Cardinal field hockey team leans on Hope


Hope Burke recorded her second multi-goal game of the year and No. 13 Stanford blanked visiting UC Davis, 5-0, Friday night in a NorPac Conference contest.

Courtney Haldeman, Clemence Couteau and Alex McCawley also scored for the Cardinal (9-3, 1-1 NorPac), which had a 23-2 edge in shots and 8-0 advantage in penalty corners. It also avenged a loss to the Aggies less than a week ago.

Dulcie Davies was credited with her fifth shutout of the year, thanks to a strong effort from the Cardinal defense.

Haldeman opened the game's scoring just 1:10 into the match, redirecting a strong feed from McCawley to the right corner of the cage.

Burke scored her first goal just before halftime. Maddie Secco made a couple of nice moves on the left side of the cage to evade defenders and deliver the assist.

Couteau opened the scoring in the second half, tapping in a rebound directly in front of the cage off a shot by McCawley.

Burke followed with her second of the night and team-leading seventh goal of the season less than 10 minutes later when she redirected a strong pass from Elise Ogle to the top right corner of the cage.

McCawley added the fifth Stanford goal in the 69th minute with a highlight-reel shot. Positioned just inside the circle on the right side, McCawley ripped a shot to the top left corner of the cage.

The Cardinal will look to carry its momentum into Sunday as it hosts Yale at noon.
