Stanford on target in field hockey victory Sunday


Stanford sophomore Corinne Zanolli completed a productive weekend with three goals and a pair of assists and No. 20 Stanford cruised past Central Michigan, 8-0, on Sunday for a three-game sweep through Bloomington.

Zanolli scored 10 goals in the three games for the Cardinal (3-3), which dominated every offensive category.

Stanford outshot the Chippewas (1-6) by a 25-2 margin and won all nine penalty corners.

Stanford built a 4-0 halftime lead thanks to a relentless offensive attack. Isabelle Pilsonopened the scoring in the second minute, Emma Christus picked up her first two goals of the season, and Zanolli slotted her first of the day to put the Cardinal out of reach at the break.

Stanford continued the offensive pressure in the second half. Zanolli added another goal just five minutes into the half, and then Phoebe Crosthwaite scored twice in two minutes, her first two goals of the season, to put the Cardinal ahead 7-0. Zanolli picked up her hat trick to close the scoring in the 65th minute.

Zanolli looks like she'll pass her total of 15 from last season.

Junior attacker Jessica Welch was another key player in the offensive attack, with two assists and a shot on the afternoon.

The Cardinal held the Chippewas without a shot during junior Kelsey Bing's 60 minutes in net.

CMU had two shots in the final minutes of the game, but freshman Hannah Santos was there to pick up the first two saves of her collegiate career and preserve the shutout.

Stanford, which has been on the road for five of the first six games of the season, returns to The Farm for a four-game homestand. It begins Friday night at 7 p.m. when the Cardinal hosts Yale on the Varsity Turf.
