Phillips scored three goals on just three shots to pace Johns Hopkins to a 2-0 week and to help clinch the number three seed in the Centennial Conference Tournament. She scored the game's first goal in a 4-1 win at McDaniel on Wednesday. Phillips then scored the game-winning goal in the first half against Gettysburg.
