Driscoll Contributes Goal, Assist for Camels
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Katelyn Driscoll (Peabody, Mass.) provided all the offense her team would need with a goal in the 39th minute of play and added an assist on an insurance marker in the second half to push Connecticut College (2-1) past a feisty Mount Holyoke College squad (1-3) in a 3-0 victory on Tempel Green Thursday.
Sharon Katz (Barrington, R.I.) and Chelsea Johnson (Portland, Maine) chipped in with scores for the Camels, who held an 18-8 advantage in shots en route to their 16th consecutive victory in this rivalry.
Senior net-minder Jenna Ross (Longmeadow, Mass.) stopped five Mount Holyoke shots to earn the shutout victory for the hosts. First year keeper Caitlin Pacheco (Montclair, N.J.) made eight saves in her inaugural appearance in goal for the Lyons.
In a closely contested first half, the Camels finally got on the board with 6:21 remaining. Driscoll corralled a loose ball in traffic in front of the goal and found the back of the net with her second score of the season. The Camels out-shot the Lyons 10-to-5 in the opening frame to carry the 1-0 lead into the break.
In the second stanza, the Camels doubled their lead in the 79th minute. Driscoll was able to loft a pass over the head of Pacheco in the box. Sharon Katz controlled the ball and chipped in the 14th goal of her career. In the 83rd minute, Chelsea Johnson rifled home a blast from just outside the 18 to close out the scoring.
