Goucher Breezes Past Elizabethtown in Landmark Play

TOWSON, Md. - Elizabethtown set new season marks offensively in shots and shots on goal, but fell 19-3 to Goucher Saturday afternoon in Landmark Conference action. Dana Robidoux led the Jays with a team-high seven shots.

The Gopher put in two more over the next three minutes to move ahead 3-1, but E-town's starting goalie Beata Palosz and the Jays' defense was able to keep them off the board for the next nine minutes, and that's when Robidoux cashed in again. She netted her second of the contest with 15:44 remaining in the opening half.

Goucher began to pull away after Robidoux's second, scoring the next five goals before the sophomore mid completed her hat trick with 3:46 left before halftime, making it 8-3. GU led 11-3 at the half.

After nine shots in the first half, Elizabethtown only registered four in the second half, but still finished with a season high 13 (ten on goal). Robidoux accounted for seven of the shots.
