Greensboro, NC - After falling in their ODAC debut, Hollins traveled out of state to face their conference rivals from Guilford. Both teams came into the matchup looking to get into the ODAC win column after opening conference play last weekend.
The home standing Quakers struck quickly, netting the game's first goal less than four minutes after the opening kick. Hollins tightened up on the defensive end and played Guiflord even for the next 15 minutes of play. Guiflord once again took advantage of a good scoring chance when they were afforded a breakaway after a deflection and added to their lead. At the midway point of the first half, a pair of Quaker scores pushed the advantage to 4-0.
Hollins had a great scoring chance as the first half started to come to a close. Kally Saffer (Winston-Salem, NC) won a 50/50 ball at midfield and started to dribble down the right side. After weaving past three Guilford defenders, Saffer blasted a shot over the goalkeeper's head. However, the shot missed its' mark and sailed just wide of the net.
Trailing, 0-5, coming out of the break, the Quakers added multiple goals in the opening minutes. Hollins had another golden scoring chance late in the game when first-year Valerie Helmbrecht (Charlottesville, VA) got free right in front of the Quaker goal. Helmbrecht blasted a shot towards the goal but the Quaker keeper was up to the task, securing the save.
Saffer once again lead Hollins in shots while goalkeeper Audrey Haisley (Ashburn, VA) went the distance in goal, recording 12 saves on 37 Guilford shots.
Kelli Uresti netted a hat trick and handed out two assists in leading the Guilford attack. Cassie Vaughn and Juliana Evans-Anform added two goals apiece.
Hollins will play host to one of the ODAC's best this Saturday when they welcome Bridgewater College to campus for a 2:00pm start.
