WESTMINSTER, Md. – Lizzie Boorse recorded a goal and two assists to lead Dickinson to a 5-1 victory over McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) field hockey action on Tuesday.

            Kristin Mele (Ellicott City, Md./River Hill) tallied the lone goal for the Green Terror (7-7, 4-2 CC), who has alternated wins and losses over its last 10 games.
            Off a rebound at the 20:14 mark, Boorse dumped a short pass to Katelynn Bias to stake Dickinson to a 1-0 lead.
            Just 53 seconds later off a corner, Boorse found Amanda Zavada on the near post to double the advantage.

            Just 1:08 into the second half, Michelle Fluty (Huntingtown, Md./Calvert) found Mele for her team-leading fifth assist and Mele’s team-best ninth goal of the season.
            Just under four minutes later, Bias returned the favor from earlier and found Boorse on a fast break in front of the cage to re-establish the three-goal lead.
            In the 56th minute, Zavada capped the scoring getting a stick on a pass from Moore to redirect the ball into the backside of the cage.
            McDaniel took 10 shots in the second half to finish with a 12-10 advantage for the game and had all six penalty corners awarded to finish with a 7-6 edge.
