Roundup: Cummings scores 3 in Wesley women’s soccer victory

Aleya Cummings netted a hat trick as the Wesley College women’s soccer blanked Washington Adventist University at home on Wednesday by a final score of 4-0.

Cummings, a Caesar Rodney High graduate, would start the scoring early in the first half for the Wolverines. Five minutes into the game, Aline Check would play a through-ball past the Shock defense and Cummings would rip it past the Shock goalkeeper. Then in the 30th minute, Cummings would steal the ball away from the Shock defense off a failed clear and blast the ball into the back of the net.

Janiah Moore, another CR product, would add the third goal of the game just over a minute later as she would make a move in the box and curl the ball near post around the goalkeeper.
Two minutes into the second half, Cummings would net her third and final goal of the night from a long through-ball played in by Jaimilyn Snyder from the midfield.

Amanda Deputy and Krista Salvadore split halves and combined for four saves on the night to complete the shutout for the Wolverines.
