match to close out the scoring.
