The Short Story: Michelle Santangelo netted her third hat trick of the season as the Johns Hopkins women's soccer team defeated Ursinus, 6-0 on the road on Saturday afternoon.
How it Happened
Just over 16 minutes into the match, Carly Lupton-Smith took a shot into the lower left corner off a deflection in the center of the box and scored her first goal of the season to put Hopkins up 1-0.
JHU made the score 2-0 at 22:24 as Santangelo tapped in the rebound off a Maddy Rocks header for the score.
Hallie Horvath made it a 3-0 Blue Jay advantage as her 30-yard shot from the left side found the back of the net in the upper right corner at 57:18.
Santangelo scored her second goal of the game as she took a pass from Horvath and headed the ball past the Bears goalkeeper Marisa Kalkstein at 59:19. The goal gave JHU a 4-0 lead.
In what was almost a mirror image of her second goal, Santangelo took a Bailey Monaco pass and put the header in the top right corner for the hat trick at 62:00, as Hopkins took a 5-0 lead.
Kristen Nixon scored from 15-yards out as her shot found the top right corner of the net at 85:28 to make the score 6-0, and Hopkins would go on to win the game by that score.
