Futbol women win by a touchdown; some football stuff

FIU's lone senior, goalkeeper Kaitlyn Savage, got a near-perfect sendoff -- a field view of a dominating performance that left her only having to stop three shots on goal. And Savage really didn't have to do even that in the 7-0 FIU win against Arkansas-Little Rock Sunday afternoon. She could've played goal standing on her head and FIU still would've won by a massive blowout.

The bombing didn't take five minutes to start.


Sophomore Scarlett Montoya struck 2:51 into the game. Madlen Weinhardt, who also had two assists, and Chelsea Leiva, the latter tying Montoya for the team goals lead, followed in the first 8:29. By halftime, Montoya took the goals lead back, Ashleigh Shim and Nicole DiPerna got in on the fun and FIU had a 6-0 lead. Morgan Morris scored in the second half off an assist from Shim.

FIU, 10-5-2, 7-1-1 in the Sun Belt, finish the regular season Thursday at FAU.


Sophomore defensive end Denzell Perine will redshirt to finish rehabilitating a knee. Defensive tackle Isame Faciane, who twice had to be helped off the field Saturday at Troy with what appeared to be a right shoulder problem, is being checked out today.

Get well Isame.... Rest up and heal. Next season will be better with Fadol and Darrian getting lots of reps you'll have more help.

Lets move forward Panthers!
