Shorewomen Clinch Centennial's Third Seed with 18-11 Win Over McDaniel
Hubley Scores Eight Goals, Breaks Shorewomen's Career Draw Control Record in Victory
CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- Junior midfielder Emily Hubley (West Chester, Pa./Bayard Rustin) scored a career-high eight goals and broke the school record for career draw controls as host Washington College clinched the third seed in the upcoming five-team Centennial Conference Tournament with an 18-11 win over visiting McDaniel College this afternoon on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium. The Shorewomen finish the regular season 11-4 overall and 7-2 in conference play, while the Green Terror, who will host Muhlenberg in the tournament's lone first-round game Wednesday, drop to 9-7 and 5-4.
The score was tied 3-3 nearly midway through the first half before the Shorewomen ran off eight straight goals to blow the game open. Washington held an 11-5 halftime lead. The Green Terror cut the margin to four goals early in the second half, but Washington then went on a six-goal run to end any hope of a McDaniel rally, building a 17-7 cushion with 12:46 left.
Hubley's school record-breaking 164th career draw control came on the opening draw of the second half, surpassing the total of 163 set by Mandy Paré from 1996 through 1999. Hubley finished the game with four draw controls to boost her career total to 166. Her eight goals in the game came on just 11 shots, including eight on goal.
Junior attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, Pa./Penn Manor) added two goals and a career-best five assists in the win, while senior midfielder Carly Eisenbrandt (Baltimore, Md./Towson) had one goal and four assists. Freshman midfielder Katherine Vincent (Wilton, Conn/Wilton) contributed one goal, three assists, and a career- and game-best eight draw controls. Freshman goalie Allison Remenapp (Woodbine, Md./Century) started the game in goal for Washington and made 10 saves while allowing eight goals in 49:27. Senior Rachelle Martinez (Silver Spring, Md./Northwood) went the rest of the way and made two saves while allowing three goals in 10:33.
Julia Jacobs led McDaniel with three goals in the game, while Maggie Quinn and Danielle Entrot added two goals and one assist each. Samantha Barbeito tallied one goal and two assists for McDaniel. Kate Goldstein played the first half in goal for McDaniel and made five saves; Lily Glazerano made six saves in the second half.
The victory for the Shorewomen also gave the senior class of Eisenbrandt, Martinez, attacker Sydney Slavin (Timonium, Md./Dulaney), midfielder Kathleen Maleski (Mount Airy, Md./South Carroll), senior defender Meredith Callis (Baltimore, Md./Roland Park Country School), defender Jillian Undem (Bel Air, Md./Fallston), and attacker Laura Nicely (Baltimore, Md./Institute of Notre Dame) 45 wins over the past four years, making it the winningest senior class in the program's history.
The Shorewomen will play second-seeded Franklin & Marshall in a Centennial Conference semifinal game at top-seeded Gettysburg College next Saturday. Gettysburg will host the winner of Wednesday's McDaniel versus Muhlenberg game in the other semifinal. The two semifinal winners will meet in the championship game Sunday, May 4th.
