Haley Thatcher added another GC goal just three minutes later when she finished a pass from Kelsey Panzau across the box. In the 29th minute, Sara Palombo scored to bring Greenville up 3-0 at halftime.

In the second half, the Panthers added two more goals. Thatcher found the back of the net once again with an assist from Kelsey Panzau and Kency Lopez. The last goal of the match was scored by Panzau in the 77th minute and it brought the home team up 5-0. 

Senior goalkeeper, Heidi Koehl, was credited with the win and the shutout.

The Homecoming win brings the Lady Panthers' record to 5-9 (4-1 SLIAC). The women's next match will be played on Wednesday, October 23, when they travel to Blackburn College to take on the Beavers.
