Field Hockey Blasts Conn College

Field Hockey

     Coming off of a thrilling 1-0 victory over Wheaton College on
Wednesday, the field hockey team exploded offensively for five goals
Saturday morning, cruising to a 5-0 victory over Connecticut College.

    Outshooting the Camels 13-1 in the opening half, the Jeffs quickly
took control of the match, putting together a number of scoring runs,
including four first-half shots from Sandra Accordino '99. 13 minutes in,
Tri-captains Marnie Huffman-Green '99 and Irene Permut '99 connected for
Permut's first goal of the season, staking the Jeffs out to the early 1-0
lead.

    The Jeffs continued to control the tempo from there, scoring less than
four minutes later when Tyra Gettleman '00 netted her first goal of the
season off of a Gretchen Bowe '01 pass. The Camel defense settled down
from there, keeping the Jeffs scoreless for the rest of the first half,
but Amherst freshmen goalies Catherine Deibel '02 and Beth Sensing '02,
who split the goalie duties for the game, were equally perfect in the Jeff
goal.

    In the second half, the Amherst offense took over, extending the lead
to 3-0 less than two minutes into the second frame on a goal by Heidi
Kahrl '02 off of a Kristin Osborn '01 feed. Osborn received another assist
just over eight minutes later, as she fed Huffman-Green for her second
goal of the season, extending the lead to 4-0. Head Coach Chris Paradis
went to her bench for most of the rest of the second half, and freshman
Marcy Busch '02 came up big with less than 15 minutes left, feeding Permut
for the senior's second goal of the game.

    The much needed scoring explosion for the Jeff offense finally came,
as the squad, currently ranked 15th in the nation, erupted for more goals
in one game (five) than they had tallied to this point all season (four),
which bodes well for the squad heading into next week's matches against
Mount Holyoke College and Bowdoin College.
