BALTIMORE, MD.---After sitting through a lightning delay for the second consecutive match, the Campbell women's soccer team responded in similar fashion by securing another shutout in the 2-0 win over the University of Maryland-Baltimore County on Sunday evening at UMBC Stadium.
The Camels, who improve to 2-0 on the young season, received contributions from a mix of experienced returners and talented newcomers once again. Ashley Clark, a freshman forward from Cary, N.C., secured her second consecutive game-winning goal in the 33rd minute when she scored on a breakaway to put CU in front. Seniors Marisa Muller (Wilmington, Del.) and Annabelle Gibney (Melbourne, Australia) each assisted on the rookie's second goal of the season.
UMBC outshot CU 5-3 in the first half, but the Retrievers were unable to capitalize on any of its attempts.
In a reversal of roles, Campbell would be the offensive aggressor in the second half, finishing the period with a 6-2 advantage in the shots category.
The Camels will return to Buies Creek to prepare for its home opener on Wednesday against the Francis Marion Patriots. FMU will enter the matchup 1-1 overall with a loss to UNC-Wilmington and a victory over High Point on its ledger. First kick is scheduled for 7 p.m. UMBC will travel to Temple on Friday for a 4 p.m. matchup.
