MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Earlham field hockey spread the scoring around evenly as four different players each found the back of the cage once in a 4-0 win over Hendrix College, during Saturday action at the Rhodes College Invitational.

The Quakers got on the board at the 27:34 mark of the first half when first year Olivia Layne scored her first collegiate goal.

Earlham padded its lead 11 minutes into the second half, when freshman Isabelle Bishop scored off an assist from Denise Bergdolt. The Quakers struck again a little over a minute later, when Bergdolt stretched the Earlham lead to 3-0 off a pass from Maite Turlings.

The Quakers capped the scoring with 10:46 remaining in the game when Georgia Wade put Earlham up 4-0 off an assist from Turlings.

Earlham outshot Hendrix, 23-2, and enjoyed a 7-6 advantage in penalty corners. Quaker goalie Camille van der Vaart was not challenged to make a save over her 70 minutes in goal, while Hendrix goalie Alexis Truitt charted eight stops.

The Maroon and White complete play in the Rhodes Invitational on Sunday, Sept. 2, when they face the host squad from Rhodes College at 12:00 p.m.
