Teng Scores Twice in Hopkins Defeat of Swarthmore
Sept. 30, 2012
BALTIMORE, MD - Sydney Teng scored two second half goals to lead the No. 17 Johns Hopkins women's soccer team past Swarthmore, 2-0, Sunday afternoon.
Senior goalkeeper Meredith Maguire made five saves en route to capturing her ninth career shutout in the effort, as the Blue Jays advanced to 7-2-1 on the season and 2-1 in the Centennial Conference.
Chances were few and far to come by for both sides in the first half. Hopkins and Swarthmore (5-3, 2-1) had equal spans of dominant possession, but neither team was able to put together the right combination to find the back of the net.
The Blue Jays came out firing in the second half, however, and wasted no time scoring as Sydney Teng found the back of the net just 42 seconds into the period. Garnet goalkeeper Reba Magier saved Teng's initial shot, but Teng put away the rebound from three yards out.
Teng then doubled Hopkins' lead, 2-0, in the 63rd minute after receiving a pass from teammate Jenny Hall. Hall played the ball to Teng at the top of the 18-yard box, who then proceeded to fire a left-footed shot past Magier.
Despite strong offensive efforts from Swarthmore, Maguire protected the Blue Jays' lead well in the second half. The netminder robbed Emma Sindelar in the 60th minute on a one-on-one, and then leaped to punch clear a fantastic Garnet shot in the 84th minute.
Magier had seven saves in net for the Garnet, while Sindelar notched a team-high five shots.
Hopkins next takes the pitch on October 3 in Lancaster, PA against conference foe Franklin & Marshall at 5:00 pm.
