FIELD HOCKEY: Anna Maria blanked by Bridgewater State

The Basics:

-Score: Bridgewater State University 3, Anna Maria College 0

-Records: Anna Maria (3-9), Bridgewater State (3-5)

-Location: Paxton, Mass. (AMCAT Field)

- The Lead: Bridgewater State University got goals from three different players Tuesday evening and defeated Anna Maria College, 3-0, in a non-conference field hockey game at AMCAT Field. The Bears stopped a five-game losing skid, improving to 3-5 on the season, while the AMCATS drop to 3-9. 

How It Happened:

-The Bears scored two goals just over a minute apart early in the first half to take a 2-0 lead. Junior Alexandra Zoebisch (Plymouth, Mass.) opened the scoring with her third goal of the season in the 10th minute, and freshman Emma Daley (Foxborough, Mass.) converted a goal from junior Mia Pelletier (New Bedford, Mass.) in the 11th minute for her third goal of the season as well.

-The home team put three shots on goal in the first half but could not get on the scoreboard.

-Junior Kathryn Jacobson (Norfolk, Mass.) tallied her first of the season just a minute and a half into the second half to give the visitors some breathing room, and that ended up as the extent of the scoring. 

Inside the Numbers

-Bridgewater State finished with a decisive advantage in shots in both halves, winding up with a 20-5 margin for the game. Freshman Chayna Bingham - Hendricks (Mashpee, Mass.) led the AMCATS with two quality shots. 

-The Bears also had more penalty corners by a 10-1 count. 

-Junior keeper Allison Chappell (Raynham, Mass.) earned the shutout for BSU, making five saves. 

-Senior Bryanna Tobin (Deep River, Conn.) made five saves in the first half for Anna Maria, and junior Danielle Huston (Spencer, Mass.) made seven stops in the second half.
