– Jennifer Crane, Valentina Godfrid and Ashley Glosz each scored two goals to propel the University of California field hockey team to Sunday afternoon’s 6-1 non-conference victory against the University of New Hampshire at Maxwell Field.
    Cal improved to 4-1 with the victory while UNH fell to 0-3.
    All three of the Bears’ goal scorers struck once in each half. Crane, with the assistance of Christina McGrath, gave Cal a 1-0 lead at 12:16. Godfrid factored in the next two tallies as she set up Glosz’s strike at 30:07 and scored on a penalty stroke at 32:49. The home team extended its lead to 4-0 early in the second half when Glosz, off a pass from Crane, scored at 37:03.
    UNH, which had been shut out in each of its first two games, trimmed the deficit to 4-1 at 40:18 on the first career goal by redshirt freshman Sophie Ostroski (Intervale, N.H.). Michelle Tavener (Winchester, Mass.), the Wildcats’ fourth-leading returning scorer from last season, was credited with an assist.
    Crane struck again at 47:14 to reestablish a four-goal advantage and Godrid capped the scoring.
    UNH goalkeeper Margaux Shute (Norridgewock, Maine) recorded four of her six saves in the first half. Cal goalie Veronica Sykes was credited with one save.
    New Hampshire returns to action next weekend with games against Davidson (Sept. 9; 1:30 pm) and Miami, Ohio (Sept. 10; 3 pm) at the University of Vermont. The next Wildcats’ home game is Sept. 15 vs. Harvard. Game time at Memorial Field is 7 p.m.
