CANTON, Ohio – An early first half goal was all the Ohio Dominican women's soccer team needed, as the Panthers went on to shutout Malone 3-0 Sunday afternoon.

Six minutes into the first half, junior Jordan Mazzi (Galena, Ohio) notched her sixth goal of the season with help from junior Broegan Sautter (Bellville, Ohio) and sophomore Lauren Pratt (West Chester, Ohio). Mazzi took a cross and finished the play to the open net for the score.
At the 19:22 mark, Pratt netted her sixth goal of the season, this time, with help from Mazzi and senior Megan Augusta (Lyndhurst, Ohio). The play was almost identical to the previous goal with Pratt taking a cross and hitting home the goal into an open net.
