Soto scores first career goal in 7-0 shutout of Agnes Scott
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Senior Brittany Soto scored her first career goal in the Birmingham-Southern women’s soccer team’s 7-0 shutout of Agnes Scott College, Sunday evening at BSC Soccer Park. The Panthers move to 3-2 on the season with the win, while the Scotties drop to 2-5.
Junior Alicia Plotky was also impressive with a hat trick of goals, as well as two assists.
Freshman M'Kayl Lewis and juniors Linda Amaya and Emmy Hollis also recorded goals. Freshman Ashley Bradshaw tallied two assists, and freshman Kelly Craft recorded one assist.
Freshman goalkeeper Richelle Byrd played the entire game for BSC, tallying her third shutout of the season. The Panthers out-shot ASC 21-1, led by Plotky with five shots.
“I’m really proud of our execution tonight,” Head Coach Benji Walton said. “We’ve played in a lot of tight games and had many previous opportunities but weren’t able to finish. It was good for the team to get more involved and take advantage of those opportunities tonight.”
The Panthers open Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play on the road next weekend, traveling to face Austin College, Friday, and then taking on University of Dallas, Sunday.
