Hoyas' Corboz ties Big East record with five goals
October 1st, 2012 2:30AM

TAGS:  college women


[PITTSBURGH-GEORGETOWN] Sophomore Daphne Corboz scored five goals -- including two in the first three minutes -- as No. 11 Georgetown crushed Pittsburgh, 8-0, to improve to 11-1-1 and 5-0-0 in the Big East.

Corboz's five goals tied the all-time Big East individual record for goals in a game, last set by UConn’s Ginny Woodward, who scored five goals against Providence in 1996. She also added an assist to give her 11 points and set a new Big East record with 11 points, eclipsing the mark of 10 points in a game, held by three different players.
Junior Kaitlin Brenn added two goals and had two assist.
“It was hard for Pittsburgh since they played on Friday, had a tough loss and we didn’t,” Hoya coach Dave Nolan said. “They’ve had some tough weekends and us coming in fresh didn’t make their job any easier.  They’re a decent team but we got out on them quickly and once you do that against a team that’s tired, it’s deflating."
“Our kids were buzzing, but once we got up 2-0, we started to play really well. The first two goals were great goals. Daphne had a great finish on the first and Kaitlin (Brenn) scored a great reaction goal off a corner and that got us going.”

The Hoya are one of three teams that are now 5-0-0 in the Big East.
