BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Courtesy of a hat track by junior Bailey Kimbell and a goal from freshman Jessie Sperry, the Birmingham-Southern women's soccer team shut out Agnes Scott College at home, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at the BSC Soccer Park.
The Panthers move to 3-2-1 on the season, while the Scotties fall to 3-4.
Kimbell's first goal came in the first minute of the game, only 38 seconds in, off a ball crossed from freshman Avery Newcomb. Although the Panthers had plenty of chances, the score still sat at 1-0 by the end of the half.
The game went into a lightning delay at the end of the halftime break, a delay which ended up lasting nearly an hour, before play resumed at approximately 5:50 p.m.
Kimbell scored again in the 53rd minute, this time off an assist from freshman Sammy Manzo, and then recorded her third goal of the game (and sixth of the season) two minutes later off a ball from sophomore Devin McDonald.
BSC scored the final goal of the game in the 81st minute when Sperry scored from close-range to put the Panthers up 4-0.
BSC took 27 shots, 12 on-frame; Agnes Scott recorded two shots, both on-goal. The Panthers also took six corner kicks while the Scotties had none.
Junior Richelle Byrd started in goal for BSC and got the win, recording one save in 57 minutes. Freshman Katie Williams came in for the next 28 minutes and also recorded a save, and sophomore Sydney Westrick played the final four minutes.
Ashley Watts played all 90 minutes in goal for Agnes Scott, recording eight saves.
The Panthers are on the road for their next five games, beginning with a date against Emory University this Friday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. ET in Atlanta. BSC returns home on Wednesday, Oct. 10, to take on LaGrange College at 5 p.m.
