NEW LONDON, Conn.-Taryn Murray (Hudson, Ohio) scored a pair of second half goals to lead the Wesleyan University field hockey team to a 4-0 victory at Connecticut College Thursday.
Senior Liz Chabot (Rye, N.Y.) chipped in with a goal and an assist as the Cardinals extended their winning streak to five games.
Junior net-minder Tori Redding (Branford, Conn.) finished with six stops en route to her sixth shutout of the season for the visitors. Becca Napolitano (Hamden, Conn.) made nine saves in the setback for the Camels.
Wesleyan held a 3-to-1 shot advantage in the opening half. But with 8:40 remaining, the Camels nearly got on the board when Ali Holland (Watertown, Mass.) fired a shot from the left side of thee circle but Redding was able to make a kick save to preserve the scoreless tie.
The Cardinals finally broke through 3:33 into the second stanza for the goal that proved to be the difference maker. Murray converted a penalty corner with assists coming from Chabot and Morgan McCauley (Rye, N.Y.).
Later on with 20:32 remaining, Chabot added an insurance marker with a nifty one-on-one move.
The visitors continued to pull away to take the 4-0 victory.
The Cardinals will visit Amherst College Saturday for a noon-time NESCAC match up in Western Mass. Connecticut College will close out the regular season Wednesday with a 6:00 p.m. game at Amherst College.
