Oct. 20, 2012
BALTIMORE, MD - Sydney Teng registered two goals and an assist to power the No. 22 Johns Hopkins women's soccer team by Bryn Mawr on Senior Day at Homewood Field Saturday.
The victory clinched a Centennial Conference playoff berth for the seven-time defending champions, as Hopkins improved to 7-1 in conference play (12-3-1 overall). Byrn Mawr fell to 4-8-3 and 1-6-2 in the conference.
Hopkins established a dominant presence early in the match and scored in the 15th minute when Hannah Kronick used a cheeky back heel to beat goalkeeper Rebecca Joseph from five yards out. The goal was Kronick's conference-leading 19th strike of the season.
The Blue Jays then doubled their lead seven minutes later when Kelly Baker found Teng at the top of the 18-yard box. Teng collected the pass and finished into the side netting from 15 yards. Baker has tallied a point in six consecutive matches.
Maria Touloumes gave Hopkins a three-goal lead in the 28th minute after an excellent cross from Kronick. Teng brought down the cross and played the ball to Touloumes for the goal.
Teng capped off the Blue Jay scoring spree just three minutes after the halftime break when she beat two Owl defenders and shot inside the left post from the top of the 18-yard box.
The Blue Jays play their final regular season home match against McDaniel on Wednesday, October 24, at 7:00 p.m.
