Ladies field hockey began their season with two impressive wins this past weekend in Danville, Ky. against Centre College and Sewanee: The University of the South. On Saturday, Kenyon defeated Centre 1-0 with a goal by Rachel Hall ’15, assisted by Co-Captain Julie Freedman ’15, in the second half. Centre could not get any shots past first-year goalkeeper Sarah Speroff ’18 .

“Our defense really held their own and we definitely dominated our game against Centre,” Hall said. 

The next day, the Ladies defeated Sewanee  3-2. In the first five minutes of the game, Sewanee managed to score, but Kenyon retaliated with a goal by Co-Captain Maddie Breschi ’16, assisted by Hall. Fifteen minutes into the second half, Sewanee scored to retake the lead, but shortly after, Kenyon tied the score 2-2 with a goal by Christine Bloom ’16 assisted, by Freedman. Kenyon finally took the lead with two-and-a-half minutes remaining, as Cecilia Depman ’15 scored the winning goal with an assist from Breschi.

“We have a lot of new players this season which is really exciting,” Hall said. “We worked really hard throughout preseason and have bonded greatly already. This weekend we worked really well together.”

Hall added, “I think we have so much potential and I am really excited to see us succeed and remain a force in the conference this year.” With two wins under their belt, the Kenyon field hockey team will take on Washington College and compete in the Consolation/Championship Games in Frostburg, Md. next weekend.
