Saints Stomp UMBC 3-0 in Field Hockey

Oct. 6, 2002

Box Score

Senior captain Amanda Flood (Old Tappan, N.J.) scored the Saints' first goal nearly 10 minutes into the first half off a feed from Michelle Dorscheid (Penfield, N.Y.) from the top of the circle helping Siena (4-6/4-4 NEC) to a 3-0 win over UMBC (4-6/3-4 NEC). The win was the second in as many days for Siena, which evened its conference record and equaled its win total from all of last season.

The Siena defense again did its job, holding the Retrievers with just one shot until 12 minutes remained in the game. UMBC's best scoring chance came on their one first half shot, but Siena goalie Kristen Heyde (Somer's N.Y.) made a nifty stick save to help preserve her second consecutive shutout.

Junior Erin Mead (Chestertown, N.Y.) got the Saints back on the board 18 minutes into the second half, as she rebounded a Lacee Iselo (Rome, N.Y.) attempt that hit the crossbar. The goal marked the third consecutive game in which Mead scored. Iselo's near miss came on the heels of an apparent goal she appeared to have scored a minute earlier. That tally was ruled to be a dangerous shot and the goal was taken off the board.

Amanda Fronhofer (Salem, N.Y.) rounded out the scoring with eight minutes remaining off an assist from classmate Angie Mead (Chestertown, N.Y.). Angie Mead created the scoring chance by beating UMBC goalie Meghan Polek and leaving Fronhoefer the empty cage.

The Siena defense allowed just four shots on the afternoon and an incredible six on the entire weekend.

The hot Saints continue their season-long six game homestand on Wednesday in a non-conference game with Vermont at 3:30 p.m.
