BRYN MAWR, Pa. – Junior Ashley Arbuckle tallied her third goal of the season but it wasn't enough as Johns Hopkins clipped field hockey 6-1 Saturday afternoon in Centennial Conference action.
The Blue Jays scored three goals in each half as they picked-up their sixth win of the season and fourth victory in conference action.
The day got started when Leslie MacManus scored on a rebound following a save by senior goalie Faith Westdorp in the 3rd minute of action. Six minutes later, Maddie Foyer took a pass from Alex Lantiere and found the back of the cage to give Hopkins an early 2-0 lead.
Lantiere pushed JHU's lead to 3-0 when she deflected a Kiane Duncan shot in front of the net. The Blue Jays held on to the 3-0 lead as the first-half came to an end.
In the second, it was Lantiere scoring again but this time Fryer lent a helping hand. Less than a minute later, Arbuckle recorded Bryn Mawr's only goal of the game as she was standing in front of Hopkins goalie Zoe Atabek and put a pair of shots on her. After the first shot resulted in a save, Arbuckle gave another crack at it and this time put it her shot just out of the reach of Atabek to put the Owls on the board.
In the 55th minutes, Elena Gresick scored on a penalty stroke followed by Fryer's second goal of the game six minutes later.
Bryn Mawr took 11 shots on the afternoon from four different players. Sophomore Kayla Bixler and juniors Arbuckle, Holly Constants and Madison Beckmann all recorded shots. Arbuckle's goal was the first goal that Bryn Mawr has scored against Johns Hopkins since the 2003 season.
Westdorp posted nine saves in 70 minutes of work in the cage. Bixler played a role in keeping the Blue Jays out of the cage as she posted a pair of defensive saves on the line in the 55th minute.
The Owls are back to action when they host Swarthmore on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 4:00 pm.
