Four Second-Half Goals Power Columbia Past Bears, 4-0

Oct. 6, 2007

PROVIDENCE, RI - The Brown field hockey team (0-10, 0-3) was tied 0-0 with Columbia (5-5, 1-2) at the half, but the Lions scored four second-half goals to earn a 4-0 victory on Saturday afternoon in New York. Columbia was led by Julia Garrison, who had two goals and an assist, assisting on the game-winner and scoring the next two goals.

After a scoreless first half, Columbia scored all it would need for the win just 1:15 into the second half when Liz Reeve collected the ball from Garrison and beat freshman Lauren Kessler (Burtonsville, MD), woe finished with nine saves, from the right side.

Garrison then scored back-to-back goals at 45:44 and 49:17 for a 3-0 Columbia lead with 20 minutes remaining. The Lions capped the scoring 10 minutes later for the 4-0 final.

The Lions led in both Corners (16-8) and in shots (19-12), including a 9-1 advantage in the first half. Freshmen Katie Hyland (Riegelsville, PA) and Tacy Zysk (Walpole, MA) led the Bears with three shots each, while junior Sara Eaton (Arlington, VA) had two, including a penalty stroke. Junior Victoria Sacco (Madison, NJ) picked up her second defensive save of the season to help lead Brown's defense.

After four straight road games, Brown returns home to Warner Roof this weekend when it hosts Princeton in a 12:00 noon contest.
