No. 3 Bowdoin 6, Husson 0
BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Bowdoin extended its home winning streak to 37 consecutive games with a 6-0 win against Husson on Tuesday night.
The third-ranked Polar Bears (8-1) won their sixth consecutive game this season and 11th all-time against the Eagles (7-4). Bowdoin has not surrendered a goal to Husson since 2003.
Katie Riley drew a pair of Husson defenders off the left post and centered a reverse stick pass towards the Eagles' net, as Rachel Kennedy cut in and one timed it for Bowdoin's first goal of the game with 7:01 off the clock. Riley had a hand in Bowdoin's next goal as she crossed another pass from the left side, which Emily Simonton redirected before Adrienne O'Donnell would bury it in the net.
With six minutes remaining in the half, Bowdoin took the 3-0 lead as Olivia King took a hard shot from the top of the circle. Kennedy and Lauren Schroeder each got a piece of the ball as it passed to ensure no quick sticks from Husson would deflect it away. Annika Durell denied Bowdoin of two goals, one in each half, with defensive saves for the Eagles.
The Polar Bears waited less than five minutes into the second half before tallying their fourth goal of the game. Coming off a penalty corner, Colleen Finnerty controlled the insert at the top of the circle and dished a pass right towards O'Donnell whose hard sweep traveled through traffic into the cage. Riley netted a goal of her own out of a scramble in front of the Eagles' net fifteen minutes into the half. Husson looked to crack Bowdoin's defense with its first corner at 63:15.
The Eagles were awarded four consecutive penalty corners, mustering a shot on cage each time, but were unable to break through. Meaghan Dwan recorded a defensive save during the flurry of Husson shots. Liz Znamierowski wrapped up Bowdoin's scoring as she on-touched a crossing pass from Pam Herter from the end line.
