Worcester, Mass. – Visiting MIT scored three first half goals enroute to a 5-0 win over Clark University in New England Women's And Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) field hockey action on Saturday afternoon.
Score: MIT 5, Clark University 0
Records: Clark University 5-8 (0-4 NEWMAC); MIT 9-2 (4-0 NEWMAC)
Location: Granger Turf Field, Worcester, Mass.
How It Happened:
Bailey Tregoning (Frederick, Md.) scored a pair of goals and Emily Penn (Columbia, Md.) added a goal and an assist as the Engineers pushed past the host Cougars.
Tregoning got MIT on the board just 2:27 into the contest when she hammered home her fifth tally of the season.
The Engineers then doubled their lead when Penn setup Devon Goetz (Rockville, Md.) in the 15th minute.
MIT wrapped up the scoring in the opening 35 minutes when Krishna Jaitly (Bethesda, Md.) sent a pass across the goal mouth to Anna Neuman (Abington, Md.) for her first marker of the year.
Once the second half got underway, the visitors wasted little time denting the scoreboard again as Penn fired home an unassisted strike for her 14th of the season at 36:33.
Tregoning ended the scoring on the afternoon when she took a feed from Goetz and rattled the back of the cage in the 43rd minute.
Inside The Numbers:
MIT controlled play for long stretches of the contest and they finished with a 23-0 edge in shots and an 18-1 advantage in penalty corners.
Dani Michaud (Providence, R.I.) recorded six saves in goal for the Cougars, while Cailey Talbot (Southampton, N.J.) didn't need to make a stop to collect her fourth shutout of the season.
The win for the Engineers is their fifth straight over the Cougars dating back to the 2011 season and have now tied the all-time series which started in 1977 at 23-23-1.
