BRYN MAWR, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr field hockey team put up yet another commanding performance in a non-conference game earlier Monday. The Owls thoroughly dismantled their opponents from Hood in the contest, outshooting the Blazers 48-0 in the game en route to a 7-0 victory on the day. Mary Cugini and Olivia Supron led the way for Bryn Mawr with two goals each, while Maggie Titus and Anna Hartzell combined for Bryn Mawr's second shutout of the young season.
Cugini got the rout started early with her first goal of the day off of a pass from first-year Courtney Cutone. The senior captain took the pass from Cutone on the right half of the circle and fired into the back of the cage to make it 1-0 early.
That strike just 5:24 into the game would prove to be the game winner, but the Owls were nowhere near done scoring. Just seven minutes later, Cutone made another great feed to Ryann McManus for the second goal of the game. Cutone received a pass right around midfield and turned and distributed to McManus near the top of the circle. The sophomore forward fired a hard shot that Hood goalkeeper Kenzie Blair got a pad on, but the ball glanced past and into the back of the cage to make it 2-0.
The Owls got two unassisted goals next, with Cugini and Supron each tallying a goal a few minutes apart on either side of the quarter break. Supron netted her second of the game just ten minutes later, completing her brace by pouncing on the rebound of a Sophia Pisano shot and redirecting the ball into the back of the cage. That goal gave Bryn Mawr a 5-0 lead headed into the halftime break.
Samantha Shaw was the next Owl to get her name in the scorebook, making a fantastic redirect off of a pass from Kelcie Eberharth. The first-year defender made a great run down the right side and played a low, hard ball into the center of the circle. Both Shaw and Kelly Bergman stuck out their sticks to try and deflect the ball, but ultimately it was Shaw who perfectly angled her stick to redirect the pass past the Hood goalkeeper and into the back of the cage.
Shaw would also get the assist on Bryn Mawr's final goal of the day, as Bryn Mawr recorded their seventh tally with five minutes left to play in the game. Off of a penalty corner, the Owls recorded several shots, including an effort from Shaw. That shot was saved, but Kelly Bergman pounced on the rebound and got one more shot off that finally snuck past the Blazers' goalkeeper and into the back of the cage to seal the 7-0 win for Bryn Mawr.
The Owls will be right back in action on Saturday, as they look to start their season 3-0. Bryn Mawr will welcome Drew to campus for another non-conference tilt, with gametime on Saturday slated for 1:00 PM.
