Linnea Quist Box Score

Dedham, Mass. - September 28, 2013- Linnea Quist (New Preston, Conn.) scored twice to lead the Springfield College field hockey team on Saturday, but the Pride fell 5-2 to host Babson.

Babson took a 1-0 lead 11:56 into the game on a goal by Caroline Malone, but Quist tied it up before the first half ended.

Quist tallied her second goal of the game at 47:58, bringing the Pride within a goal. Springfield took several shots and Quist finally found the back of the net off a rebound.

Babson's Morgan Lockwood put the game out of reach with back-to-back goals at 55:54 and 57:04. Those were her seventh and eighth goals of the season. Victoria Spofford earned an assist on Babson's fifth goal, passing to Lockwood from the center of the field, into the circle.
