AMERICUS, Ga. -- No. 12 Flagler scored four first half goals to run past the Georgia Southwestern State University women's soccer team 4-0 in the Peach Belt Conference home opener in front of a crowd of 106 at Hurricane Field Wednesday.

Myiah Russack-Cradeur opened the scoring for the Saints in the 20th minute when she took a pass from Charlene Nowotny and put it past Lady Canes (0-6-0, 0-2-0 PBC) goalkeeper Sammie Conley. Russack-Cradeur added her second of the day and sixth on the season eight minutes later after MC Bell found her open in front of the net to give Flagler a two goal advantage.

The Saints (7-0-1, 2-0-1 PBC) added their third score just 35 seconds later on a goal from Fio Fustagno and rounded out the scoring in the 35th minute when Nowotny found the back of the net with her sixth of the season.    

Bri Reda was able to tally the lone Georgia Southwestern shot on the afternoon as the Lady Canes were outshot 28-1 by the Saints. Flagler also enjoyed a 9-1 advantage in corner kicks.  

GSW junior goalkeeper Sammie Conley made eight saves on the 12 shots on goal for the Saints, including five in the first half.
