Sarah Sprague ’07 came up with a game-high seven saves for Bates.
HARTFORD, Conn. – Senior Erin Daly and sophomore Karli Del Rossi each tallied a goal and an assist to lead the Trinity College Bantams to a 3-0 win over the visiting Bates College Bobcats in a NESCAC field hockey game Wednesday afternoon at Sheppard Field.
Trinity improves to 8-3 overall and 5-2 in the NESCAC with its second straight win, while the Bobcats fall to 5-6 overall and 1-6 in the league.
Trinity put on the majority of the pressure early, then found the net 26:24 into the game on a shot from 10 feet in front of the cage by Del Rossi that rolled past Bates senior goalkeeper Sarah Sprague (Cleveland, Ohio) and into the right corner of the goal. The Bantams scored again 3:22 before the half on a blast by freshman forward Carolyn Wolcott from just inside the left of the circle.
The score remained the same throughout the second half until Daly flipped a pass from Del Rossi into the cage just before the horn.
The Bantams are 7-0 at home this fall.
Sprague finished with seven saves, while freshman goalie Jillian Fraker stopped three shots to earn the shutout for the Bantams. Trinity senior co-captain midfielder Lauren Malinowski and junior midfielder Katie Curran each recorded assists.
