Field Hockey Rebounds with 5-0 Win over Rhode Island
Oct. 4, 2000
Sophomore Christy Zider and junior Gina Dinan each netted two goals and senior co-captain Nichole Bukowski added her first of the season to lead the Boston College field hockey team over Rhode Island, 5-0.
The Eagles tallied the only goal they would need on the afternoon when Zider scored on a breakaway to give Boston College a 1-0 lead at the 17:43 mark. Bukowski added her first of the season with 2:26 left in the first half to give the visiting Eagles a 2-0 lead at the break.
Dinan scored her pair in the second half, first with 23:00 remaining on a feed from freshman Margaret O'Neill and then again with 10:37 left from Bukowski, to put Boston College up 4-0. Zider rounded out the scoring, putting in a pass from Dinan with just 1:25 left to play.
Senior keeper Jill Dedman made two saves in the win for her fourth shutout of the season. Amanda Heryla and Danielle Dangoia combined to make four saves in the loss for the Rams.
Boston College improved to 8-4 with the win. They will next face ninth-ranked Connecticut on Wednesday, Oct. 11, in Chestnut Hill at 7 p.m. in a BIG EAST Conference match. Rhode Island falls to 3-8 and lost its seventh game in a row.
