Oct. 22, 2011
BRYN MAWR, PA - Senior Annie Shepard scored a natural hat trick to pace the Johns Hopkins field hockey team in an 8-0 win over host Bryn Mawr Saturday in Centennial Conference action. The Blue Jays win their third straight and improve to 8-7 overall and 5-3 in conference play. The Owls meanwhile, fall to 1-13 overall and 0-9 in the Centennial.
Shepard scored the game's first three goals, completing her first career hat trick before the game was 13 minutes old. Classmate Carly Bianco assisted on her opening goal at 4:57 to notch her 50th career point and become the 17th player in school history to reach the milestone. Shepard's three goals accounted for the only scoring in the first half as the Blue Jays took a 3-0 lead into the break.
Coming out the half, Hopkins scored a pair of quick goals in less than five minutes to push its lead to 5-0 at 46:04. Junior Maggie Phillips scored her team-leading 11th goal of the season off a feed from senior Ali Bahneman at 41:13. Junior Liane Tellier then scored thanks to a helper from classmate Meghan Kellett at 46:04. Sophomore Storm Kodde found the cage for the second straight game, on an assist from freshman Danielle Thompson at 56:38. Sophomore Maddie Fryer scored her first career goal with just over three minutes to play and then senior Kelly Schwarz followed with her second of the season just 49 seconds later to cap the scoring.
Junior Elizabeth Peijnenburg got the start in goal and made one save to earn her first career shutout. Her counterpart, Elizabeth Toft, made 21 stops for the Owls. Hopkins outshot Bryn Mawr, 39-1 and had 29 corners to none for the hosts. Shepard's hat trick is the second this season as Phillips had one in the season-opener versus Kean. It is the first time that two different players have had hat tricks in the same season since 2008 when Emily Miller and Andrea Vandersall turned the trick.
Hopkins returns to action on Wednesday, October 26 as the Blue Jays travel to Westminster, MD to take on McDaniel. The Centennial Conference match-up is slated for 7:00 pm.
