The College Report: Berkeley Heights Duo Score Winning Goals in Field Hockey

Is it the last that shall be first? In the case of last Saturday’s game between Stevens Tech and Nazareth in Hoboken, that really didn’t matter because Megan Traub (Berkeley Heights, Jr.) was both first and last. She scored the game’s first goal in the 24th minute and then notched the final – and winning – tally with less than two minutes left to play in regulation to lift the Ducks to a 4-3 triumph. The Gov. Livingston alum scored both goals from the top of the circle off penalty corners. Traub, who has seen action in only four games this season for Stevens (7-5), has scored three goals.

Stephanie Soares (Berkeley Heights, Jr.) found herself packed in a scrum in front of the goal early in Tuesday’s contest with FDU-Florham in Madison, but she was able to get her stick on the ball and nudge it into the goal for the only score in a 1-0 Kean victory. Soares, who prepped at Gov. Livingston High, has a team-high six goals for the Cougars (5-7) thus far this season.

Chelsea Davies (Madison, Jr.) scored her sixth goal of the season to lead Richmond past William & Mary, 2-1, at home last Sunday. The Madison High grad notched an unassisted goal in the 24th minute with the score tied at 1. The Spiders are now 6-4.

Julia Conroy (Westfield, Sr.) tallied two goals – her 10th and 11th of the season – as Ithaca blanked Brockport State, 4-0, in a Tuesday home game. Her goals came in the first 20 minutes. The Bombers improved to 6-5.

For a brief spell, Tayler Siegrist (Madison, Sr.) was looking like the heroine, having scored on a direct shot off a corner to help Bucknell knot the score at 3 and force overtime in last Sunday’s contest with Rutgers in Piscataway. But the Scarlet Knights answered with the winning goal less than two minutes into the extra period for a 4-3 win. Siegrist, a Madison High product, has seven goals this season. The Bison dropped to 6-6.

Franklin & Marshall is running a 4-game string of shutouts and Avery Koep (Madison, Jr.) has been in goal for three of those wins. She guarded the net in Wednesday’s 2-0 home win over Johns Hopkins, recording two saves. The Diplomats are now 9-1 overall and 5-0 in the Centennial Conference.

MIT’s Molly Duffy (New Providence, Jr.) scored the game’s first goal in Saturday’s 3-1 home win over Worcester Poly. That was her 12th tally of the season. The Oak Knoll grad then picked up an assist in Tuesday’s 4-1 road win at Wellesley. MIT is humming at 10-2.

Madison Finn (Short Hills, Fr.) set up William Smith’s second goal in a 3-0 victory over Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. last Saturday. The Herons ticked up to 8-1.


Colgate’s Evan Heroux (Westfield, Soph.) scored his first goals of the season in the Red Raiders’ two most recent games, both wins, 5-0 over Lehigh and 2-1 over Hartwick. The Westfield High grad scored the match winner in the Hartwick tilt when he headed in a long ball over the keeper, who was coming at him. Colgate improved to 3-4-4 with the victories.

Conor Starr (Summit, Sr.) booted home a pair of goals and assisted on a third to lead Washington & Lee to a 4-0 triumph over Shenandoah. The Generals are now 7-3 overall and 4-1 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.

Nick Cerrone (Summit, Soph.) made nine saves in goal to enable Johns Hopkins to defeat Franklin & Marshall, 1-0, in Baltimore last Saturday. The Blue Jays are now 4-4-1.

Kean’s Jacob Krygowski (New Providence, Fr.) scored his first collegiate goal when he put the ball into the net with three minutes left to play in last Saturday’s match with Ramapo, won by Kean, 3-0. That leaves the Cougars 7-4 on the season and 3-2 against New Jersey Athletic Conference foes.

Matt Fechter (Westfield, Sr.) earned an assist on the goal that enabled Colorado College to defeat Elmhurst, 1-0, at home last Sunday. The Tigers are now 8-3-0.


Annie Weichert (Chatham, Sr.) made three saves in goal to help Dickinson defeat McDaniel, 3-0, in Westminster, Md. on Wednesday. The Devils are now 6-4 overall and 2-2 in the Centennial Conference.

Samantha Panzner (Livingston, Jr.) scored a goal and picked up an assist as Marist defeated Niagara, 3-1, last Sunday on the road. She put the Red Foxes (8-5-0) on the board when her boot from 23 yards out to the right corner hit the post and bounced in. That was her second tally of the season.
