CAMBRIDGE, MA – Lesley University improved to 7-3-0 and 3-0-0 in New England Collegiate Conference play with an 11-0 win over Bay Path (2-7-0, 1-2-0 NECC) Tuesday night at Edward Field.
The Lynx wasted little time getting on the board, with Fralick (Woburn, MA/Woburn) finding Halen on a low pass to her right at the top of the keeper box, and Halen fired a shot right on Wildcats goalkeeper Melina Isdith, but the wet ball slipped through the keeper's hands for the game's first goal at 2:44.
Halen struck for her second time at 13:41, beating Isdith to her right on a shot from the left wing from just inside the keeper box. Her second of the night and tenth of the season put the home team ahead, 2-0.
After scoring two goals in Saturday night's 5-0 win over Elms, Sarah Apgar (Andover, NJ/Lenape) picked up where she left off, converting on a feed from Ryder (Glastonbury, CT/Mercy) at 30:51. Jackee Sanchez's (Santa Clarita, CA/Golden Valley) league-leading 11th goal of the year at 33:08 extended the lead to 4-0, and Ryder's third goal of the year and third points of the night upped the Lynx margin to 5-0.
Fralick scored her third points of the night at 38:13 on a shot inside the left post to make it a 6-0 lead at halftime. For the half, Lesley outshot the Wildcats 22-1.
An own-goal on a Lynx cross that deflected off a Bay Path defender and inside the left post opened the second half, followed by an Alexis Giusti (Meridian, CA/Yuba City) strike from 25 yards into the top left corner of the net to make it 8-0. Courtney Hopkins (Watertown, MA/Watertown) beat Isdith on a chip from across the field from 20 yards to the right, and Kelsey Fitzgerald (Upton, MA/Nipmuc) put the Lynx in double-figures on a long shot from the left corner that curved into the top center of the net over an outstretched Isdith.
Casey Decareau's (Haverhill, MA/Georgetown) second goal of the season wrapped up the scoring at 11-0.
For Bay Path, Isdith (Rego Park, NY/ Health Professions and Human Services) made a game-high 11 saves in net.
Now winners of four in a row, over which time the Lynx have outscored their opponents 33-0, Lesley returns to play on Saturday at noon at Wheelock. Bay Path plays host to Southern Vermont Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
