Men’s Soccer Ends on Two-Game Winstreak
The Shoremen ended their season on a positive note with two straight 2-1 wins over Centennial Conference opponents Swarthmore and Johns Hopkins. Senior Joseph Fili provided the game-tying goal against the Garnets and the game-winning goal against the Blue Jays.
Just like the previous season, the Shoremen came back from a one-goal-deficit against the Blue Jays to score two second half goals. It was the first back-to-back wins over Johns Hopkins for the Shoremen in over 37 years.
The team finished a game outside of the playoff window and tied for eighth place with McDaniel and Gettysburg and looks to bounce back next season despite losing 11 seniors from the roster.
Field Hockey Falls in First Round of CC Playoffs
The season ended in a dramatic and unforunate way for the Shorewomen as they lost 2-3 to Johns Hopkins in the opening round of the Centennial Conference playoffs.
Going into the second half up by two goals, the Blue Jay’s scored three goals in a 15 minute span with the last one coming with three minutes left to take the lead. It would be too little too late for the Shorewomen as they bowed out of the competition with their second loss to Johns Hopkins of the season.
Sophomore Elizabeth Davis and junior Jordan Mitchell were named All-Centennial Conference players while the team reached the playoffs for the fourth time in just five years. They also won 13 games for the first time in 13 years and finished with their highest win percentage since 1998.
Women’s Soccer Thrives In Their Home Matches
Home-field advantage was vital to women’s soccer this season as they finished 3-4-2 at home while going winless at 0-7-1 away. Their away woes never went away during the season as the Shorewomen finished with only one goal in their eight away games.
A bright spot for the Shorewomen was sophomore goalkeeper Melissa Berry who broke the career shutout record this season with two to spare.
Goal-scoring was also an issue for the team throughout the season as they only managed to score a single goal throughout Centennial Conference play. With a year of experience now under her belt, freshman Emani Silva looks to lead scoring in her sophomore year as well after totaling three this year.

When conference wins started falling their way, it was too late into the season for the Shorewomen to reach the playoffs.
After winning three of their final four Centennial Conference games, the Shorewomen finished three games out of the fifth and final playoff spot.
Their home-finale almost ended in a stunning upset as the Shorewomen fell to first place Haverford in three sets, losing the final set by two points.
Juniors Kristin Lee and Jess Daunoras led the team in kills per set while freshman Taylor Horan led the team in assists.
After only graduating one player from this season, the Shorewomen are hoping their potential can be reached next season and so they can achieve a playoff spot.
