Junior Scores First Two Career Goals and Tallies Five Points – Both Career Bests
CHESTERTOWN, Md. – Junior defender Jordan Mitchell (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne's County) totaled career highs of two goals and five points as host Washington College topped visiting Bryn Mawr, 6-1, on Wednesday afternoon in a Centennial Conference field hockey game at the WC Upper Bermuda Field. The Shorewomen improve to 8-1 overall and 2-1 in the Centennial, while the Owls fall to 2-6 and 0-4 respectively.
The Shorewomen got onto the board 10:02 into the game when sophomore attack Jenn Miller (Westminster, Md./North Carroll) was able to grab the rebound off of a shot by sophomore midfielder Elizabeth Davis (Earleville, Md./Bohemia Manor) and put the ball into the cage from the left side of the goal mouth to put the hosts ahead for good at 1-0. The Shorewomen made it 2-0 when Mitchell deflected in a Davis shot at the 14:47 mark and for Mitchell it was her first career goal. The Shorewomen made it 3-0 at 22:21 when freshman midfielder Michaela Conners (Havertown, Pa./Archbishop Carroll) deflected into the right side of the goal a pass from Mitchell. Just 1:06 later, junior defender Emily Eline (Jarrettsville, Md./North Harford) made it a four-goal lead when she netted her first career goal when she drove down the right side and powered a shot into the right side of the cage on the shortside. Mitchell scored her second goal of the day just 92 seconds after Eline's tally when her blast from the left side of the circle went between the legs of Bryn Mawr goalkeeper Alex Weinfeld.
In the second half, freshman attack Sami Bialozynski (Eldersburg, Md./Century) put the Shorewomen ahead 6-0 as she tipped in a shot from Davis off of a penalty corner just 51 seconds into the second half. The Owls got onto the board with 14:17 remaining in the game when Ashlee Williams scored on a rebound on the left side of the goal mouth.
Davis had two assists to lead all players in the win.
Washington held a commanding 46-3 edge in shots and had 20 of the game's 21 penalty corners. In goal, junior goalkeeper Sadie Robertson (Cape May Court House, N.J./Middle Township) had two saves in the win for Washington, while Weinfeld made 21 saves for Bryn Mawr.
The Shorewomen return to action on Tuesday afternoon when they travel to Wilson for a 4:00 p.m. non-conference game in Chambersburg, Pa.
