McNulty Nets First Career Goal, Mustangs Blank DeSales 2-0

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - For the third consecutive game, senior Lauren Spivey found the back of the net as the Stevenson women's soccer team posted a 2-0 non-conference victory over DeSales Saturday afternoon.

All five wins for the Mustangs (5-3) have been shutout victories as senior Tiffany McKee recorded her 20th career shutout.

The visitors did not record its first shot until the 19th minute when a shot by Spivey was saved by Haley Jacobs. It was Stevenson's only shot until freshman Shannon McNulty knocked in a loose ball in front of the net with 30 seconds remaining in the opening half.

McNulty is the seventh player to record a goal this season and fourth rookie.

Both team recorded just two shots in the opening half with the Bulldogs (4-4) two shots sailing high.

In the 67th minute, DeSales was awarded a penalty kick, which was saved by McKee. It is the first regulation penalty kick McKee has saved in her career after saving two penalty kicks in the shootout of the 2014 MAC Commonwealth championship game.

The Mustangs doubled their lead in the 73rd as Spivey netted her third goal of the season, sharing the team lead with sophomore Marissa Inglisa.

The teams combined for just 12 shots in the game, with the Mustangs holding an 8-4 edge.

McKee finished with four saves and is one shutout shy of the solo shutout record and four wins shy of the wins record.

Stevenson returns to action on Wednesday, September 27 when the Mustangs travel to No. 11 Johns Hopkins for a non-conference contest beginning at 7:00 p.m.
