MANCHESTER, N.H. – Second-quarter goals from senior Michelle Lemelin (Chelsea, Maine) and sophomore Carly LaCasse (Sagamore Beach, Mass.) scored about three minutes apart in the second quarter and Saint Anselm College went on to a 5-0 win over Bentley University in Northeast-10 Conference field hockey Wednesday night at Grappone Stadium.

The home team, which outshot Bentley 17-3, broke the game open with third-quarter goals from senior Hannah Friend (North Easton, Mass.), junior Ericka Meissner (Falmouth, Mass.) and senior Emma Bartle (Acton, Mass.), the last two only 64 seconds apart.
