MOUNT OLIVE -- Mount Olive goalkeeper Jenn Sastre recorded a career-high 10 saves, but Tusculum prevailed 5-0 and snapped the Trojans' seven-match unbeaten streak on Sunday afternoon.

Danielle Tanner and Jere Whitbread scored two goals apiece for Tusculum, while Courtney Tanner added a goal and an assist.

Sastre recorded nine saves in the first half, including a kick save on an eight-yard shot attempt as Mount Olive (7-7-3) stayed within a goal through the first 23 minutes. Tusculum (11-5-0) broke the game open with two goals in a span of just under five minutes.

Mount Olive pressured early in the second half and had a scoring opportunity in the second minute after intermission on a cross by Kate Painter. But a Tusculum defender was able to clear the ball out before the Trojans could take a shot.

Amanda Huber played the final 35 minutes in goal for the Trojans and finished with four saves. Tusculum outshot Mount Olive 26-3.

The Trojans conclude regular-season play this week with a pair of Conference Carolinas road games. They visit Barton College on Wednesday and head to Limestone (S.C.) on Saturday. The Trojans need one win to advance to the season-ending conference tournament.
