Kronick scores twice as Johns Hopkins cruises to 4-0 win against Ursinus
BALTIMORE, Md. -- Junior Hannah Kronick had her fourth multi-goal game of the season as Johns Hopkins cruised to a 4-0 victory agianst Ursinus on Monday evening. Junior Emily Nagourney scored her first goal of the 2013 campaign in what was the eventual game winner, while junior Sydney Teng rounded out the scoring with a goal off a direct kick.
Fresh off her record-setting performance against Bryn Mawr, forward Hannah Kronick was at it again scoring goals in the 36th and 45th minutes. Her first came off a corner kick late in the opening half, as the ball bounced around aimlessly in the box. Ursinus keeper Kara DiJoeseph punched out the free ball, which Kronick then one-timed from inside the center of 18. Ten minutes later, senior Kelly Baker played a perfect through ball down the left wing, which Kronick handled easily and blasted into the top right of the net just before halftime.
Nagourney got the Blue Jays started with her first goal of the year directly off a well-placed corner from senior Christina Convey. After the ball bounced out in front of the net, Nagourney put it past the keeper on a deflection to give Hopkins a 1-0 lead. Teng scored the only goal of the second half, taking a precise shot off a direct kick right in front of the 18-yard box to record her fourth of the season. Hopkins was boosted by another strong defensive effort, as goalies Kelly Leddy and Sarah Benett combined to shutout the visiting Bears.
Hannah Kronick's goals propelled her into third all-time in the Centennial Conference in goals (58), passing Missy Coroso from Franklin & Marshall, who scored 57 during her career (1995-98). The No. 2 spot in the conference record books is well within her reach, as Kronick is one goal away from tying Dawn Iberer's mark of 59 (Muhlenberg, 2000-03).
