WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sisters Danielle Jenkin (Pompton Lakes, N.J.) and Camryn Jenkin (Pompton Lakes, N.J.) combined for three goals and transfer Bethany Olejarz (Jackson, N.J.) scored twice as Felician University earned a 9-0 non-conference women's soccer victory over host Trinity Washington University on Wednesday afternoon on the TWU campus.

The Golden Falcons and Tigers were meeting for the first time.

Felician (1-1) set a school record for shots in a game with 51, and the nine goals matched another program standard. Felician easily surpassed the previous mark for shots of 41, last reached nearly 20 years ago. The Golden Falcons scored nine times for the third occasion in their 22-year history and first since 2007.

Danielle Jenkin bookended the game's scoring, finding the back of the net with four minutes, 55 seconds gone by and with eight ticks left to play. Both markers were assisted by senior Jenna Fischetto (Wallington, N.J.). Camryn Jenkin gave the visitors a 2-0 lead with a 12th-minute score.

Felician took full control when Amy Aguilar-Almazo (Clifton, N.J.) connected with Olejarz twice in a 72-second span mid-way through the first period. Sophomore Valerie Adamo (Hicksville, N.Y.) and freshman Lindsey Riera (Belleville, N.J.) tallied 62 seconds apart late in the half as the Golden Falcons carried a 6-0 edge into halftime.

Felician received second-half scores from Katie Paz (Bethage, N.Y.) and Paloma Garcia (Union City, N.J.) before Danielle Jenkin provided the final margin. Riera, who later added an assist, and Garcia registered their first collegiate goals.

Aguilar-Almazo tied a Felician record with three assists. She is the sixth different Golden Falcon to enjoy a three-assist game.

The Golden Falcons held TWU (0-5) without a shot attempt, their first time doing so to an opponent since out-shooting Dominican (N.Y.) College, 13-0, on Oct. 7, 2015. Tiger goalkeeper Vanessa Ramirez made 20 saves.

Felician begins the season's Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference action when it travels to Wilmington (Del.) University for a noon contest on Saturday in Newark, Del.
