Burns Leads Corsairs Past Gulls

BEVERLY, Mass. – University of Massachusetts Dartmouth sophomore Delaney Burns (Wayne, N.J.) scored a career-high two goals to power the Corsairs to a 2-1 victory over Endicott College this evening in a NCAA Division III field hockey match.

The Corsairs won for the second straight time on the road to improve to 2-1 on the campaign, while the Gulls evened their record at 2-2.

Burns deposited her second goal of the season in the 34th minute with an assist by senior Jill Levrault (Somerset, Mass.) and banked her team-leading third season goal into the back right off a pass from classmate Caroline Daubitz (Feeding Hills, Mass.) in the 46th minute.

Senior forward Morgan Bresnahan (South Burlington, Vt.) gave the Gulls a ray of hope with her third goal of the season on a deflected shot she tipped into the back right of the cage from senior midfielder Ashleigh Allen (Glastonbury, Conn.) with less than three minutes remaining in the game.

Sophomore Allison Burke (Franklin, Mass.) turned aside eight of the nine shots she faced, while Rose Bradley made three stops.

Endicott held a 20-8 advantage in shots, while the Corsairs took five of the nine penalty corners.

UMass Dartmouth will return to action at noon on Saturday, Sept. 12, when the Corsairs open their Little East Conference schedule against Eastern Connecticut State University.
