NEW LONDON, Conn.—Rachel Terveer (London, Ohio) scored a goal in each half to lead the Tufts University field hockey team to a 4-1 victory at Connecticut College Saturday.
The seventh ranked Jumbos improved to 8-2 with a 4-2 record in the NESCAC, while the Camels fell to 4-6 with a 1-5 mark in conference play.
Mary Travers (Princeton, N.J.) and Dakota Sikes-Kelip (Monclair, N.J.) chipped in with scores for the visitors.
Bri Keenan (Greenland, N.H.) recorded five saves for Tufts.
Connecticut College rookie midfielder Meghan Lembo (Southington, Conn.) supplied a second half score for the Camels. Jill Dahrooge (Charlton, Mass.) assisted on the tally.
The Camels kept the game close in the first stanza, trailing by just a goal at the intermission.
But Terveer added an important insurance goal when she re-directed a ball into the back of the cage in the 58th minute of play.
Tufts held an 8-to-1 edge on corners in the triumph and had a 13-to-7 advantage in shots.
Ryley van der Velde (Louisville, Ky.) made seven saves for the hosts.
