Bussard scored both of her goals in the first half.

The Catamounts also received goals from Samantha Sines and Kezia Butcher, and an assist from Whitney Ogle. Butcher also had an assist.

Potomac State used two goals — Brooke Snyder and Kristen Brinkley — with each getting one save.

The Cats finished with a 20-4 advantage in shots and a 4-0 edge in corner kicks.

Sprouse, now in his 14th season at PSC, earned the 100th win of his career during the the Cats’ fourth of the season. He is the winningest soccer coach in the history of Potomac State.

"We seemed a little sluggish at first, but eventually we played good soccer, " said Coach Sprouse. "This PSU Beaver team was the best we've ever played, so that says something about us too. A very gratifying 100th win, I'm thankful to God, all the players I've coached, my mentor Nelson MacAvoy and my assistant coaches over the last 14 years, especially the current one, Donnie Amman."

The Catamounts play again today at 5 p.m. when they travel to Catonsville.
