WASHINGTON, D.C. - Freshman Chloe Hunnable and midfielder Alicia Angelini each scored a pair of goals and Kim Krzyk and Allison Angulo combined for seven assists as the No. 4 University of Connecticut field hockey team defeated Georgetown, 10-0, on Friday afternoon in our nation's capital. With the win, the Huskies improve to 11-1 on the season and 4-0 in BIG EAST play. The Hoyas slip to 2-10, 0-3.
The 10 goals were one shy of a UConn record. The 1997 team scored 11 goals three times during the season. UConn hadn't scored 10 goals in a game since September 1, 1998, a 10-0 trouncing of Quinnipiac.
The Huskies dominated all facets of the contest on Friday, out-shooting the Hoyas 22-3, including 18-2 in shots on goal. Connecticut also held a 10-1 advantage in penalty corners.
Sophomore goaltender Sarah Mansfield stopped two shots and recorded her sixth shutout of the season. Mansfield improved to 27-7 in her two-year career at Connecticut. Briana Pereira and Kelly Mosser combined to make eight saves for Georgetown.
Senior back Jestine Angelini got the scoring started for the Huskies just two-minutes into the contest. Connecticut was awarded a penalty corner and Angelini took advantage by netting her seventh goal of the season from the top of the circle thanks to assists from Allison Angulo and Kim Krzyk.
Freshman forward Chloe Hunnable broke the game open with a pair of scores and the Huskies seized a commanding 3-0 lead at the 13:37 mark. Hunnable's first goal came off a penalty corner, which was assisted by Jestine Angelini and Kryzk. Her second goal of the game came when she got ahead of the Georgetown defense and took a feed from sophomore Marie Elena Bolles and struck a shot past Briana Pereira and into the back of the net.
The goals were Hunnable's 10th and 11th of the season.
Bolles followed with her seventh goal of the season at 20:08 and Erin Koonz put an exclamation mark at the end of the first half with the first goal of her career with only 27-seconds remaining in the first stanza.
Six of the Huskies 10 goals came off penalty corners including Rayell Heistand's third goal of the season three-minutes into the second half.
Sophomore Lindsay Kissinger scored the first goal of her career at the 58:30 mark after a scrum in front of the net, which was preceded by Anne Jeute's fourth goal of the season. Alicia Angelini netted back-to-back goals in the game's final seven minutes, both coming off penalty corners.
Connecticut is back in action on Sunday, October 9 when the team travels to Princeton, N.J. to take on Virginia. Game time is set for 11 a.m.
