BOSTON, MA - Freshman forward Julienne McCuish (Mashpee, MA) netted a pair of goals to lead the University of Massachusetts Boston over host Newbury College, 7-1, this afternoon in Chestnut Hill, MA. The Beacons goal output of seven ties a school-record that has been achieved four times with the last coming on October 2, 2007 vs. Newbury. UMass Boston extends its unbeaten streak to a school record-tying three matches and improves to 4-5-1, while the Nighthawks fall to 0-10-0.
McCuish's first goal was the first of her collegiate career coming at 29:42 on a feed from freshman midfielder Taylor Massmann (Kingston, MA) to give the Beacons a 3-0 lead and her second score capped the match with just seven seconds left in the contest on a cross from sophomore forward Jillian Moreira (Somerville, MA) to give UMass Boston a 7-1 advantage.
Freshman midfielder Molly Kuchar (Ashville, NC) put the Beacons on the board with her third goal of the season coming 14 minutes into the match. Junior midfielder Kristi Morales (San Francisco, CA) gave UMB a 2-0 margin at the 18:37 mark with her first goal of the season on junior midfielder Erika Marsters' (Mashpee, MA) team-leading third assist of the season and sixth of her career for the fourth-highest total in school history. Massman increased the UMass Boston lead to 4-0 with her first collegiate goal at 33:35 of the first half, before sophomore defender Michelle Cain (Essex, MA) found the back of the net for her first career goal, as well, at the 38:03 mark of the first half for a 5-0 advantage.
Newbury College broke into the scoring column on an unassisted goal by Ashley Greene-Allen (Brockton, MA) with just 28 seconds left before the half to cut the deficit to 5-1.
Freshman forward Kristin Mulry (Holbrook, MA) converted a pass from junior forward Stacy Leonard (Rockland, MA) for her team-leading fifth goal of the season at 65:45 of the second half for a 6-1 UMB lead.
UMass Boston dominated the shots to the tune of 42-3. Sophomore Ashley McRoberts (Merrimack, NH) saw action in the first half for the Beacons and stopped one of two shots, while junior Courtney Haroules (Littleton, MA) turned away the only shot she saw in the second half. Anastasia Tridenti (Gloucester, RI) made 10 saves for the Nighthawks.
