PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania field hockey team scored just 1:01 into the game, added a second goal at the 5:08 mark, and never looked back in downing Saint Joseph’s, 5-2, on Wednesday afternoon at the Hawks’ Ellen Ryan Field.

With the win, Penn improved to 2-0 on the season. Saint Joseph’s fell to 0-5.

Freshman Jasmine Cole led the Quakers’ offense, scoring three goals. Emily Corcoran and Elise Tilton also scored for Penn.

Corcoran put Penn on the board just 1:01 into the contest, getting a breakaway from 25 yards out and beating Saint Joseph’s goalkeeper Rachel Barnett. Just four minutes later, Cole netted her first of the day, finishing a pass from Julie Tahan off a corner. That goal chased Barnett, as SJU put Amelia Deibler between the pipes.

That did not immediately change the game’s momentum. Instead, less than five minutes later Cole notched her second when she finished her own rebound.

Saint Joseph’s got two goals back in a span of 3:12 midway through the period. Jordan Martin got the Hawks on the board, with an assist from Nicole Gerdes, and then Shannon McNeill scored unassisted. Just like that, the score was 3-2.

Penn responded. Off a corner, Tahan fed Tilton and she scored to double the Quakers’ lead to 4-2.

The second half was relatively mild by comparison, as only goal was scored. It came amdist a scramble from Cole, completing her first collegiate hat trick in just her second collegiate game.

Carly Sokach was in goal for Penn, she had seven saves in the game. The Quakers outshot the Hawks, 17-14, and forced Deibler to make seven stops.

Penn is back in action on Sunday, traveling to Bucknell to face the Bison at 1 p.m.
