LAWRENCEVILLE--The Rider University field hockey team snapped a two-game losing streak with an 8-0, non-conference win on Sunday at Ben Cohen Field in Lawrenceville.

"This is exactly what we needed after our last two games," said head coach Lori Hussong.  "Even though I like how we battled against Lafayette last week, we were a little shaken in our confidence as far as scoring.  It was good to see the compliment of players that were ready to score."

For Rider (7-3), junior Sandra Penas (Barcelona, Spain) had a hat trick (three goals) with senior Marlaine Schneider (Feasterville, Pa./Neshaminy) scoring twice in the win.

Penas also assisted on Schneider's first goal and her seven point day gives her 105 career points, seventh most ever at Rider.

"I think we had a really good game," Penas said.  "We played strong and played together."

The goals by Schneider were the 30th and 31st of her career and her 93 points are 10th best all-time at Rider.

"The team rally's around their play," Hussong said about Penas and Schneider.  "They really gave us a lift, scoring early and getting us on the board."

"I've continued to do what I've always done," said Schneider about her role changing since the graduation of career leading scorer Virginia Egusquiza.  "Maybe I've had to work a little harder.  The two losses were difficult in the past week but we bounced back as a team today."

Schneider got the Broncs on the board 12:40 into the game and Penas scored on a breakaway, just under eight minutes later to give Rider a 2-0 lead.  Schneider scored again at 21:03 and Penas added her second of the day on a backhanded shot, just 22 seconds later for a 4-0 Bronc lead.

Freshman Rachel Ippolite (Woolwich Twp./Kingsway Regional) scored off a corner play, just 1:25 before the half and Rider led 5-0 at intermission.

Senior Gabby Burgo (Collingswood) gave senior Jackie Adams (Medford Lakes/Shawnee) a through ball with Adams scoring her first of the season at 42:07.

Penas scored her team-leading ninth of the year on a back handed shot with 24 minutes left and sophomore Eefje Kok (Berkel Enschot, Netherlands) completed the scoring 13 seconds later with her second goal of the season.

Rookie goalies Alicia Carthan (Bordentown) and Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark's) split the game in the net for Rider with Carthan picking up her fifth win of the season.  Prettyman made both of the Bronc saves as Rider out-shot the Mountain Hawks 30-5.

Rider held a 13-5 penalty corner advantage.

Rider defeated Lehigh 6-1 last year in Bethlehem. 

The game was played before over 300 fans including over 50 alumni.

"It was great to see all of the alumni," Hussong added.  "They have been great supporters of the program and I'm proud that we gave them a good game to see."

The Broncs have won 17 of the 34 games (1 tie) in the series against the Mountain Hawks, including the last three (2011, 2009, 2008).

The Broncs last scored eight goals in an 8-0 Northeast Conference win at Siena on October 7, 2011.

Rider plays its next four games on the road, starting with Columbia Wednesday before opening NEC play at Robert Morris on October 7.

"I hope we are ready for conference play," said Hussong.  "Every NEC game is going to be tough and the game at Columbia is going to be a challenge as well."
