Freshman Danielle Avenoso (Pompton Lakes, N.J.) and sophomore Chelsea Osbrey (North Kingston, R.I.) each scored two goals as the Quinnipiac University field hockey team pushed its winning streak to six games with a 4-0 shutout of Siena on Saturday afternoon in Hamden, Conn.
The Bobcats tallied three goals in the opening 19 minutes and never looked back in the Northeast Conference contest. Quinnipiac improved to 6-4, 6-0 in league play with the win. Siena dropped to 2-4, 2-3 in NEC action.
Avenoso opened the scoring at 27:52 of the first half, taking a feed from senior co-captain Jackie Langenstein (Pittsburgh, N.Y.) and tucking it past Siena keeper Kristen Heyde.
Just over eight minutes later, Avenoso netted her second of the day in a flurry in front of the cage. Osbrey assisted on the marker.
Osbrey got into the goal scoring act with 16:22 left in the first half, finishing off a pass from Kristen McCarthy (Suffern, N.Y.) for a three-goal advantage.
The Bobcats closed out the scoring in the second half on Osbrey's second goal of the afternoon. Eileen Gallagher (Drexel Hill, Pa.) assisted on the goal.
The two-goal effort was the third of the season for Avenoso and the second for McKay. Quinnipiac has not lost a game this year in which either of those players has scored more than one goal.
Goalkeepers Erin McKay (Norwood, Mass.), Lacey Johnson (Acton, Mass.) and Loren Montgomery (Saugus, Mass.) combined on the shutout for the Bobcats.
McKay made two saves in just over one half of action. Johnson did not make a stop in her time in the game, while Montgomery closed the day with one save for Quinnipiac.
The Bobcats take the field again tomorrow afternoon for a non-league game against the University of Maine. That contest will take place at Hofstra University.
