Kaitlyn Struss scored two goals and moved into third place on the Red Hawks field hockey all-time scoring list as Montclair State beat Misericordia University 4-0 at Sprague Field on Sept. 10.
Struss netted both goals in a span of 10 minutes during the second half.

As the Red Hawks continued to dominate, Haslett scored off a rebound on the right side of the goal before the end of the first half. The sophomore now leads the team with eight goals this season.
The Misericordia Cougars sent only one shot on goal during the entire outing at Sprague Field, ending the night out-shot by the Red Hawks 25-1. The Cougars dipped to a record of 1-4 while Montclair State advanced to 5-0.
