MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The No. 13 Auburn Montgomery women's soccer team had no issues with Brewton-Parker, scoring five goals in the first nine minutes en route to a 13-0 victory.
Maria Ros Arngrimsdottir had a hat trick, picking up nine points overall, while Margret Albertsdottir added two goals and three assists. AUM outshot the Lady Barons 50-1 in the game.
"It wasn't the most difficult game for us," Head Coach Jamey Newsome said. "But I was pleased with the fact that, for the most part, we didn't drop our level. That was our challenge at halftime to the girls: to keep up our level of intensity and make sure we continued to play AUM soccer. A conference win, regardless of whether it is hard or easy, is important."
The 13 goals were the most for the Warhawks since Sept. 23, 2006 in a 14-0 win over Emmanuel.
Arngrimsdottir opened up the scoring after four minutes, taking a pass from Krista Hagen and drilling the ball into the top left corner.
After Albertsdottir picked up her first goal of the game a minute later, Arngrimsdottir struck again in the following minute. Another minute later, she picked up the hat trick, scoring her three goals in a span of three minutes and 21 seconds.
It was the first hat trick for AUM since Helga Franklinsdottir scored three against Emmanuel on Oct. 1, 2011.
"It's always fun to score," Arngrimsdottir said. "But it's even better when the rest of the team is playing well at the same time."
Eight of Arngrimsdottir's nine points were scored in the first half, setting a new team record for points in an individual half. The previous record was seven, which was achieved twice by Amber Elam in 2007 and 2008.
Kendall McCardell and Haley Williams each added a pair of goals for AUM. Williams now has four goals this season, while McCardell picked up her first goals as a Warhawk.
Melissa Ledesma, Alexandra Sveinsdottir, Eyrun Rakel Agnarsdottir and Karina Suetsugu also scored goals. Nicole Letford tallied her first three assists of 2012. Eleven players had at least one point.
Holly Clarke and Jimi Guibor combined for the team's fourth straight shutout. Clarke made the only save for AUM late in the first half.
With her two goals, Albertsdottir now leads the team with 10 this year. She also leads the team with six assists after adding three today.
AUM improves to 8-0-1 (3-0), while Brewton-Parker drops to 0-9-1 (0-3).
The Warhawks return to action tomorrow afternoon with a 1 p.m. matchup against Emmanuel College.
