CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Senior forward Dalinda Banuelos and junior forward Adrienne Scibilia both scored two goals, leading the Boston University field hockey team (3-1) to a 6-1 non-conference win over the University of Massachusetts (2-4) at Jack Barry Field this afternoon.
BU dominated play on both sides of the field. The Terrier offense had 20 shots, while the defense held UMass to just five.
Banuelos started the scoring 8:05 into the game, scoring an unassisted goal to give B. U. a 1-0 lead. Forty-nine seconds later, senior forward Lindsey Domers added a score off an assist from senior forward Celeste Hubbard to double the Terrier advantage.
With 8:32 left in the opening half, junior forward Kara Rossi tipped in a crossing pass from redshirt freshman midfielder Erin Calamari to give BU a commanding 3-0 lead heading into the intermission.
Scibilia scored the first of her two goals at 42:58 of the second half on Hubbard's second assist of the contest to push BU's lead to 4-0. UMass then broke into the scoring column as junior forward Adrianne Monaco (Oxford, N.Y.) beat BU redshirt freshman goalkeeper Erin Prediger to the ball and batted it into the cage to cut the lead to 4-1.
BU would add goals from Banuelos at 48:19 and Scibilia at 65:38, both unassisted. It was Scibilia's first career multiple-goal game.
Minutewoman junior goalkeeper Christine Tocco (Reading, Mass.) made 11 saves in the contest. Prediger did not record a save in earning her third career win in four chances.
Massachusetts is back in action Sunday, Sept.14, at Harvard. The game is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
