MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — The No. 24-ranked University of Michigan women’s soccer team scored six second-half goals in a 7-0 win over the Central Michigan Chippewas on Sunday (Sept. 4) at CMU’s Soccer Stadium.

Juniors Sammi Woods and Kacey Lawrence each notched a brace, while senior Claire Dawson tallied the first goal of her Wolverine career. Senior Lily Farkas had a goal and assist. Overall, the trio of Woods, Lawrence and Farkas had five shots apiece to account for 15 of U-M’s 24 shots. Lawrence’s two goals in the effort marked a new career high.

Michigan (4-2-0) dominated the first half, outshooting Central Michigan 12-1, but the Wolverines were only able to score once. Lawrence started the scoring off in the 39th minute, as she collected a loose ball off a corner and finished top right from 18-yards out.

The second half was a different story, as Michigan scored six goals, including four in the final 10 minutes of action. Farkas was involved early, scoring her third goal in the 55th minute, and she assisted on Lawrence’s second marker nine minutes later to run the U-M advantage to 3-0.

The score sat at 3-0 for the next 17 minutes, before Woods took over her own personal scoring run. In the 81st, she made it 4-0 off a helper from graduate student Meredith Haakenson and the first assist of Taylor Brennan’s career, and followed with an unassisted score in the 84th.

Following a Central Michigan (1-5-0) own goal, Dawson capped off the Wolverine scoring in the 89th minute off a service from Woods.
