Boiling Springs, N.C. - Gardner-Webb used three goals from Dawn Rollyson and stellar defense throughout to win 3-1 over visiting Jacksonville St. in GWU's opener at the Under Armour Border Classic.

Rollyson first scored in the 19th minute to put the Runnin' Bulldogs on top 1-0. The senior from Westerville, Ohio played an assist from Megan Loftin, and struck the ball past the Gamecocks' keeper on the right side of the goal.

The game was soon tied 1-1, as Jacksonville State (0-7) scored on a GWU own goal in the 40th minute after a miscommunication between the backline defense and the keeper.

Rollyson scored her second goal of the match just after halftime, taking a long assist from Tina Frost and striking it into the back of the net to break the 1-1 tie.

Rollyson completed the hat trick off a Megan Curan assist in the 63rd minute, taking a shot from off-center and scoring across the keeper to give the host Runnin' Bulldogs a 3-1 advantage.

Dawn Rollyon's hat trick gives her a team-high five goals on the year and marks her second multi-goal game in the 2011 season.

The Gardner-Webb defense was solid throughout, giving up only 7 JSU shots and providing the Runnin' Bulldog offense the opportunity to take 14 shots, including 7 on goal.

GWU keeper Erika Lenns gets the win for the Runnin' Buldogs, posting 2 saves in 90 minutes and improving her season record to 2-1-2.

Gardner-Webb (2-1-2) will return to the field Sunday, Sep. 11 at 2:00 p.m. to host A-Sun foe Stetson in what will be the final game of the 2011 Under Armour Border Classic.
