Junior Molly Malloy scored two goals in the Jeffs' 9-0 win at WNEC.
SPRINGFIELD, MA – Amherst College junior Molly Malloy (Stamford, CT) and sophomore Carly Leahy (Weston, MA) each scored two goals as the Lord Jeffs rolled to a 9-0 victory over Western New England College in a non-conference field hockey game Thursday night.
The Lord Jeffs move over the .500 mark to 5-4 while the Golden Bears fall to 1-10.
Malloy started the scoring 11:56 into the contest before Leahy fired in a shot off a penalty corner with assists from junior Haley Douds (South Orange, NJ) and first-year Carly Dudzik (Darien, CT) at 25:46. Malloy then added her final goal just 1:18 later for a 3-0 advantage.
Amherst went on to take a 6-0 lead at halftime and coasted the rest of the way. Seven players wound up scoring goals for the Jeffs, who finished with 23 shots. Western New England managed only one shot, which came late in the second half. First-year goalie Lindsey Orszulak (Longmeadow, MA) compiled 10 saves for the Golden Bears.
The Lord Jeffs return to action Saturday, Oct. 11 when they host Colby College at 11 a.m. on Gooding Field.
