WENHAM, Mass. – The MIT field hockey team traveled to Gordon College on Wednesday night and came away with a 5-0 non-conference victory at the Brigham Athletic Complex. Kimberly Barker led the way with a pair of tallies as the Engineers moved to 5-1 on the season. Gordon falls to 0-5 with the loss.

Jessica Oleinik got MIT on the board in the ninth minute when she beat Scots goalkeeper Anna Bury from close range. Barker added two unassisted goals before halftime to give MIT a 3-0 lead at the break. MIT outshot Gordon 10-0 in the first half.

In the second half, Kameron Klauber scored on a penalty stroke and Danielle Smith rounded out the scoring with a marker in the 68th minute. Tech held Gordon to just three shots all night, only one of which came on goal, as Keri Dixon and freshman Casey Landry combined for the shutout. Bury posted 9 saves for the Fighting Scots.
