Howarth takes over all-time scoring mark with 3-goal performance

Kate Howarth

Over her five seasons with the New England Mutiny (6-3), forward Kate Howarth has evolved from an enigmatic presence in attack to a stalwart for the team on and off the pitch as team captain. In Sunday’s 4-0 win over the New York Magic (0-7-1), Howarth’s three-goal performance put her over the top on the Mutiny’s all-time scoring charts and also kept her team in the hunt for a spot in the East Final (July 18). The top two teams in the conference will battle it out for the automatic berth into the United Women’s Soccer National Championship (July 21-22).

It only took three minutes for Howarth to tie former New England star and current University of Miami Head Coach Mary-Frances Monroe (36 goals, 21 assists, 93 points) at the top of the team’s scoring mark. The former Hurricane tallied the eventual game-winning goal off an assist from forward Abby Sotomayor - her fifth helper of the season which is now tied for tops in the national pro-am league. In the 20th minute, Howarth took the all-time scoring mark for herself, breaking in on the New York goal and slotting her shot past keeper Sierra Bonham for the 2-0 lead.

Three minutes later, defender Brittany Champagne went coast-to-coast on her run and notched her first goal of the season for the 3-0 score. In the 56th minute, midfielder Sharlotte Pernice sent in Howarth on a breakaway for the final tally in the 4-0 victory. The three goals for Howarth not only put her on the top of the Mutiny scoring charts (42 goals, 13 assists, 97 points) but her 10 goals scored this season is now tied for tops in all of UWS. New England has one more regular season game and a win over the Western New York Flash next Sunday, July 9th at home will put them in position for a berth in the East Final - but they will need help.
