ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. - Wesley College's Jade Martin (Cape May, N.J./Lower Cape May Regional) became just the second player in school history to score 100 career goals, but No. 18 St. Mary's was too much for the Wolverines, claiming a 24-5 win.
Martin reached the milestone with 27:06 left in the first half to give Wesley (0-2, 0-2 CAC) a 2-0 lead. The Seahawks (1-1, 1-0 CAC), however, scored nine consecutive goals to take command of the game over the next 17:24. Martin stopped the run with another tally with 9:42 left in the half, but St. Mary's closed the half with a 6-0 run to lead 15-3 at the half.
The Woverines received second half goals from Stephanie Bailey (Kensington, Md./Walter Johnson) and Katelyn Randes (Odenton, Md/Arundel), but Wesley could not close the gap as the Seahawks scored nine more goals in the final 30 minutes.
Martin, who also added an assist in the contest, ended the game with 101 career goals and joined Laura MacDougall in Wesley's 100-goal club. MacDougall scored a school record 145 goals from 2000-03.
