Release Written By: Heather Foster, Sports Information Student Assistant

MORRISVILLE, N.Y.– The Morrisville State women’s soccer team lost its second game today of the 2009 season against SUNY Maritime College, getting shut out by the Privateers 6-0.

Maritime netted their first goal in the 37th minute of play, an unassisted shot by Jorrie Trenkamp, a freshman from Tabernacle, NJ. Less than three minutes later, another unassisted goal this time from freshman Meghan Burke (Staten Island, NY).

The Mustangs started the second half with fresh legs but down by two goals. With a few close shots on goal from Danielle Crowley (Tonawanda, NY), freshman Laura Hanehan (Saratoga Springs, NY), and freshman Alyssa Tunkel (East Meadow, NY), the Mustangs couldn’t put the ball past Maritime keeper Courtney Marietta (Grantville, PA).

Nearly 20 minutes into the second half, Trenkamp nets a second goal, this time a header crossed in from Kaitlin Murray (Blairstown, NJ). No more than one minute later, Murray takes one for herself, netting an unassisted goal to make the score 4-0.

With six minutes left in the game, Trenkamp shoots and scores, giving her a hat trick against the Mustangs and tallying a fifth and final goal for the Privateers.

Kelly Beckley (Holland Patent, NY) from Morrisville and Audryanna Ward (West Sullivan, NY) from Maritime both received yellow cards for unsportsmanlike conduct during the first half.
