O'Reilly scored for the second time this season, and for the fifth time in her career, to help the field hockey team defeat Connecticut College on the road by a score of 3-1 Saturday afternoon.

She scored in the 32nd minute as part of a fast start for the Bobcats against the Camels, banging in a short pass across the goal from junior inner Emma Patterson for the 3-0 lead.

The goal also marks the first of O'Reilly's career in NESCAC play. 

Bates (4-5, 2-4 NESCAC) snapped a two-game skid in conference play with the victory.

Bates will next play host to No. 2 nationally ranked Babson in a non-conference game Tuesday at 5pm.
