On Saturday, Oct. 24, the Hopkins field hockey team picked up a win, prevailing 10-0 against the Bryn Mawr College Owls. The Blue Jays came into the conference game 6-9 overall with a 3-5 conference record. The Jays snapped a fourgame losing streak with a dominant effort against the Owls. Hopkins outshot Bryn Mawr 40-0 and took 23 corners while conceding none. The Jays set the tone early on, with sophomore Morgan Pothast scoring just over four minutes into the game with an assist from junior Shannon Cosgrove. Only 10 minutes later, junior Bridget Hampton doubled the lead. After two early goals, the floodgates opened with the Jays pouring in four goals in 13 minutes to push the lead to six goals at halftime. Cosgrove scored twice early on in the second half and ended up posting her best game as a Blue Jay with six points on two goals and two assists.
Despite their dominant win, the Blue Jays are eliminated from playoff contention since Conference foes Dickinson College Red Devils and Haverford College Fords are tied with six wins each. The win was a nice turn of events for the Blue Jays who came into the game on a four-game losing streak. The losing streak was tough since the Blue Jays lost two very close games to Dickinson (2OT) and Haverford. Looking forward to next season, the jays have a promising group of young players, with current sophomores Morgan Pothast, Francesca Cali and Greta Helvie starting all 15 games thus far. Fellow sophomore Princess Sutherland has also been an important contributor, tallying 11 points this season.
