Newly appointed America East Offensive Player of the Week Corinne Zanolli scored twice, one of five different scorers as No. 18 Stanford downed host Brown 6-0 in a nonconference field hockey contest on Tuesday. She scored on two of her four shots.

Playing the first of a four-match, six-day road trip, Stanford (3-2) relied on its efficiency and scored three goals before and after halftime.

Stanford and Brown were even in shots (17-17) and penalty corners (5-5), but the Cardinal managed to convert its chances.

Sarah Johnson gave the Cardinal a 1-0 lead at the 10:01 mark of the first quarter. Emma Alderton, Phoebe Crosthwaite and Molly Redgrove all scored for the first time this season while Zanolli increased her goal total to eight.

Brown (1-2) remained within striking distance thanks to Dani van Rootselaar's game-high seven shots.

U.S. national team member Kelsey Bing made six saves over the first three quarters before Hannah Santos kept the shutout in tact for the final 15 minutes.

Stanford travels to Harvard for a 1 p.m. game Thursday.
