 The Scots Women's Soccer squad took on USA South foe Wesleyan College (Ga.), defeating them 7-0 behind a great offensive effort.

Maryville dominated the pitch against the Wolves, as MC totaled 45 shots to score 7 goals. Wesleyan only had one shot on the day, as Taylor Frizen and Shannon Reagan led the team scoring three and two goals respectively. Abbie Anderson tallied a goal for her first of the season, along with Lexi Reeves scoring her first of the year.

Frizen scored early with a shot to make its way into the net by an assist from Lexi Hill. This would be her fifth goal of the season, before she scores another goal in the first half. The Wolves' goalie stopped an offensive effort, before Frizen put her foot on the ball to secure her second goal.

The Scots had plenty of shots on goal over Wesleyan. In the first half, the Orange and Garnet had 26 shots while Wesleyan was never able to get a single shot off. From those 26 shots, Maryville had 10 on goal.

Reagan picked up her ninth goal for the season late in the first half while being assisted by Emilie Guigou. A few minutes later Reeves scores her first goal of the season on an assist from Kelsey Green.

Six seconds into the second half Reagan would secure her second goal on the pitch for the day being assisted by Frizen.

This goal set the pace early for the second half, as the Scots shot another 19 times in the second half. There would be another eight on goal leaving the squad with an outstanding total of 45 shots and 18 on frame.

Anderson would tally a goal 15 minutes into the second half recording her first of the season. Six minutes later, Frizen would secure her hat trick as Reagan assisted the Scots' final goal of the game.

Frizen would tell us that "it's more satisfying than anything. It's nice to see people on the team scoring and getting goals." She would continue in talking about her and Shannon Regan's relationship at forward. "It is definitely competitive. We do love each other so we do help each other score."

Reagan says scoring "really is something special because it's something that you practice over and over."

The Scots women will be on the road for their next game at Berea College in Berea, Ky., on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Maryville will be moving on now, 5-4, taking their first game in the conference.
