Hokies cruise past UMBC in first round of NCAA tournament

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech outshot the UMBC Retrievers 20-1 en route to a 2-0 victory in the first round of the NCAA tournament at Thompson Field on Friday night.

Junior Shannon Mayrose scored the first goal for Tech in the 40th minute. Senior Taylor Antolino sent in a cross to a streaking Mayrose who headed it in for the go-ahead goal to put the Hokies up 1-0.

The Hokies’ second goal came courtesy of senior Ashley Manning in the 61st minute. Junior Danielle King played a slip ball to Manning who shot the ball past the UMBC keeper to put Tech up 2-0.

Senior goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts earned the shutout and was not forced to make a save in the contest.

The Hokies will play host again at Thompson Field next Friday to take on the winner of the Rutgers/West Virginia match.
