When and Where: September 13, 2019 – Manchester, N.H. (Larkin Field)
Score: Southern New Hampshire University 5, Mercy College 1
Records: SNHU 3-1 (1-0), Mercy 0-3 (0-1)

Sophomore Emily Campbell (Raynham, Mass.) matched her career high with five points on two goals and an assist to lead the Southern New Hampshire University field hockey team to a 5-1 triumph against Mercy College in its Northeast-10 opener Friday evening at Larkin Field.

  • Campbell etches a new personal best just five days after setting a career high with two goals and an assist in an 8-0 win at Converse College. She potted the eventual game winner midway throiugh the 21st minute.
  • Junior Hélène Servais (Brussels, Belgium) was the other multiple-point scorer for the Penmen with a goal and an assist.
  • Southern New Hampshire seized control early in the fourth quarter, doubling its lead to 4-0 with goals from senior Laura van der Doorn (Beverwijk, The Netherlands) and Servais in a span of 1:03. van der Doorn put forth a ridiculous effort in which she batted a tipped ball out of the air to herself and volleyed it into the back of the net, while Servais, who used an individual effort to evade Mercy defenders and create space for her self on the left side of the circle, unleashed an absolute rocket that stuck inside the far right post as she fell to the turf.
  • The Penmen outshot the Mavericks by a 35-4 margin, which included a 24-3 advantage.
  • Graduate student Melanie Rennie (Madison, Conn.) turned away two of the three shots she faced, with Mercy goalkeeper Lauren Viscione racked up 19 stops.
  • van der Doorn extended her scoring streak to four straight games to open the season.
  • Freshman Taylor Marchman (Derry, N.H.) began the scoring with 1:24 remaining in the opening stanza with her second career goal.
  • The Penmen have now outscored their opposition, 23-5, through their first four games.
  • Southern New Hampshire has won two of the three meetings in the all-time series, including two straight.
  • SNHU resumes its schedule Tuesday (September 17) when it travels to Saint Michael's College for an NE10 tilt.
  • The next home contest for the Penmen is Wednesday, Sept. 25 (6 p.m.) when they play host to Stonehill College at Larkin Field.
