GAME SUMMARY

Iacovelli wasted little time getting Becker on the board, netting her first two of the afternoon in the opening eight minutes.

Iacovelli opened the scoring with some creative stick handling through the Bulldogs defense before giving the Hawks a 2-0 lead on a one-timer from short range.

Sophomore Kylian Kelly (Shrewsbury, Mass.) broke through next for one of her four goals on the day. With time running low in the first quarter, Kelly scored from short range to give Becker a 3-0 lead.

The Hawks would add four goals in the second quarter with two by Iacovelli, one by Kelly, and one by senior Lauren Niemann (Bay Shore, N.Y.) to take a 7-0 lead to the half.

Coming out of the half, Iacovelli and Kelly would split the next four Hawk tallies, giving Iacovelli five goals and Kelly four goals, as the Becker advantage stretched to 11-0.

Senior Jocelyn Lebel (North Grafton, Mass.) found the scoresheet early in the fourth quarter and Iacovelli rounded out the scoring in the 13-0 victory.
