HOW IT HAPPENED:
- The NSU offense produced plenty of scoring chances in the early going, yet was forced to wait until the 26:55 mark to get on the board when Mackenzie Ramey found the back of the net off a corner kick attempt by Louise Matsgard.
- From there, the flood gates began to open. Just 4:09 later, it was Sydni Bostick’s turn, hammering in a pass from Brianna Paige, before Paige added a goal of her own down the stretch of the first half to send the Sharks into the break comfortably ahead 3-0.
- Dani Correa became the first NSU player to reach multiple goals on the season after tacking on in the 51st minute.
- Lexy Santiago recorded her first career goal in the 66th minute.
- The Sharks needed less than four minutes to cash in once again, as Olivia Graham joined in on the fun in the 69th minute.
- Alyssa Schepker also registered the first goal of her young career, capping the NSU scoring in the 88th minute.
BEYOND THE BOXSCORE:
- The Sharks’ seven goals are the most in a single game since they racked up 15 the last time they met the Lions back on Sept. 7, 2019.
- NSU scored seven times Monday after netting a combined four goals in its first three matches combined.
STATS OF THE NIGHT:
- The Sharks tallied 37 shots and nine corners in the effort, while preventing FMU from earning one in either statistical category.
- Paige and Lily Truong each collected two assists apiece in the win.
NSU will hit the road for the first time in 2021 when its heads to Barry for a non-conference clash with the Buccaneers this Wednesday at 6 p.m. For complete coverage of the action, visit the schedule page on NSUSharks.com or follow the Sharks on Instagram and Twitter at @NSU_WSoccer.
