CASTLETON, Vt. -- Junior midfielder Gabriella Hunt recorded her 100th career point Tuesday evening as she tallied two goals to help lead the Castleton University field hockey team to a 4-0 victory over Fitchburg State.
Hunt, who was previously at 98 career points heading into tonight's game, wasted no time in becoming the sixth player in program history to record 100 career points. After Allison Lowell shot on goal was deflected, Hunt scored on the rebound to hit the milestone at the 2:04 mark of the first quarter.
Olivia Trevisani doubled the Spartans lead at the 18:22 mark of the second quarter. Cydney Jeffrey sent a pass into the striking circle and Trevisani was able to push it past Falcons' goaltender Colleen Lamprey. Trevisani, who has started seven games this season, now has five goals this season which is the most she has scored in a single season.
Lowell gave the Spartans a 3-0 lead heading into halftime as she scored her ninth goal of the season.
Hunt would tally her second goal of the game at the 48:07 mark of the fourth quarter to finalize the scoring for the Spartans. With her two goals tonight, it marks the fourth time this season and eighth time in her career she has recorded multiple goal games.
Starting goaltender Tashia Pashby-Rockwood, playing in her final regular season home game at Dave Wolk Stadium, earned the win while recording three saves. Pashby-Rockwood would exit the game in the fourth quarter as Hope Brown finished the last 9:21 of the game.
Field hockey will return to action on Saturday, November 2 as it wraps up the regular season on the road as it takes on Southern Maine with postseason positioning on the line. With a win, the Spartans will earn the fourth seed in the upcoming Little East Conference playoffs and will host a quarterfinal game at Dave Wolk Stadium.
