No. 14 UMass Continues Win Streak With 3-0 Victory Over Harvard
Sep 6, 2013
AMHERST, Mass. - Three Minutewomen recorded one tally each while the UMass defense held Harvard field hockey without a shot on goal during a 3-0 victory over the Crimson on Friday evening. Lauren Allymohamed, Izzie Delario and Brooke Sabia each shared the scoring responsibilities at Garber Field as the Minutewomen improved to 4-0 to start a season for the ninth time in the history of the program and first since the beginning of the 1996 season.
Allymohamed secured her second goal of the season 24 minutes, 53 seconds into the first half following a penalty corner. Charlotte Verelst stopped the play and fired the ball into the circle, where Allymohamed redirected it by Harvard goalkeeper Jenn Hatfield.
After 38 minutes of scoreless field hockey, Delario recorded the final UMass tally with 1:01 left to play. The Rehoboth Beach, Del., native dribbled into the circle and across the front of the cage before sending a shot into the lower-left corner for the freshman's second collegiate goal.
UMass (4-0 overall) led in shots, 20-4 as the Minutewomen defense kept the ball away from sophomore goalkeeper Sam Carlino throughout the contest. Penalty corners also favored UMass by a wide margin, 13-2. Hatfield finished with nine save for the Crimson (0-1).
UMass will complete its third consecutive home game on Sunday, Sept. 8, when No. 19 Boston College (4-0) visits Garber Field for a 3 p.m. contest. Admission is free for all home games.
