WASHINGTON - The Catholic University of America field hockey team earned its fourth-straight victory on Friday night at Cardinal Stadium as the Cards defeated Misericordia, 4-1.
Catholic controlled much of the game as they outshot the Cougars, 24-1 and totaled nine penalty corners while holding Misericordia without one.
Junior Molly Crowley got her first goal of the season just five minutes before the half as she collected a rebound in front of the Cougar cage and buried it for a 2-0 Catholic advantage at the intermission.
Less than 10 minutes later the duo did it again as Day passed one across goalkeeper's face and Anderson one-timed it home for her team-high fifth goal of the season.
Catholic, which has outscored its opponents 12-4 over the past four games, will take the momentum of its win streak against No. 1 Messiah next week on Faculty Appreciation night. The two teams will show down at 7 p.m., on Wednesday, September 20, at Cardinal Stadium.
