Couch Moves into D3 All-Time Leaders on Senior Day; Locklear Sets Scoring Mark

FREDERICK, Md. - Hood College's Lauren Couch (Crownsville, Md. / Old Mill) moved into Division III's all-time saves leaders in her final collegiate game, but the Blazers fell 20-10 to visiting Arcadia in Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth play.

Couch's final save of the day was her 788th of her career, tying her for 20th all-time in Division III. Hood's only senior, she was honored during a Senior Day ceremony at halftime for her contributions to the program. 

She was not the only Blazer with a day to remember, however. Jade Locklear (Baltimore, Md. / Chesapeake) scored six goals and had 11 draw controls in the contest, giving her 45 goals, 55 points and 84 draw controls on the season. All three totals broke single season Hood College records. She eclipsed Kelsey Blackwell's record of 54 points in 2009, Caitlin Lawrence's 43 goals from 2012 and Annie Lavery's 79 draw controls in 2004. 

The Blazers kept pace with the Knights early. Locklear scored less than a minute into the action for a 1-0 lead. After Dawn Faranetta scored with 27:48 left in the half, Christina Murphy (Denville, N.J. / Morris Knolls) scored to put Hood back on top a minute later. Faranetta again tied the score, but Anne Lessard's (Natick, Mass. / Natick) goal with 24:59 on the clock gave Hood a 3-2 lead. 

The Knights scored back-to-back goals to take the lead, but Hood would tie the game on three occasions. Locklear knotted the game at 4-4 with 20:02 left on a free position shot; Shay Braithwaite (Montgomery Village, Md. / Watkins Mill) tied it at 5-5 with 18:42 to go with a free position goal; and Locklear scored her third of the half to make it 6-6 with 17:16 remaining. Arcadia, however, scored the final six goals of the half to pull away. 

Locklear scored three of Hood's four second half goals, but a five-goal run by the Knights to open the half put the game out of reach. 

Faranetta scored seven goals and added an assist. Jessica Santoli had six ground balls. Jordyn Dunacusky made five saves.
