University of Albany Field Hockey Shuts Out Quinnipiac, 3-0, in Ann Arbor, Mich. with Second-Half Scoring Surge - UAlbany Sports 2010

Ann Arbor, Mich. - Forward Daphne Voormolen was one of three Great Danes to find the back of the net in leading No. 19 UAlbany to a 3-0 victory over Quinnipiac in a non-conference field hockey matchup on Friday, Sept. 17 at the University of Michigan's Phyllis Ocker Field.

After a scoreless first half, Voormolen started the Great Dane scoring just one minute into the second stanza when she collected a rebound following a defensive save by a Quinnipiac defender. UAlbany doubled its lead in the 49th minute when sophomore Nina Walters found the back of the cage for her second goal on the season off of a shot from the right side of the circle beating Bobcat keeper Nicole Lewis. Senior Clephane added insurance for the Great Danes in the 62nd minute by scoring her first goal of the season on a designed play from the left side.

Great Dane goalkeepers Christine Hoffman and Kristi Troch combined for the shutout. Hoffman registered one save off of two Quinnipiac shots in the first half, while Troch made four saves off of the six shots she faced in the second frame. Lewis went the distance for Quinnipiac (2-4), registering seven saves. UAlbany outshot Quinnipiac 21-8 overall, including 15-6 the second half. The Great Danes also held a 10-2 advantage in penalty corners.

UAlbany (4-1) will return to action to face Michigan tomorrow afternoon at 10 a.m. in Ann Arbor.
