UNION – The Kean University field hockey team used a balanced scoring attack as they defeated Richard Stockton College, 3-0, Friday evening in New Jersey Athletic Conference action.
The Cougars (8-4, 2-1 NJAC) got things going in the first half as senior Erica Kelly scored what would be the game-winner at 16:27 after dribbling in from the left side. KU then tacked on another goal in the first half as junior Olivia Triano drilled a shot from the top off the circle off a pass from Amie Hoch on the penalty corner opportunity. The Cougars closed out the scoring when rookie Makia Sturgis scored off a scramble in front of the cage.
Senior Lauren Dobbs made one save in the shutout win while senior Debi O’Kane recorded six of eight total saves for the Ospreys (1-12, 0-4 NJAC).
The Cougars outshot Stockton, 16-3, while holding a 18-9 advantage in penalty corners.
Kean returns to NJAC action on Tuesday when they travel to Ramapo College. Richard Stockton plays the same day as they host Drew University.
