ATHENS, W. Va. – Concord University exploded for four goals in the final 19 minutes to earn a 4-0 non-conference women's soccer victory over visiting Felician University on Sunday afternoon at Anderson Field.

Junior defender Delaney Crumblish (Clermont, Fla.) scored twice for the Mountain Lions (2-0).

Concord seized the better of play early in the first half, getting off four shots in an eight-minute stretch. Two were saved by Felician sophomore goalkeeper Jamie Kazenmeyer (Forked River, N.J.) and another hit a goalpost. The Mountain Lions ended the first half with an 8-0 shot advantage but the sides remained scoreless.

The Golden Falcons, while generating few opportunities of their own, withstood the pressure from the hosts until the 72nd minute. With 18:41 to play in regulation time, Crumblish finished a three-shot flurry by Concord with an unassisted tally.

The Mountain Lions took control by scoring again about 4 ½ minutes later, and Crumblish found the back of the net again with 9:15 left. Concord converted on a corner kick chance with three minutes to go for the final margin.

The hosts piled up edges of 23-0 in shots and 6-1 in corners. Kazenmayer allowed two goals and made 10 saves in 80 minutes. Sophomore Yasmin Mobley (Hatfield, England) topped Concord with five shots.

Felician opens its Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference season on Sept. 8 in Wilmington, Del., with a 1 p.m. match at Goldey-Beacom College.
