New Hampshire field hockey blanks Vermont, 3-0

DURHAM, N.H. - Katie White (Glens Falls, N.Y.) scored two goals and Jen Stamp (Tyngsboro, Mass.) had a goal and an assist to lead the University of New Hampshire field hockey team to Saturday afternoon's 3-0 America East victory against the University of Vermont at Post Field.

UNH won its fourth consecutive game to improve to 8-8 overall and remain atop the America East standings at 3-0. Vermont is now 1-15 and 0-3 in league play.

White, who has nine goals in the past four games, gave the Wildcats a 1-0 lead at 13:06 when she corralled a long pass from Brittany Schneider (Middletown, Md.) and beat UVM goalkeeper Ariel Eber from a tough angle. It was White's second game-wining goal in as many games and fourth of the season.

New Hampshire took that one-goal advantage into halftime and Stamp, with the assistance of MacKenzie Stuart (Washington Depot, Conn.), increased the lead to 2-0 at 54:02. Stamp set up White's tally with 7:43 remaining to close the scoring.

UNH's goalkeeping tandem of Chrsitine Buckley (Walpole, Mass.) and Julie Munson (Dover, N.H.) combined for the team's second shutout of the season. Buckley played the initial 61:59 of the game and was credited with three saves. Munson played the final 8:01 and stopped one shot. UVM's Eber made five saves.
