Kronick Breaks Goals Record, Hopkins Defeats McDaniel, 5-0
Oct. 24, 2012
BALTIMORE, MD - Sophomore Hannah Kronick scored two second half goals to eclipse the Hopkins all-time single-season goals record as the Blue Jays handily defeated McDaniel, 5-0, at Homewood Field. The victory set up a matchup with Gettysburg Saturday to decide the host of the Centennial Conference tournament.
Kronick notched her record-breaking 21st goal of the season as she used her body to turn on a McDaniel defender and poked the ball past goalkeeper Jan Wooley. Sarah Parola previously set the single-season goals record in 1997.
The Blue Jays took a 1-0 advantage and never looked back as Sydney Teng scored her career-high sixth goal of the season on a deft pass by Kronick. Kronick slipped a pass along the goal line to Teng, who then easily beat Wooley for the goal.
The Green Terror's best chance came just after the halftime break as they earned a corner and played a dangerous ball into the box. Schulte prevented the goal, however, by sweeping the ball off the goal line and into safety.
Kronick tied the single-season goals record in the 63rd minute when she volleyed a shot from six yards out past Wooley. Schulte then gave Hopkins a 4-0 lead just 10 minutes later with a perfectly placed free kick into the lower corner of the goal.
Kronick is just the third player in Hopkins history to notch 40 career goals. She has totaled an astounding 95 points through only 38 career matches.
The Blue Jays travel to Gettysburg, PA on Saturday as they close out their regular season slate against conference foe Gettysburg at 7:00 pm.
