GAINESVILLE, Fla. – With a dominant 8-0 win over the Stetson Hatters, the Florida Gators women’s soccer team extended their shutout streak to four games to open the season, a new program record. This was Florida’s first 8 goal match since 1999.
Megan Hinnenkamp got the Gators going with her first collegiate goal in the 17th minute on a through ball from Tori Grambo. Just two minutes later Hinnenkamp secured her brace with an unassisted goal to the far-post.
Two minutes after Hinnenkamp’s second, Molly Grant scored her first goal for the Gators after a corner kick bounced around and found her in front of the net.
Grant got her brace in the 28th minute on an assist by Charlotte McClure to give the Gators a 4-0 lead at the half.
Lena Bailey, Julianne Leskauskas, Liwa Nilsson and Maddy Rhodes all scored one goal a piece in the second-half to take care of the Hatters.
The Florida defense stepped up once again tonight, allowing only one Stetson shot.
Alexa Goldberg played the first-half in the goal, and Jayden Emmanuel commanded the second-half to combine for the clean sheet.
Head coach Samantha Bohon was able to rotate many players tonight to get valuable minutes for the second-team. Twenty-seven Gators saw game-action Sunday.
The Gators will head to Atlanta to take on the Kennesaw State University Owls on Sunday, September 3. The game is set to kick-off at 3 p.m. on ESPN+.
