Vincent Adds Four Goals in Victory
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- Senior midfielder Emily Hubley (West Chester, Pa./Bayard Rustin) became the sixth player in Washington College women's lacrosse history to reach 200 career points as the Shorewomen defeated host Mary Washington, 12-9, in a non-conference game this afternoon in Fredericksburg, Va. The Shorewomen improved to 4-2 with the win, while the Eagles dropped to 6-3 with the loss.
The Shorewomen got off to a quick start in the game as Hubley scored just 46 seconds into the game. Sophomore attacker Katherine Vincent (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) then followed with back-to-back goals with 28:36 and 23:01 remaining in the first half, respectively. Hubley followed with another goal, this one off an assist from sophomore midfielder Alli Dudley (New Windsor, Md./Francis Scott Key) with 21:59 left in the period, to record her 200th career point.
Kate Smucker then put the Eagles on the board with a goal with 19:49 showing. Molly Hudson trimmed the margin to 4-2 with a goal at 15:41 for Mary Washington, but freshman midfielder Autumn Spence (Springfield, Pa./Springfield) scored her first career goal for the Shorewomen at 7:08 and Vincent tallied her third goal of the half, on a free position, with 5:00 to go before the intermission as the lead grew back to four. The Eagles clipped the margin to 6-3 with just three seconds to go in the half when Emily Mott found Corinne Wiederkehr for a goal.
Senior attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, Pa./Penn Manor) opened the second-half scoring with a goal with 24:05 left, pushing Washington's lead to 7-3. Mary Washington countered with a free-position goal by Sabrina Elliott with 22:04 to play in the game and another by Smuck at 20:24 to trim the margin to two goals at 7-5, but senior defender Liz Godorov (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill West) scored a free-position goal for the Shorewomen just 20 seconds later and Dudley found Lovett for a goal at 19:09 to extend the Washington lead to 9-5.
Smucker chalked up a free-position goal for the Eagles with 18:26 on the clock, and Elliott found the back of the net with 14:44 to play as Mary Washington again knocked the lead down to two goals at 9-7. They finally got back to within a goal at 13:54 when Wiederkehr assisted on a Smucker goal to make it 9-8 and then tied things up when Mott assisted on a goal by Ashlyn Dacey at 9:36, leveling the score at 9-9.
Vincent put the Shorewomen back in front, 10-9, with her fourth goal of the contest with 8:27 left. Dudley made it a two-goal lead, 11-9, with a tally with 4:26 to go. Godorov added an insurance goal for the Shorewomen with 1:38 left to provide the final margin.
Hubley's two goals in the game gave her 160 for her career to go along with 40 assists for 200 total points. She also added four ground balls, four draw controls, and three caused turnovers in the game. Lovett (two goals), Godorov (two goals), and Dudley (goal, two assists) joined Hubley and Vincent as multiple-point getters in the game for Washington. Sophomore goalie Haylee Solomon (Wantagh, N.Y./Sanford H. Calhoun) made eight saves for the Shorewomen.
Smucker's four goals matched Vincent for game-high honors. Elliott added two goals and four draw controls, while Wiederkehr tallied a goal and an assist and Mott finished with two assists. Taylor Paige made nine saves for Mary Washington.
The Shorewomen held a 25-19 advantage in shots in the game.
The Shorewomen are back in action Saturday with their Centennial Conference opener, a 1:00 p.m. home game against top-ranked Franklin & Marshall.
