Greenville, N.C. -
Pirate forward Melissa Penney scored a pair of goals Sunday afternoon as East Carolina notched a 2-0 decision over instate foe Western Carolina at Bunting Field.
The Pirates (1-3-0) held the upper hand from the outset recording eight shots in the first half, while allowing none. With less than 10 minutes left in the first half, Penney scored what proved to be the game-winner on a corner kick.
In the 77th minute of play, Penney netted her second goal of the day when fellow senior Meghan McCallion served a cross pass and Penney dove to head the ball into the net.
ECU's defensive unit held the Catamounts (3-1-0) to only three shots total and just one shot on goal in the second half, coming from senior Megan Chambers. Western's keeper Alesha Row registered five saves on ECU's 14 shots.
Western Carolina will return to action on Friday, Sept. 9, hosting Longwood. Match time is set for 6:00 pm at the new Catamount Athletic Complex.
