Posted: September 11, 2004
Bethlehem, PA – Lehigh unleashed a fury of offense on Saturday afternoon and the results was the biggest shut out in the history of the program, a 9-0 win over Robert Morris.
With the win, the Mountain Hawks second consecutive, they go to 2-3 on the season, while the Colonials drop to 0-2.
Lehigh went to work early on the offensive end and never looked back as senior Sheila Clabby scored the first of her two goals just 18 seconds into the contest. Kelsey Smith then added another score less than one minute later and Lehigh was rolling.
Junior Marissa Iannarone then scored the next Mountain Hawk tally at the 15:27 mark, with Megan Linaberry getting in on the action 11 minutes later with her first ever collegiate goal. Lehigh headed into the half up 4-0.
Clabby opened the second half scoring with her second tally, and freshman Katie Noon continued her solid play, as she found the back of the net two times in a span of six minutes to push the lead up to 8-0. Jen Schmeltze then added a final score at the 55:14 mark and the Mountain Hawks had their second straight win.
The Mountain Hawks unleashed 30 shots on the day, and held the Colonials to just two. In goal for Lehigh, senior Jeanine Hoff got the start and did not face one shot on the day. Junior Meghan Gove then replaced her and stopped both shots she saw.
