With a pair of second half goals, Walsh remained unbeaten on the young season with a 2-0 defeat of rival Malone. The Cavaliers improved to 2-0 overall while the Pioneers fell to 1-2.
Play was at an impasse until Erin Peskura (Fr., 5-4, Strongsville, OH/HS) scored the first and deciding goal on a cross from Gina Pinzone (Sr., 5-6, Cleveland, OH/Padua Franciscan) in the 59th minute. Jessie Gearhart (Fr., 5-9, Wadsworth, OH/HS) finished the afternoon off with the second goal, her second of the year, on an assist from Carley Adams (Sr., 5-8, Louisville, OH/HS) with only a second remaining on the clock.
It was another shutout by committee for the Cavaliers’ goalkeepers as Taylor Stano (Fr., 5-7, Massillon, OH/Jackson) and Michaella Stucky (Fr., 5-5, Medina, OH/Highland) each guarded the net for a half. Stucky made one save in the first half and Stano finished the game with three saves in the second half.
