Carly Miller’s 11 Points Spark Mount St. Mary’s in 23-13 Win Over Radford

Emmitsburg, Md. (March 25, 2017) – Freshman Carly Miller tallied a career-high 11 points on five goals and six assists as she was one of eight Mountaineers to register a multi-goal game in Mount St. Mary's University's 23-13 win over Radford on Saturday afternoon at Waldron Family Stadium. The 23 goals for the Mount were the most in a game since a 23-0 victory at Saint Francis U back in 2008.

Miller's 11 points marked the most in a contest this season for the Mountaineers. The rookie notched three goals and four assists in the first half before following it up with a pair of scores and two assists in the second. Sammie Knapp, Emily Davis and Marley Heller tallied three goals apiece, and Kelly Maloney, Jannel Daufenbach, Kate Kinsella and Taylor Carhart scored two each.

Elicia Wells, who entered into net with eight minutes remaining in the first period, stopped 10 of 14 shots on goal for the Mount.

Emma Rogers led the way for Radford with five goals and one assist, while Callie Bonnel added four goals and Lindsey Carroll registered a goal and four assists.

Jenny Davis took the loss in goal for the Highlanders, stopping just one of 10 shots on goal. Maddie Mashewske replaced Davis just over eight minutes into the contest, making five saves the rest of the way.

Both teams came out of the gates hot, combining for 17 goals in the first 12 minutes of play. With Radford leading 3-2 at the 24:45 mark, the Mountaineers rattled off seven straight goals, with five of those coming on free-position attempts. Miller recorded three goals during the stretch, and the Mount opened a 9-3 advantage following the seven unanswered.

The Highlanders responded with four of the next five goals, including a pair from Bonnel, to close the gap to 10-7 with 17:55 showing on the clock.

Three straight tallies from the Mount pushed its lead to 13-7 before the two teams traded tallies the rest of the period as the Mount headed into the locker room with a 15-10 advantage.

With the Mountaineers still holding a five-goal cushion at the 20:40 mark of the second half, they registered five consecutive goals while holding the Highlanders scoreless during the 14-minute stretch to pad their lead to 22-12 and essentially put the game out of reach with just 6:45 remaining.

The Mount went on for the 23-13 victory to collect its first win of the season, moving to 1-5. With the loss, Radford dropped to 4-5 on the year.

The Mountaineers outshot Radford by a 40-32 margin and converted 9-of-16 free-position shots.
