Nov. 1, 2008
WORCESTER, Mass. - Casey Boland recorded her first career hat trick for Holy Cross, as the Crusaders handed the Lafayette women's soccer team a 4-0 defeat in the final game of the 2008 season for the Leopards.
Boland scored the first goal of the afternoon at the 4:38 mark when she drew Lafayette goalkeeper Allison Malloy off her line and found the back of the net.
The Crusaders went ahead, 2-0, when Shelby Stand took a pass from Boland and scored in the lower corner of the net.
Holy Cross continued to control the game when Boland scored her second goal of the game off a penalty kick. She then put the game out of reach for the Leopards when she scored her third goal of the afternoon, putting Holy Cross up 4-0.
Malloy tallied two saves for the Leopards in goal, while freshmen Meredith McCann and Shannon Neschke recorded four of the Leopards' six shots. Lafayette was able to force seven corner kicks inside the Crusader defense, but never found the back of the net.
