Huskies hound SMU in first AAC match of season

University of Connecticut started off hot, scoring the game’s first goal after just eight minutes on a shot from Rachel Hill, her sixth of the season.

Not to be outdone, the Mustangs’ goal-scoring machine Shelby Redman got a rebound from a missed shot by first-year Kelsey Gorney and put it away for score number seven for the junior from Austin.

Both Gorney and Redman have been outstanding all season long, as the two have combined for 30 shots on goal and 25 total points to carry this team to a winning record entering conference play.

The draw was short-lived though, as Connecticut scored on a long shot from Huskies forward Julie Hubbard found the back of the net just before halftime to finalize the 2-1 score line.

The goalkeeper-by-committee experiment continued, as Head Coach Chris Petrucelli decided to pull Shannon Moroney out of the net after a shaky first half that saw 17 shots and two goals head towards the sophomore net minder.

In her place came junior Lauryn Bodden, who settled the team’s defense and produced a shutout in the second 45 minutes of play, despite 11 more shots coming her way.

“I thought we played better in the second half,” Petrucelli said to smumustangs.com. “We were tentative in the first half.”
