LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's women's soccer team celebrated senior day on Saturday afternoon at Tylus Field with a commanding 4-0 shutout of Bryn Mawr.

A slew of early opportunities gave way in the 20th minute when Hucek took a cross from Leoni and landed a shot into the bottom right of the net for the 1-0 edge. The goal was a monumental one for the senior as the tally was the first of Hucek's career.

The Diplomats rounded out the scoring by making it 4-0 in the 50th minute when Runko dropped off a pass to Lauren Kranis who launched a long-range shot on net that made its way past the Owls' goalkeeper.

Gabby Panayotakis (5-8-1) earned the win in net with her fifth shutout of the season while the Owls' Leah Baer (0-11) was charged with the loss despite an eight-save performance.
