Seniors Izzy Weigel and Kelsy Fitzgerald finished their Raider careers in style on Wednesday afternoon as the Shippensburg University women’s soccer team posted a triumphant 7-0 victory over Mansfield in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division matchup from David See Field.

How it Happened

Shippensburg (8-10, 6-10 PSAC East) got single-game career highs of four goals and two assists from Weigel. Fitzgerald shifted from the defensive midfield to forward for the final 13 minutes and caged a goal in the 85th minute.

Weigel’s banner day snapped a pair of long Raider streaks. No Raider had scored a hat trick (3 goals in a game) in 12 years, since Gayle Kuntzmann achieved the feat at Clarion on Oct. 26, 2007. Likewise, it’s been more than 16 years since an SU player finished with four or more goals in a game, which Weigel did on Wednesday.

Weigel finished just one shy of the single-game record for both goals and points. Karen Jennings had five goals and 11 points in a 1997 win over Juniata.

Overall for 2019, Weigel finishes with single-season career highs of 11 goals, six assists and 28 points. The 11 goals are the most in a single season by a Raider in 10 years (Kuntzmann had 11 goals in 2009). The 28 points are the most in a single season by a Raider in 11 years (Kuntzmann had 34 points in 2008). The six assists are the most in a single season by a Raider since Stephanie Allshouse had six assists in 2016.

Junior Taylor Moore also scored twice for the Raiders, while sophomore K.K. O’Donnell, freshman Alyse Caffrey and freshman Emma Oberholtzer were credited with assists in the contest.
