Schulmann had a hand in all four UConn goals on Sunday, scoring three and assisting on the other to lead the Huskies to a 4-1 win over Central Connecticut. On Wednesday, the Saddle River, NJ native had a goal and two assists against Marist.
In Wednesday's 3-1 win over Marist, Schulman opened UConn's scoring in the 21st minute, shooting the ball from close range on the right side of the box after snagging a deflected pass to give the Huskies a 1-0 advantage.
It didn’t take long for Schulmann to create another scoring opportunity for Connecticut as she chipped the ball over Marist defenders up field to a waiting Riley Houle, who rifled the ball by Marist keeper Andrea Wicks to push the UConn lead to 2-0 in the 23rd minute. She also assisted on Stephanie Ribeiro's coal in the 77th minute.
Sunday's performance was spectacular.
Schulmann scored her first goal of the game in the seventh minute, drawing CCSU keeper Nikola Dieter out and sailing the ball into the open net.
Connecticut’s second goal came in the 11th minute, when Schulmann crossed the ball from the right side and junior midfielder Jennifer Skogerboe headed it into the left corner of the net.
Schulmann, registering a point in her third consecutive game, added two more goals in the second half to set the final score at 4-1. Her third goal came in the 64th minute, with freshmen Stephanie Ribeiro registering her third assist of the year. The final goal, in the 77th minute, was unassisted when Schulmann grabbed a deflected ball and drilled it into the goal.
