Field hockey: Orange romps over Miami

Lauren Brooks' two goals lead balanced attack in 5-1 victory.

No. 5 Syracuse remained undefeated on the young 2014 season with a dominant 5-1 win over Miami (Ohio) in Columbus on Saturday.

"Our kids played with a lot of maturity today," Orange head coach Ange Bradley told SU Athletics. "Our offense still has to get better, but we're creating goal-scoring chances."

The Orange (2-0) was led by senior Lauren Brooks, who had two goals on the day. Brooks opened the scoring in the 17th minute with her first tally of the season.

SU pelted the RedHawks (0-1) with 17 shots in the first half, two of which resulted in goals.

The Orange eventually broke the game open with a three-goal spurt in the second half. Jordan Page, Lies Lagerweij and Brooks all scored to build a five-goal advantage.

Miami freshman Cooper Hudspeth scored the lone RedHawk goal in the 68th minute. 

The Orange will continue its road trip through Ohio on Monday against Ohio University at 1 p.m.
