Quirine Comans Carries Syracuse Field Hockey to a 6-2 Win Over Columbia
By Skyler Wilkes | @swilkes04
About five and a half minutes into the fourth quarter, Quirine Comans received a pass, turned, then fired, scoring her third goal of the game. The grad student’s first career hat trick helped guide Syracuse to a 6-2 win over Columbia in its home opener. SU head coach Ange Bradley said that it was Comans’ positioning that helped her reach this milestone.
“I think that Q is just finding her rhythm and um, being able to create goal-scoring chances. She’s moving the ball which then puts her in position to get the next, um, the next pass which was really nice to see”
Comans: “I think this year we have a lot like, attacking players and people that can give me the ball at the spaces I want to. I don’t really know…it’s just like I think I’m in the right spot at the right time. I’ve been practicing and…it’s been working out so far.”
Comans has now scored five times in the last two games, leading the team with six on the season. SU improves to 4-0, outscoring its opponents 22-2 over that stretch. Syracuse is back on the road next week, facing another Ivy League foe in Princeton. Game time is set for 4 p.m. on Friday.
