Freshman Emily Campbell (Raynham, Mass.) scored the first two goals of her career to help the Southern New Hampshire University field hockey team knock off Adelphi University, 4-0, Saturday afternoon at Larkin Field.

STANDOUT PERFORMERS

  • In addition to Campbell's two tallies, freshman Faye Turkmen (Bergen, The Netherlands) added a goal and an assist, while redshirt-junior Cassidy Huckins (Loudon, N.H.) also scored.
  • Senior goalkeeper Melanie Rennie (Madison, Conn.) stopped all four shots she faced over the opening 59:45 of action.

HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • Southern New Hampshire struck just 54 seconds into the contests when junior Laura van der Doorn (Beverwijk, The Netherlands) intercepted a clearing pass on the right side of the circle and slid a pass to her left for Turkmen, who beat Adelphi goalkeeper Leah Savage to make it 1-0.
  • SNHU almost made it 2-0 in the sixth minute, as senior Maddie Holt (Seabrook, N.H.) sent a long pass ahead to Huckins, who broke free and was 1-on-1 with Savage, but the goalie slid to kick the ball away.
  • Adelphi nearly pulled even in the 14th minute in what was its most dangerous chance of the day, but the ball rolled past Rennie and across the goalmouth, before going out of play. Southern New Hampshire immediately countered with a hard shot in close from Huckins, but Savage was again up to the task.
  • The Penmen finally doubled their lead in the 23rd minute when Campbell collected a rebound off a van der Doorn shot and used a reverse-stick hit to send the ball inside the left post.
  • Campbell scored again 6:30 later when back-to-back rebounds came out to Campbell, who shoveled the second chance into the left side of the goal to stretch the lead to 3-0.
  • Huckins capped the scoring midway through the 42nd minute when she collected a pass across the circle from right-to-left and scored at the near post.
  • Campbell nearly secured the hat trick in the 56th minute, but was stopped on three consecutive bids by Savage.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE

  • Savage piled up 16 saves for Adelphi. Sophomore Kate Pigsley (East Kingston, N.H.) did not face a shot over the final 10:15.
  • Southern New Hampshire held a 25-4 advantage in shots, including 10-1 in the second half.
  • The Penmen also owned an 8-7 edge in penalty corners.

NOTES

  • Southern New Hampshire has won three-in-a-row, which is one victory shy of the program record.
