GREENSBORO, N.C. --  Three different Quakers scored as Guilford College opened the women's soccer season with a 3-0 win over Salem College on Wednesday night.

The Quakers (1-0) pushed the margin to 2-0 in the 76th minute. Amber Hurst made a long run on the left side and her shot beat Salem (1-1) goalie Jordan Tomberlin, who came off her line.

The final goal occurred at the 89:06 mark. Sydney Moss assisted an unmarked Sarah Hall on the far post. She finished easily for the Quakers.

Guilford had the edge in shots, 17-7. Salem had three corner kicks to the Quakers' one. Possession time was split evenly.

Goalkeepers Bri Garcia and Morgan Malikowski combined for the shutout. Garcia started and earned the win. Malikowski played the final 45 minutes and stopped two shots. Tomberlin made six saves for Salem.
