CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Junior Kate Howarth scored a goal in each half and the University of Miami women’s soccer team shutdown the Monmouth Hawks’ offense in a 3-0 victory Sunday night at Cobb Stadium.
Howarth scored the first Hurricane goal of the season with a sliding kick from eight yards out in the 12th minute. The play started on a free kick by Ali Brennan deep in Miami’s end. Brennan’s through ball was headed down by Ashley Flinn before it was touched by Shannon Caspar onto the sliding foot of Howarth.
It proved to be all the scoring the Canes would need.
However, the forward wasn’t done. After Miami went up 2-0, Howarth scored her second goal in the 84th minute on another set piece, this time off a corner kick. Jordan Roseboro took the kick, which was corralled by Kim Hutchinson and then fed on to Howarth, who buried it into the left side of the goal.
“It was good to get the first win out of the way at home,” said Howarth. “It will give us momentum going into the week and going into practice. It will give us a little bit of confidence.” more
