Field hockey dominates Wooster

The Ladies (3-1) defeated the College of Wooster (3-0) at their home opener last night. While both teams were held scoreless through the first half, the Ladies roared to life offensively at the end of the game, scoring three goals in the last 20 minutes to claim their third victory of the season. Weezie Foster ’18 scored the Ladies’ first goal 55 minutes into the game, and Maddie Breschi ’16 scored six minutes later off an assist from Hannah Drake ’16; the goal was Breschi’s fourth of the season.  “We are looking forward to working hard the rest of this week  to win our game on Saturday,” Breschi ‘16 said on Wednesday night.

  Wednesday night’s victory capped off a week in which the Ladies went 2-1. Last Friday, the Ladies traveled to Baltimore and defeated the Johns Hopkins University Blue Jays 4-3.  Breschi scored twice to lead the Ladies to the team’s first-ever victory over the Blue Jays. Shannon Hart ’18 and Abbey Roswell ’19 scored the team’s two other goals.

    On Saturday in York, Pa., the Ladies took their first loss of the season, falling 1-0 to the York College Spartans. While the Ladies played well defensively against a high-powered Spartan offense that scored nine goals in their preceding two games, they were unable to generate any momentum offensively and were handed a disappointing loss. 

   On Saturday, the Ladies continue their homestand and host Centre College of Danville, Ky.
