CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- Host Washington College scored on its first 18 shots on goal en route to a wild, record-setting 24-14 win Friday over 18th-ranked Susquehanna.
The Shorewomen (1-1) set a new school record with 18 goals in the first half and tied their record for goals in a game. Washington freshman midfielder Alli Dudley (New Windsor, Md./Francis Scott Key) matched the single-game school record with seven assists, while junior midfielderEmily Hubley (West Chester, Pa./Bayard Rustin) scored her 100th career goal.
Susquehanna (1-2) was on its third goalie of the game - Alyssa Rothman - by the time the Crusaders notched their first save with 2:21 remaining in the first half. Washington held an 18-10 lead at halftime and led by as many as 11 goals in the second half.
Hubley scored her 100th career goal, becoming the 11th Shorewoman to reach that mark, off a feed from freshman midfielder Cara Pascarella (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollows Hills East) with 23:53 left in the second half. Dudley's record-tying seventh assist came on the final goal of the game with 1:12 to play. That goal was scored by junior attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, Pa./Penn Manor) and was Lovett's career- and game-high seventh goal of the game, one more than she scored all of last season.
Lovett, Hubley, and freshman midfielder Katherine Vincent (Wilton, Conn/Wilton) all scored five or more goals in the win for the Shorewomen as Hubley had six goals and Vincent scored five goals and added one assist. Dudley scored one goal to go along with her seven assists. Senior midfielder Carly Eisenbrandt (Baltimore, Md./Towson) added three goals and two assists, while Pascarella scored two goals and had one assist. Sophomore attacker Carley Kendall (Harleysville, Pa./Souderton Area) registered one assist for the Shorewomen.

The Crusaders struggled with Washington's ride all game long, going just 5-for-13 on clears.

Washington's previous 24-goal efforts were a 24-16 win over Villa Julie on April 17, 2003 and a 24-14 win over Muhlenberg on March 27, 2004. The single-game school record of 11 assists was set by Tammy Tiehel in 1983 and matched twice last season by Mollie Shipley. Today's victory, the first career head coaching win for Heidi Yetman, also ran Washington's non-conference home winning streak to 19 games and was the Shorewomen's first win over a nationally-ranked opponent since a10-7 win over 14th-ranked Stevens in West Palm Beach, Fla., on March 16th, 2006.
The Shorewomen return to action Wednesday with an 11:30 a.m. game against St. Lawrence in West Palm Beach, Fla.
