Zanolli scores twice to help Stanford women earn a victory

Corinne Zanolli scored twice and added an assist, the defense turned in another stellar performance and the 12th-ranked Stanford field hockey team beat host Maine, 4-1, in an America East Conference contest Sunday.

Stanford (7-2, 3-0) plays a little closer to home next week, making the relative short trip to Davis for a neutral site match with Ohio State at noon Saturday.

Zanolli got the Cardinal on the scoreboard within the first two minutes. She cranked a ball that Kristina Bassi redirected for the goal that gave Stanford a lead it never relinquished.

Zanolli struck again in the 14th minute, with Millie Stefanowicz grabbing her first of two assists on the day with a ball passed through the top of the circle that Zanolli finished to make it 2-0.

Maine cut the lead in half in the 15th minute as a penalty corner caused the Cardinal trouble again with Samantha Wagg putting a shot into the bottom right corner of the cage.

The Cardinal controlled the second half as well, dominating in time of possession and defense. Stefanowicz and Zanolli tagged-team again in the 53rd minute as Zanolli finished a pass through the middle to make it 3-1.

Sarah Johnson finished the scoring with her first career goal in the 59th minute. A penalty corner shot rebounded to Johnson, who fired it into the bottom left of the cage.
