NASHUA, N.H. – Salve Regina University posted three goals in each half on the way to a 6-1 victory over host Daniel Webster in a regional field hockey matchup Tuesday at Harvey Woods Field.

Lisa Bucci (Irvington, N.Y.) posted a pair of scores while four other Seahawks notched single tallies as Salve (3-4) halted a four-game slide.

Sophomore Courtney Brennan (Beverly, Mass.) netted her third goal of the season for the Eagles (1-4), putting DWC on the board with just over 10 minutes remaining in the second half.

Emma St. Laurent (Seekonk, Mass.), Alexandria Rizzo (Hopedale, Mass.), and Bucci netted first half scores for a 3-0 lead at the break.

The Seahawks stretched the advantage to 5-0 in the second behind scores from Chelsea Smith (Getzville, N.Y.) and Alexandria Bierce (Roxbury, Conn.) before Brennan broke the shutout bid, converting a Shelby Mortin (N. Kingstown, R.I.) pass during a scramble in front.

Salve Regina finished with a 20-10 total shots advantage including 15-7 on goal.

Senior Amy Prince (Hope Valley, R.I.) made nine saves for DWC. Murphy McCann (Westerly, R.I.) made two first half saves for the Seahawks, while Jaclene Fleming (Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.) stopped four second half shots from the Eagles.

DWC returns to action next Wednesday visiting Colby-Sawyer College while Salve Regina visits the University of New England on Saturday in a CCC game starting at 5:00 p.m.
