LIVONIA, Mich. – The Madonna University women's soccer team recorded its third consecutive clean sheet and have outscored their opponents 15-0 in those contests which includes a 5-0 win over Point Park University at the Madonna Athletics Complex on Monday afternoon. Nicolette Vultaggio (SO/Chesterfield, Mich.) led the offensive charge as she became the third player in program history to score four times in a contest, one shy of the program record.

FINAL: Madonna (4-0-1) 5, Point Park (0-3-0) 0

  • Julia Henning (JR/Shelby Township, Mich.) netted her fifth goal of the season in the 14th minute as she was able to corral touch pass from Emma Camp (SO/Canton, Mich.) inside the 18 and beat the keeper in the lower 90 of the near post for a 1-0 lead

  • Madonna didn't have to wait long for another tally as Nicolette Vultaggio intercepted a Pioneers pass in their defensive third of the field and then beat the keeper one-v-one for her fifth tally of 2017

  • It was the Vultaggio show in the second half as the talented sophomore for the Blue and Gold converted all three of her second half shots for the 5-0 win

  • The Crusaders third goal came in the 65th minute as Vultaggio dribbled through the defense, cut to the middle of the box and beat the keeper to the short side of the goal for her second tally of the match

  • She recorded a hat trick in the 82nd minute as she again intercepted a Pioneers pass in their defensive third then dribbled around the keeper before planting the ball in the back of the net for number seven of the season

  • The final tally came just two minutes later as Vultaggio showed off her impressive foot skills with the ball as she beat two defenders then delivered the ball to the far side lower 90 for her fourth in the contest

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE

  • The Crusaders outshot the Pioneers 26-3 in the contest with 17 shots on goal to just two for the visitors

  • Vultaggio paced the offense with six shots, all on goal as she converted four of them for goals

  • Emma Camp added four shots with two on frame while Brianna Mozariwskyj (SO/Shelby Township, Mich.) attempted three shots with one on goal

  • Julia Stewart (JR/St. Clair Shores, Mich.) stopped the only two shots she faced and had not allowed a goal in three straight contests

  • Madonna had the only two corner kicks in the contest

PATTON'S PARLOR

  • "Nicolette had a great game tonight, but I thought at times we didn't really play our best. I think the heat and humidity had something to do with that, but it's great that we can get a good win even when we don't play our best. Hopefully we come out with a little more intensity on Wednesday at Cleary."

  • "The back line has been great and Olivia Kitz (SO/Livonia, Mich.) and Allie May (SR/Brownstown, Mich.) in the middle have been super strong. We've got six really good defenders that have played quality minutes and we've done a tremendous job allowing just two goals through five games this season.

UP NEXT

  • The Blue and Gold return to action on Wednesday, Sept. 13 as they travel to Howell, Michigan to face Cleary University at 4 p.m.
