Field Hockey Earns 6-0 Triumph Over Sacred Heart

Oct. 9, 2002

PROVIDENCE, RI - Junior Laurel Pierpont (Jacksonville, FL) scored two goals and added two assists, while classmate Meaghan Harwood (Hoosick Falls, NY) scored two goals, as the Bears (3-6) defeated Sacred Heart (5-9), 6-0, in a non-league contest Wednesday afternoon at Warner Roof.

Brown wasted little time in getting on the board, as senior Ashley Wallace (Avon, CT) scored what proved to be the game-winner just 4:43 into the game. Junior Lizzie Buza (Houston, TX) earned an assist on the goal, her eighth point of the season.

Pierpont increased the Bears' lead to 2-0 at the 15:04 mark, combining with senior Cory Pelletier (Walpole, MA) on one of Brown's nine penalty corners. Pelletier then scored Brown's third goal less than six minutes later on a penalty corner, combining with senior Colleen Kanara (Kennett Square, PA) and Pierpont as the Bears took a 3-0 lead into the break.

The Bears controlled the tempo in the second half as well, as Harwood scored her first of two goals less than two minutes into the second stanza, giving Brown a 4-0 lead.

Brown's final two goals were scored by Pierpont, with an assist going to Kanara, with 26:33 remaining in the contest, and Harwood, with an assist going to Pierpont, with 22:31 left to play.

The entire team played strong in front of sophomore goalie Katie Noe (Simsbury, CT), who was forced to make just one save in net, while Robyn Breer and Jessica Becque combined for seven saves for the Pioneers.

Brown continues action on Saturday when it hosts the University of the Pacific at 12:00 noon on Warner Roof.
