MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Freshman Maddy Morrison and sophomore Jade Paul combined for nine goals in Saturday's 16-8 win over USA South Athletic Conference opponent Ferrum.

The Lady Hawks (2-8, 1-1 USA South) jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first-half after a pair of goals from Morrison. Ferrum (4-4, 0-2 USA South) answered back to cut the lead to one, but a goal by Paul pushed the advantage back to two.

The Panthers scored with 9:21 remaining in the first, but Carolyn Smith found Morrison for her third goal before Victoria Krupa scored to put Huntingdon ahead 5-2.
