WALTHAM, Mass. -- Brandeis University pushed past Wellesley College soccer, 5-0, in a non-conference matchup on Tuesday evening at Gordon Field.
Five different players found the net on the night for the Judges, as Brandeis improved to 6-2-0 overall. The Blue are now 3-5-0 on the season.
Sophomore Makenna Hunt (Tyngsborough, Mass.) netted the first Brandeis goal on a feed from first year Caroline Swan (Pittsburgh, Pa.) at 34:10 of the first. The Judges took a 1-0 lead into the half but broke the game open early in the second half with a pair of goals 3:08 apart.
