The SUNY Maritime Privateers proved no match for the Mighty Oaks as the women's soccer team breezed through with a 9-0 win over SUNY Maritime at Reinhart Field in the Bronx Sept. 7.

In goal, the duo of Kiki Hilmer and Megan Herbst provided a shutout for the Mighty Oaks.

The Mighty Oaks came out quickly with a shot on goal within the first 20 seconds of the game.

At the 7:26 mark of the first half, Carl opened the scoring with a quick strike off a free kick from Captain Madison Cummiskey, a defender. The Mighty Oaks added five more goals in the half to take a 6-0 lead into the halftime break. Shots at that point were 18-1.

"Today's game showcased our team's strengths and composure on the field. It was a great win to have before our upcoming games." said Cummiskey.

The women's soccer team takes the field again at home Sept. 13, 1pm versus SUNY Delhi.
