Maryland Field Hockey Overwhelms Pacific, 8-0

Aug. 26, 2001

STANFORD, Calif. - It was a freshman coming out party in the Maryland field hockey team's second game on the West Coast as the Terps downed the University of the Pacific, 8-0. Newcomer Lucy Morris (Ascot Vale, Victoria, Australia) netted two goals and added two assists and Colleen Barbieri (Centereach, N.Y.) scored twice for the second game in a row as part of the freshman-led offensive barrage. Meanwhile, redshirt freshmen Sara Silvetti (Wapwallopen, Pa.) and Beth Hafer (Sinking Spring, Pa.) tallied their first collegiate goals as the Class of 2004 combined for 15 total points. Rookie goalkeeper Kerry Hearsey (Leicester, England) made two second-half saves as the Terp defense posted its second shutout in as many games.

The Terps controlled both ends of the field, outshooting the Tigers by a 38-3 margin. Including Saturday's 8-0 win over Cal-Berkeley, Maryland has amassed 16 goals on 74 shots and has limited opponents to zero goals and 10 shots.

A well-executed penalty corner put the Terrapins on the scoreboard at 27:38. After a pushout from Morris and a stick stop by All-American Autumn Welsh (Macungie, Pa.), redshirt freshman Silvetti rifled a shot to the right of the Tigers' diving Lisa Beach. Morris increased the Maryland lead with a slapshot after a pass from All-American Rachel Hiskins (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) at 21:38, and fellow newcomer Barbieri put the Terps up by three with her first goal of the day at 21:17. Senior back Welsh got in on the foray next, collecting a ball off the stick of Barbieri and flicking it into the cage. Morris concluded the first half of scoring when she snapped up a rebounded Caroline Walter (Reilingen, Germany) shot and ripped it past the keeper.

Every member of the Terps' travel roster saw action by the second half, which featured more Maryland execution. Senior Angie Klingerman (Bloomsburg, Pa.) slammed an upfield pass from Hiskins into the cage with 30:46 remaining in the game to make it 5-0. Later in the half, Klingerman delivered a sharp pass along the endline that Hafer slid off a defender and into the goal. With 15:13 to play Morris tipped a rebounded corner attempt to Barbieri, who buried it for the Terps' final score.

Senior Ashley Hohnstine (Oak Hill, Va.) played the first half in goal to share the shutout with Hearsey.

The Terps conclude their series at Stanford when they square off against the host Cardinal on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 1 p.m. PT. That game will be tape delay broadcast by Silicon Valley Community Cablevision (SVCC) for those in the Northern California area. Keep checking for every day's new Postcards from Cali.
