Sept. 24, 2011
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Freshman Chloe Hunnable (Chelmsford, England) led UConn women's field hockey to a 4-0 shutout over Providence (2-7) on Saturday afternoon to improve the No. 4 Huskies record to 7-1 and 2-0 in the BIG EAST.
The Huskies didn't hesitate to jumpstart their offense with sophomore forward Anne Jeute (Meerbusch, Germany) recording UConn's first goal of the day just 3:13 minutes into the game. The 1-0 lead came when Jeute picked up a loose ball off of a pass in the middle of the circle and drilled the ball into the net.
Jeute was assisted by sophomore Marie Elena Bolles (Phoenixville, Pa.) who would conclude the afternoon with three assists.
Hunnable would dominate the field the rest of the game as she went on to record a new career high scoring three goals for the Huskies. She now leads UConn in points (16) and goals (7).
Hunnable's first goal came at 15:39 on a direct shot off the corner with Bolles and freshman Chrissy Davidson (West Lawn, Pa.) notching the assist.
Holding a 2-0 advantage, the Huskies, who outshot the Friars 15-7, continued to pressure the Friars with Hunnable recording her second goal of the day at 34:09 on a tip in from the right post on a pass from Bolles.
Hunnable would set the final score at 4-0 at the 45:36 mark with a shot from the right side of the circle with senior Jestine Angelini (Boiling Springs, Pa.) tallying the assist.
Sophomore keeper Sarah Mansfield (Cornwall, England) earned her fourth shutout of the season as she finished the game with four saves and no allowed goals.
The Huskies are back in action on Wednesday, September 28, when the team welcomes UMass to Storrs. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex.
