Kannan Extends Perfect Scoring Streak to 20 Games

PASADENA, Calif. (Apr. 13, 2016) – Senior Soumya Kannan (Palo Alto, Calif. / Henry M Gunn) extended her perfect scoring streak with two goals in her 20th game of the season against Division III No. 8 Occidental College on Wednesday afternoon.

Freshman Brittany Percin (Moraga, Calif. / Stanford Online) followed a pair of early Oxy tallies after a scoreless first two minutes with the Beavers' first of the game.  Kannan notched her first in the second quarter as the Tigers took an 8-2 lead at halftime.  Each would net again in the fourth quarter, with Kannan's coming on a penalty shot that she powered through the outstretched fingertips of the Oxy goalie before the Tigers left with the 16-4 victory.

Kannan added two assists and three steals while freshman Katie Johnston (Livermore, Calif. / Livermore) drew three exclusions.

Head Coach Jon Bonafede and the Beavers host DIII No. 4 Chapman University (8-18, 3-4) on Saturday, Apr. 16 at 11 a.m.  The squad will also be celebrating Senior Day as it bids farewell to the senior trio of Kannan, Alexandra Ilic (Austin, Texas / Westlake) and Stephanie Wong (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif. / Palos Verdes Peninsula).
