Third-Straight Shutout for Field Hockey
October 8, 2008
WASHINGTON- The defense was solid, but this time the offense unleashed a strong attack, as the Cardinals outshot Goucher 21-6, and scored twice in the first half.
Marian Cassilly (Gambrills, Md./Archbishop Spalding) needed only three saves to earn her third-straight shutout, as the Cardinals held Goucher to only six shots for the game, and only one in the second half.
Tracey Scanlon (North Wales, Pa./Gwynedd Mercy) found the net early and often, scoring two goals in the first 15 minutes of play. Her first goal was assisted by Liz McCormick (Broomhall, Pa./Country Day Sacred Heart) before McCormick added her own tally in the second half.
Meredith Chandler (Tiburon, Calif./St. Ignatius) and Ro Dixon (Ardmore, Pa./Country Day Sacred Heart) both added goals late in the second half.
CUA is now 6-4 overall and 2-0 in the Landmark. The Cardinals will return to action Saturday on the road at Scranton before returning to Cardinal Stadium, Sunday for a 1 p.m. game against York (Pa.) College.
