Less than four minutes later, Ali Clarke ’17 picked up her team-leading fifth goal of the fall with Kreider setting up the score with her Hamilton-best fifth assist.
Rees completed her second two-goal game in the past eight days with a goal in the 14th minute. Clarke recorded her third assist.
Katie McKillop ’19 scored her first collegiate goal six minutes into the second half before Kreider closed out the scoring with two goals. Katja Dunlap ’18 and Rees assisted on the goals by Kreider, who notched two goals for the second consecutive Sunday.
Rachel Cooley ’18 and Emily Dumont ’18 each played a half to share the shutout. Dumont made a pair of saves in the second period.
Annaliese Schmidt relieved starting goalkeeper Molly McDonough in the 17th minute and finished with 10 saves for Plymouth State (5-6-0 overall).
