The field hockey team extended its winning-streak to six, crushing William Paterson University 8-0 at home on Saturday, Oct. 6.
The Lions now move on to owning an overall record of 9-1, and an undefeated record of 2-0 in the New Jersey Athletic Conference.
With just five minutes into the game, senior forward/midfielder Caroline Quinn scored the first goal of the game, which boosted the team’s momentum.
Shortly after the first goal, the Lions went on a five-goal run and took a 6-0 lead going into halftime. Goals were accomplished by junior forward Jordan Allegretto, sophomore forward Tori Tiefenthaler and junior forward Tori Hannah. Both Tiefenthaler and Hannah finished the first half with a pair of goals.
During the second half, all of the action was on William Paterson’s side. The Lions were hungry and eager to keep sending shots to their opponent’s goalkeeper.
The College outshot William Paterson by 37 shots, while the opponent only had two shots the entire game.
In the final 10 minutes of the game, junior forward Cayla Andrews scored off of her own rebound, collecting her ninth goal of the season. Moments later, junior forward Iris Schuck received a pass from Quinn and made her way to the arc with ease and fired a shot that the opponent’s goalkeeper did not see coming.
Junior goalkeeper Maddie Beaumont denied the single shot on goal attempted by William Paterson. This contest marked Beaumont’s fourth straight shutout of the season.
The team improved its record and completed its sixth shutout in 2018.
This weekend, the team will host NJAC opponent Montclair State University on Saturday, Oct. 13 for a 1 p.m. match.
