Field Hockey Cruises by Cedar Crest 9-1

BRYN MAWR, Pa. – The Bryn Mawr College field hockey team opened the 2013 BMC Field Hockey Tournament with a statement as they topped visiting Cedar Crest 9-1.

It took the Owls only five minutes to find the back of the cage. Freshman Holly Senebandith sent a pass to the front of the cage where junior Holly Constants played the ball and played it past Kaitlyn Brendlinger. Two minutes later it was Senebandith lending a helping hand again, but this time it was to junior Ashley Arbuckle.

In the tenth minute of play, it was Senebandith finding the back of the cage as Constants picked-up her first of three assists on the day.  Five minutes later, junior Mikah Farbo got in on the action as she fed a diving Arbuckle in front of the goal who redirected the shot past Brendlinger.

During a two-minute span, sophomore Ashlee Williams and Farbo both found the back of the cage. Williams was assisted by Senebandith while Farbo got a helping hand from Constants.

As the first-half was coming to a close, freshman Cassandra Garcia-Bacha netted her first collegiate goal as Constants picked-up her third assist of the game. The Owls took a commanding 7-0 lead into the half.

Constants tacked on two more goals for the Owls in the second-half. Her first goal was unassisted and her second she recieved help from Haley Newsham and Garcia-Bacha.

Cedar Crest finally got on the board break-up Bryn Mawr's shutout as Jessica Sanberg assisted Erin Studer in the final minute of game.

For the Owls, six different players recorded goals while the goalkeeping duo of sophomore Alex Weinfeld and senior Faith Westdorp combined for five assists.

The last time Bryn Mawr scored nine goals in a game was last year when they tallied nine-goals in back-to-back games against Sweet Briar (9-2) and Notre Dame University of Maryland (9-1).

Bryn Mawr will take on Drew University on Sunday, Sept. 8, in the Championship Game of the 2013 BMC Field Hockey Tournament. The Rangers defeated St. Mary's College of Maryland 1-0 in today's second game. St. Mary's and Cedar Crest will play at 11:00 am in the Consolation Game.
