Alie Zimmer debuts in style for Cal field hockey

Freshman forward Alie Zimmer didn't wait long to make a big impact for the Cal women's field hockey team.

In Friday's 2-1 overtime win against Fairfield at Stanford, which was broadcast on Pac-12 Networks, Zimmer scored both of her team's goals. After punching through a rebound from close range in the second half to knot the score at 1-1, Zimmer ran free on a breakaway before using some fancy one-on-one work to beat Fairfield goalie Caitlin Bennett less than three minutes into overtime.

If the season opener was any indication, Zimmer will be one to watch for Cal going forward.
