The Hurricanes won their third game in a row by scoring a season-high five goals in a 5-1 rout over North Florida at Cobb Stadium Sunday afternoon.

Miami (3-4) jumped out to an early lead on a penalty kick goal by senior forward Amy Schmidt in the 16th minute. The Ospreys tripped freshman midfielder Ainsly Wolfinbarger in the box to give the Canes a shot from the penalty mark.

Less than a minute later, Schmidt found junior Gracie Lachowecki by the net and the forward knocked it past goalkeeper Victoria Ekeli to put Miami up 2-0.

Sophomore Grace Rapp decided to take on the Ospreys by herself in the 30th minute and cut through the North Florida defense to put the Hurricanes up 3-0 in the first half.

“I said before the game that what we struggled with in the past is having intensity from the first few minutes,” Head Coach Mary-Frances Monroe said to HurricaneSports.com. “So that was our goal, to just come out and fight, be intense, to have energy and high pressure. That’s what they did.”

Miami broke through again in the 67th minute to take a commanding 4-0 lead on senior forward Jasmine Paterson’s first goal of the season.

The Ospreys (1-6) responded quickly with a penalty kick goal of their own in the 68th minute. Senior midfielder Lanie Keating put North Florida on the board with the only shot of the day to get by redshirt freshman goalkeeper Phallon Tullis-Joyce.

Rapp wrapped up the game with her second goal three minutes later off a rebound to put Miami ahead 5-1. The Canes last scored five goals back on Sept. 6, 2013, in a 6-1 win over Cleveland State at Cobb Stadium.

The Canes open up ACC play with a match against Wake Forest at 7 p.m. Friday in Winstom-Salem, North Carolina.
