Central Michigan 6, St. Louis 1

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – Junior Mary Alice Moore recorded her first career hat trick and the Central Michigan defense held Saint Louis without a goal for 70 minutes Sunday afternoon en route to a 6-1 victory at the CMU Field Hockey Complex.
Moore put the Chippewas (2-0) in front just 7:16 into the contest and added a pair of second-half goals to bring her season and weekend total to four. Seniors Bailey McKeon and Abby Roth each scored their first goals of the season, as did freshman Lauren Jacobsen.
Sophomore Anne Middeldorp, senior Julianna Makrinos, junior Jordyn Brengosz, junior Cayleigh Immelman, freshman Maude Stalars and junior Maureen Riley each had an assist in the contest. Sophomore Kaysie Gregory added a pair of assists, bringing her point total for the opening weekend to five (one goal, three assists).
The Chippewas led 2-0 at halftime before Moore scored goals at the 36:50 mark and 49:37 mark of the second half to push the lead to 4-0. The junior was replaced by Jacobsen following her completion of the hat trick and Jacobsen scored just 38 seconds later to push the CMU ahead 5-0.
Roth capped the scoring by corralling a rebound in front of the cage and burying a shot in the back of the net at the 53:26 mark.
Sophomore goalkeeper Sadie Reynolds needed to make just one save over the first 55:01 of the contest to keep her sheet clean through the opening weekend of the season. True freshman Sara Nicholas made her collegiate debut over the finale 14:59 looking to secure a second-straight shutout for the Chippewas, but a goal off a corner in extra time by Faith Macklin put the Billikens (0-2) on the board for the first time this season.
The Chippewas will begin a trip of seven-straight contests away from home next weekend at Delaware on Friday, Sept. 6 at 3 p.m., before a neutral site contest at Drexel University versus Lafayette on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 2 p.m.

Miami 6, Radford 1

FARMVILLE, Va. – A dominant team performance by the Miami University field hockey squad led the RedHawks to a 6-1 neutral site victory over Radford on Sunday. Five different Miami players scored, led by senior forward Alyssa Logan with two goals. The RedHawks improve to 1-1 on the season, while the Highlanders fall to 0-2.
“Today was about our ability to be loyal to RedHawk hockey,” said senior back Sid Marcum. “We had to be consistent with our concepts as a program, and be disciplined and composed.”
Miami outshot Radford, 26-1, on Sunday keeping play in its attacking zone the majority of the time. When the Highlanders were able to mount an offensive attack, the RedHawks were able to thwart it without a shot being placed on senior goalkeeper Sarah Mueller.
Miami got on the board in the fifth minute when junior midfielder Gabby Goldach put a backhand shot past the goalkeeper from about the penalty stroke line. The RedHawks wasted no time making it 2-0 when junior forward Valentina Neira sent a pass across the goal that Logan was able to tip in.
Radford was able to cut the deficit to 2-1 in the 28th minute when it scored on a penalty corner. It looked like it would be going into halftime with that score, but Miami was able to earn a penalty corner of its own in the final seconds. On the corner, junior forward Emily Gruesser passed it in to junior back Ali Froede. Froede sent it back to Gruesser, who put it home to send the RedHawks into the break in front, 3-1.
Sophomore midfielder Bea Dechant made it 4-1 in the 43rd minute on a penalty corner when she scored off an assist from Neira. In the 48th minute, Dechant found Logan on the right side of the net. Logan tipped the ball in for her second goal of the day. Miami completed its scoring in the 52nd minute when Froede scored on a penalty corner off an assist from Long.
Gruesser led the RedHawks with five shots, including four on goal. Logan and Goldach had four shots each. Miami had a 10-2 advantage in penalty corners.
“Today we showed what type of character we have,” said Froede. “After a slow first half, we came out a completely different team in the second half and were able to control the game, keep possession and use every player on the field. We worked for each other on offense and defense, and that was the key to our success.”
The RedHawks remain in Farmville, where they will take on host Longwood Monday at noon.
