After Monday's win over Cornell, Courtney Murphy said she was ready for her chase for the NCAA career goals record to be over with. She didn't have to wait long Thursday. Murphy's third goal of the game with 21:50 left in the first half gave the Shirley native the Division I record of 290, passing Temple's Gail Cummings (1985-88). Murphy finished with five goals and two assists as the top-ranked Seawolves (11-0, 3-0 America East) went on to a 21-3 victory over Hartford.
