    • SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Field Hockey Outlasted by Kent State, 2-1, in NCAA Play-In Game

       

      DATE:  November 12, 2014

       

      NEWARK, Del. – NCAA Tournament action returned to Fred P. Rullo Stadium Wednesday afternoon, but the outcome was not what the University of Delaware field hockey team hoped for as the Blue Hens fell to Kent State, 2-1, in one of three NCAA play-In games.

       

      Hannah Faulkner, one of the nation’s top scorers, put the Golden Flashes (11-10) ahead in the 12th minute after receiving a pass from Julia Hofmann.

       

      UD responded 11 minutes later as redshirt sophomore Maddie O’Beirne (Vienna, Va./George C. Marshall) notched her second goal of the season. Sophomore Marjelle Scheffers (Amersfoort, The Netherlands/Stedelijk Gymnasium Johan van Oldenbarnevelt) assisted on the play.

       

      Kent State closed out the first half with a penalty corner goal in the 31st minute. Ines Delpech scored the game-winner off assists from Hofmann and Alayna Harris for what proved to be the game-winner. 

       

      The Blue Hens outshot the Golden Flashes, 13-9, but Kent State goalie Andrea Rinehart registered eight saves for the win.

       

      Delaware’s freshman goalkeeper Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) collected three saves in the loss.

       

      The back-to-back Colonial Athletic Association Blue Hens finish their season with a mark of 13-9 while the Golden Flashes advance to face reigning national champion UConn Saturday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Saturday in Storrs, Conn. 

       

      POST-GAME QUOTES

      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof

      “We had some difficulties adjusting to their style of play and our biggest challenge was playing our own game. We didn’t execute our game plan. Our season has now come to an end and this game is not a good representation of who we are  We did an amazing job this season with young players.”

       

      Redshirt Sophomore Maddie O’Beirne

      “It felt good to get the goal as I haven’t scored in awhile and it is exciting to score in such an important game. It’s tough though because we had a different outcome in our minds. This loss will propel us to work harder in the off-season. Kent State is a force to be reckoned with and they have a different style of play. It took us time to adjust to their game plan and we just adjusted too late. Everyone gave it their all and in the end, that’s all you can ask for.”

      INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Fresh off its second consecutive Colonial Athletic Association title, the University of Delaware field hockey team learned on the bus ride home it will host Kent State University in a NCAA Play-In Game Wednesday at Fred P. Rullo Stadium.

       

      Game time has yet to be determined and is expected to be announced late Monday morning.

       

      “What a neat experience to watch the NCAA Selection Show together on the bus coming home from winning the CAA,” remarked Delaware’s fourth-year head coach Rolf van de Kerkhof.  “We are very excited to return to our home turf and welcome Kent State to Rullo Stadium. It’s now up to us to prepare for our next game as we have prepared for every ‘next game’ throughout the season.”

       

      The Blue Hens (13-8) advanced to NCAA Tournament play after defeating James Madison, 2-1, earlier today in the CAA Championship final.

       

      Kent State is 10-10 on the year and coming off a 2-0 victory over Ohio to claim the Mid-American Conference Championship. 

       

      Delaware is 1-0 over the Flashes in series history, with the lone game coming during the 2007 season.

       

      The winner of Wednesday’s game will advance to play third-seeded and reigning NCAA champion Connecticut (16-3) Saturday in Storrs, Conn.

      DATE:  November 3, 2014

       

      RICHMOND, Va. – The field is set for the 2014 Colonial Athletic Association Field Hockey Championship following the completion of regular season play Monday afternoon.

       

      The defending champion University of Delaware (11-8, 4-2 CAA) is seeded second in the four-team tournament and will face third-seeded William & Mary (7-11, 4-2) at 5 p.m. Friday.  Despite a common CAA record, the Blue Hens earned the higher seed based on head-to-head matchup.

       

      Friday’s opening matchup features first-time host and CAA regular season champion Northeastern (14-4, 5-1 CAA) as the first seed. The No. 18 Huskies will square off against fourth-seeded James Madison (11-7, 3-3 CAA) at 2 p.m.

       

      Delaware has defeated all three teams in the tournament, having downed Northeastern 3-2 on Oct. 24, William & Mary 5-3 on Oct. 5, and James Madison 6-5 in double overtime on Oct. 3. 

       

      The CAA Championship title game will take place on Sunday, Nov. 9 at 1 p.m. The team that captures the trophy Sunday will earn an automatic bid into the NCAA Field Hockey Championship.

       

      All contests will take place at Northeastern’s Dedham Field in Dedham, Mass., a suburb just outside of Boston.

       

      CAA.tv will be the online home for live coverage throughout the weekend. For more information on the 2014 CAA Field Hockey Championship, visit CAASports.com.

      DATE:  November 2, 2014
       
      NEWARK, Del. – The University of Delaware field hockey team dominated in all offensive statistical categories Sunday afternoon, but Drexel University came out on top in the 1-0 overtime game to finish regular season play at Fred P. Rullo Stadium. 
       
      The loss stripped the Blue Hens (11-8, 4-2 CAA) from winning the CAA regular season title and the chance at hosting the league’s postseason tournament next weekend.
       
      The Dragons (10-8, 2-4 Colonial Athletic Association) had nothing to lose in the game as their season was over no matter what and went into overtime with that mindset. 
       
      Just 21 seconds into the extra period, Christina Conrad found Chloe Pachuilo for a cross as Pachuilo netted the golden goal into the lower left hand corner of the cage.
       
      The Hens had plenty of opportunities to get on the scoreboard after collecting 10 penalty corners, but were never able to capitalize on the breaks.
       
      Junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) led all players with six shots, four of which were on goal, while sophomore Esmée Peet (Zeewolde, The Netherlands/RSG Slingerbos) tallied four shots, all on goal.
       
      UD freshman Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) was credited with the loss despite making three saves.
       
      Drexel’s Jantien Gunter collected seven saves in the win. Allyson Fuller added two defensive saves while Rebecca Werner also tallied a defensive save for the Dragons.
       
      The Blue Hens now await their postseason ranking and matchup as No. 18 Northeastern and William & Mary fight for the top spot in the CAA with an 11 a.m. game Monday. Inclement weather forced the Huskies and Tribe to postpone their game Sunday.
       
      The CAA Tournament will be held next Friday (Nov. 7) and Sunday (Nov. 9). The winner of the NU/W&M game will serve as host for the postseason tournament.
       
      POST-GAME QUOTES
      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof
      [On loss]: “We were not connecting today the way that we can. We have to find a way in the next two to three days to reconnect with everybody in order to be ready to go for the conference tournament semifinals.”
       
      [On dominating corners]: “Getting corners is one thing, but executing and finishing them is part two. That is the difference between a 3-4 goal win and an overtime loss to a very motivated Drexel team.”
       
      [On upcoming CAA Tournament]: “At the end of the day, today proves that if you take care of business, then your season continues. Otherwise you are done for the year.”

      Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Game

      LAWRENCEVILLE—Led by two goals from sophomore Carlota Alsina (Barcelona, Spain), the Rider University field hockey team defeated Bryant University 3-2 in come from behind fashion on Friday afternoon on Ben Cohen Field.

      “This has been a hard season with the conference being so tight,” said head coach Lori Hussong.  “I am just really proud of our team and their comeback ability.  When they get down, they set tougher and we are really proud of the effort today.”

      With the win, Rider (10-7, 3-1 MAAC) clinched a conference playoff berth for the 15th straight season, all under Hussong and the Broncs improved to 6-1 at home in 2014.

      “We were coming off a painful loss at Sacred Heart last Sunday,” said Alsina.  “Today, we came together and we were really excited about the game.  It’s always more motivating playing at home and we played well together.”

      Alsina scored her fourth goal of the season, dribbling in after receiving a pass from senior Dezarae Fillmyer (Roebling/Florence) on a corner to give the Broncs a 3-2 lead with 21:28 remaining in the game for the final score.  Fillmyer now has four assists on the season and leads the team with 16 points.

      “Carlota created a lot of scoring opportunities for us,” Hussong said.  “When we moved her from the midfield to the front, we needed someone who was going to put the ball in the circle and be dangerous for us.”

      Trailing 2-1, Rider tied the game just 2:11 into the second half when senior Laura McCormick (West Windsor/West Windsor-Plainsboro South) reached through the goalie and tipped a dump in hit from sophomore Kalyn O'Brien (Southampton/Seneca), for her third goal of the season.

      “Laura struggled all season with injuries,” Hussong said.  “She came alive in the second half and moved the ball well.  She created a lot of scoring opportunities.  Any time she gets the ball in the circle, it has a chance to go in.”

      “When we were down it didn’t scare us at all,” said McCormick.  “We knew we had the ability to come right back.”

      “We had possession most of the time,” Alsina said about being down a goal.  “There is always pressure when you are losing but once you tie it up, you get more motivated.”

      Alsina gave Rider a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute, hitting a shot from the top of the circle, with freshman Shannon Hughes (South Plainfield) and Fillmyer picking up the assists on the corner play. 

      Bryant (4-12, 1-3 MAAC) tied the score less than four minutes later on a rebound after a defensive save by senior Stacey Dileo (Fairfield, Conn./Fairfield Warde) and the Bulldogs scored on a penalty stroke, taking a 2-1 lead with 3:58 left in the opening half.

      Dileo now has six defensive saves on the season.

      Bryant led by one at intermission.

      Rider out-shot Bryant 14-10 and the Broncs held a 7-5 penalty corner advantage.

      “Junior Rachel Ippolite (Woolwich Twp./Kingsway Regional) also had an excellent game for us with her passing down the field,” Hussong added.  “It was her best game of the season and it was much needed.”

      Junior goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) made five saves to pick up her ninth win of the season.

      Rider has won seven of 12 games decided by one goal this season.

      Last season, the teams met in Smithfield, Rhode Island with the Bulldogs winning 2-1 in a shootout, the only time in seven tries that Bryant has won over Rider.

      With Quinnipiac defeating first place Sacred Heart 1-0 on Friday, Rider clinched a playoff berth in the four-team conference tournament. 

      Rider will host Siena on Sunday and honor Dileo, Fillmyer and McCormick, prior to the game at 11:45am.

      “This year more than ever, each has stepped up more than ever and they each lead in their own way and they have grown into not only great leaders but great people as well.  It’s nice to see them finish out on top the way they are.”

      “We knew the season would be a challenge,” McCormick said about the youth of the squad and the senior leadership.  “The whole team has stepped up big time.  It’s going to be an emotional day but it will be great as well.”

      With a win on Sunday against the Saints, Rider will earn at least a share of its sixth straight conference regular season title (4 NEC, 2 MAAC) in a row and the Broncs will host the four-team conference tournament November 7-9.

      “It’s a huge goal for us this year to host the conference tournament,” McCormick said.  “We play our best at home.”

      “Sunday is going to be a tough game,” Alsina said.  “We are not only playing for the conference title but for the three seniors as well.”

      “We need to stay focused for Sunday,” Hussong said.  “All of our goals come off hustle and determination.  We need to execute on our corners and play tough defense.  Siena is on the verge of defeating someone.  They have been in all their games and we expect that they will come in and give us stiff competition.”

      DATE:  October 26, 2014
       
      NEWARK, Del. – Hofstra University put the pressure on early and never let up as the University of Delaware field hockey team had its 12-game Colonial Athletic Association winning streak halted Sunday afternoon with a 5-2 loss to the Pride at Fred P. Rullo Stadium.
       
      A win would have clinched the CAA regular season title and home field advantage in the upcoming conference tournament for the reigning champion Blue Hens (10-7, 4-1 CAA).  Now Delaware will need to defeat Drexel in addition to relying on Hofstra to lose to William & Mary and/or James Madison next weekend.
       
      The Pride (12-5, 3-1 CAA) held a 3-0 advantage at halftime before UD redshirt sophomore Maddie O’Beirne (Vienna, Va./George C. Marshall) put the Hens on the board in the 37th minute.
       
      Hofstra senior Janel Boileau and sophomore Stella Schoen paired up three times in the game for goals, including twice in the second half, and gave the Pride the 5-1 lead with just over 15 minutes remaining in regulation.
       
      Delaware appeared to have momentum in the final 10 minutes but would receive just one more goal as junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) put in a penalty stroke to cut the score to 5-2 at 65:15.
       
      Blue Hens freshman Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) collected two saves in the loss while Carys Swan stopped five UD shots for the HU win.
       
      POST-GAME QUOTES
      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof
      “At halftime, I wasn’t worried about the score, but more about our performance. That improved, especially early on in the second half, but then we just have to keep pushing it. We allowed them to get back in it and we put back in the same scenario as the first half. I think after a great game on Friday, we got a bit comfortable with ourselves. We forgot to bring our fight and Hofstra did a great job in exposing us.”
       
      HEN SCRATCHINGS
      ·      With her goal today, junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) continues to lead the team with 26 points on nine goals and eight assists.  She now has 83 career points (32g, 19a) and is just behind Beth Manley (1983-86) in the career record books. Manley is 11th all-time with 84 career points (33g, 18a).
      ·      Redshirt sophomore Maddie O’Beirne (Vienna, Va./George C. Marshall) now has five career goals.
      ·      O’Beirne is the 12th player on the squad to have tallied at least one point this season.
      ·      The Blue Hens had previously won two straight and four of the last five over the Pride. UD is now 22-7 all-time against Hofstra.
      ·      Delaware’s last loss in CAA action came on Nov. 3, 2012 as the Hens lost  to No. 18 Drexel, 2-1, in the conference championship game.

      Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Game

      HAMDEN, Conn.—Over time, you remember the instant classics.  Especially the ones that end with a win in overtime.

      Junior Melyssa Alonso (Toms River/Toms River HS North) broke a 1-1 tie, scoring, 5:41 into the first overtime period as the Rider University field hockey team won in come from behind fashion at Quinnipiac University on Friday afternoon in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game.

      “KK (sophomore Kalyn O'Brien) took the initial shot on the corner,” Alonso remembered.  “I was able to battle through the defense and get to the post and slip it in.  This feels great.  We wanted to win and the team played with a lot of heart.”

      “This was two evenly matched teams just going after each other,” said head coach Lori Hussong.  “To come back on the road, down a goal, late in the game and to keep fighting, this is a testimate to their will, hustle and desire to win.  Everyone gave their all and tried their hardest.”

      Alonso now has three goals on the season, all game-winners, as she hit the back of the cage for the third time in the last four games.

      “Alonso has that winning mentality,” Hussong said about her now offensive defenseman.  “She just keeps giving her all, on both ends of the field.”

      Senior Dezarae Fillmyer (Roebling/Florence) scored her fifth goal of the season, converting a penalty corner with 5:34 left in regulation, tying the game 1-1 with sophomore Melissa Cunningham (Oaklyn/Collingswood) credited with the assist.

      Bobcat senior Danielle Allan broke a scoreless tie with 20 minutes left in the game, converting a rebound after a penalty corner.

      “We kept our head up after we got down a goal,” Alonso added.  “We battled and didn’t want to lose.  It was a tough and physical game and we powered through.”

      “I called my timeout with nine minutes left and told the team to just stay after it,” Hussong said.  “We kept up the pressure and got the game tied.”

      Bronc junior goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) made five saves as Quinnipiac (6-9, 2-1 MAAC) out-shot Rider (9-6, 2-0 MAAC) 14-11.

      “Joelle came out to play for us,” Alonso added.  “She made some great saves and that allowed us to come out on top.”

      “Joelle was outstanding,” said Hussong.  “Quinnipiac kept up the pressure and she kept us in the game.”

      Each team had 10 penalty corners.

      "The play of the defense was exceptional," Hussong added.  "Dez (Fillmyer), Stacey (Dileo) and Alonso and also the play of Carlota (Alsina) in the midfield."

      Rider has won 17 of the 28 meetings all-time against Quinnipiac, dating back to 1998.

      Rider defeated Quinnipiac 2-1 in 2013 on Ben Cohen Field in Lawrenceville on a goal with 3:01 left in the game as the Broncs also rallied from a one-goal deficit in that game.

      Rider and Quinnipiac met during the 2012 regular season with the Bobcats giving Rider its only conference loss of the season, 3-2 in Hamden, Connecticut.  The Broncs gained revenge by defeating the Bobcats 4-1 in the conference semifinals.

      The Broncs have now won two of four overtime games this season and Rider improves to 6-4 in one-goal games, having won five one-goal games in a row.

      “The team has learned to reach inside and find that little extra needed to come through and get it done," Hussong said.  "We've learned how to win as the season has developed and we couldn’t be more proud.  We’ve learned how to play as a team and to never give up.”

      Rider travels to Fairfield, Connecticut on Sunday to face Sacred Heart University at 3pm.

      “Sunday is going to be another battle,” Hussong said.  “Every conference game, especially on the road is 50-50 and we have to guard against a letdown.  All of the teams in the conference are even.”

    • 2 Terps Tame Tigers, 8-1, Behind Fluharty’s Hat Trick

      Maryland wins seventh straight game at Princeton Wednesday

       

      PRINCETON, N.J. – The second-ranked Maryland field hockey team rolled to its seventh straight win Wednesday with an 8-1 rout at Princeton. Senior Maxine Fluharty led the Terrapins’ offense with her second career hat trick.

       

      Senior Welma Luus added two goals, while senior Katie Gerzabek, junior Alyssa Parker and freshman Lein Holsboer also scored. The Terps (12-2, 4-1 B1G) outshot the Tigers (3-9), 28-13. Redshirt senior goalkeeper Brooke Cabrera picked up four saves.

       

      Luus opened the scoring 15 minutes in when she carried the ball into the circle and sent a shot into the lower left corner of the cage. With just over a minute left in the first half, Parker picked the ball up off a turnover in the midfield and brought it into the circle to score. She has scored in three straight games for the Terrapins.

       

      After Maryland led 2-0 at the break, Fluharty made it a three-goal lead less than three minutes into the second half when she scored off a high shot. Luus notched her second goal five minutes later off a rebound on a corner.

       

      The Tigers got on the board in the 49th minute when Cat Caro scored off a backhanded shot from Lexi Quirk. Holsboer added Maryland’s fifth goal in the 53rd minute off a penalty corner. Just over two minutes later, Gerzabek added another score with a backhanded shot into the right corner of the cage. Fluharty added the Terps’ final two goals in the 59th and 63rd minutes off of penalty corners.

       

      Fluharty leads the Terps with 11 goals scored so far this season. Junior Anna Dessoye, who was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Tuesday, leads the team in points with 26 points off of seven goals and 12 assists.

       

      The Terrapins will return home this weekend to host Big Ten opponent Rutgers (6-6, 1-4) Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. Admission and parking are both free.

      Prettyman played all 161:23 and allowed only two goals for the week, compiling a goals against average of 0.87 as Rider went undefeated in two games.

      In a 3-1 win against Colgate on October 10, Prettyman made five saves and at Vermont on October 12, Prettyman made four saves, including stopping a point blank shot during the 7 v 7 overtime right before Rider scored the game-winner in a 2-1 double o.t. victory.

      RICHMOND, Va. – Following two big road victories, University of Delaware sophomore Esmée Peet (Zeewolde, The Netherlands/RSG Slingerbos) was honored Tuesday by the Colonial Athletic Association as its field hockey Co-Player of the Week.
       
      Peet led the Blue Hens Friday in exciting fashion as the midfielder recorded the game-winning goal in double overtime at Princeton. As Delaware (9-5, 3-0 CAA) was on the move, Peet received a perfect pass from junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) and was able to scoop it over the Tiger goalie’s head and into the cage for the 2-1 victory. Peet also recorded an assist against Princeton.
       
      In Sunday’s 2-1 win at Towson, Peet tallied UD’s first goal of the game off a penalty corner. Peet currently leads the Hens with three game-winning goals and 21 points off a team-best nine goals and three assists.
       
      Peet shares Player of the Week honors with William & Mary’s Emma Clifton. Simca Schoen (Hofstra) was named the Rookie of the Week.
       
      Delaware returns home this weekend to host Columbia on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Fred P. Rullo Stadium.  The Blue Hens will welcome back and honor the 2004 CAA Championship squad as a part of Homecoming Weekend.

      PRINCETON, N.J. – For the second time in three games, the University of Delaware field hockey squad needed double overtime to finish an opponent as the Blue Hens defeated Princeton, 2-1, Friday evening at Bedford Field.
       
      Just 41 seconds into the second overtime, junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) dished off a pass to sophomore Esmée Peet (Zeewolde, The Netherlands/RSG Slingerbos), who lifted the ball over the goalie into the cage for the victory.
       
      The Tigers (3-8) got on the board first as Maddie Copeland gave Princeton the 1-0 advantage in the 11th minute.
       
      Delaware (8-5) was held scoreless until the 52nd minute when junior Allie Mikelson (Emmaus, Pa./Emmaus) tipped in a pass from Peet off of a penalty corner to tie things at 1-1.
       
      Princeton had numerous opportunities in the first overtime to close out UD, but Blue Hens freshman goalie Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) collected four saves in the 15-minute period.
       
      In total, Oltmans registered seven saves in her first game back after missing three contests due to a knee injury.
       
      The Blue Hens tallied three defensive saves for the second time this season as sophomore Meghan Winesett (Centreville, Va./Westfield) collected the first two defensive saves of her career and Mikelson added a defensive save of her own for the fifth time this year.
       
      Anya Gersoff was credited with the loss for the Tigers after finishing with seven saves and two goals allowed.
       
      POST-GAME QUOTES
      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof
      “Great goal to win in OT again, but we have to stop putting up inconsistent performances throughout the game and limiting our team development and growth opportunities. The last couple of weeks Delaware field hockey has improved so much and now we have to continue that process. I would like to compliment our goalkeepers, Fran Orella and Emmeline Oltmans, for putting this team in the position to win games in the recent weeks. It is nice to know that we have two outstanding goalkeepers keeping us in the game when called upon.”

      DATE:  October 5, 2014

       

      WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Meghan Winesett (Centreville, Va./Westfield) collected her first career hat trick Sunday afternoon as the sophomore led the University of Delaware field hockey team to a 5-3 Colonial Athletic Association win over William & Mary at Busch Field.

       

      A preseason All-CAA team selection, Winesett doubled her season goal total to six after recording just the third hat trick for the Blue Hens since the 2009 season.

       

      Classmate Esmée Peet (Zeewolde, The Netherlands/RSG Slingerbos) recorded two goals for the second straight game as Delaware improved to 7-5 overall and 2-0 in league play.

       

      The Blue Hens and Tribe (4-8, 1-1 CAA) traded goals through the first 50 minutes of the contest before UD took the lead for good.

      Rutgers Field Hockey falls at No. 14 Michigan

       

      ANN ARBOR, Mich. (September 28, 2014) – The Rutgers field hockey squad battled another ranked foe on the road, but came up just short, falling 2-1 to the No.14 Michigan Wolverines.

       

      “We played really good hockey this weekend,” head coach Meredith Long said. “We executed our game plan from a defensive standpoint really well. We realize that we can compete with some of the top teams in the conference. We need to focus on scoring more goals and trying to establish momentum early in the game.”

       

      Michigan got on the scoreboard first, tallying an early goal 6:03 into the game. After an initial save, the Wolverine’s Carly Bennett knocked home a rebound to give Michigan the lead.

       

      Rutgers would answer 12 minutes later. Putting heavy pressure on the Wolverines net, the Scarlet Knights earned three consecutive penalty corners. They would capitalize on the third corner, as senior captain Sophie Wright (Devizes, United Kingdom) directed the ball into the back of the cage to tie the game. Alyssa Bull (Oakville, Ontario) picked up her second assist of the year on the goal.

       

      Michigan went back on top 13 minutes into the second half. The Wolverines had a 2-on-1 chance in front of the net and Eliza Stein scored to put the Maize and Blue ahead 2-1.

       

      The Scarlet Knights pressed late in the game to try and equalize the score, but were unable to find the tying goal. Their best chance in the second half came off a penalty corner with just two minutes left, but the shot from senior captain Jenn Staab (Marmora, N.J.) sailed just high.

       

      Michigan held the advantage with seven shots on goal to Rutgers’ five, while penalty corners were even at 7-7. Shevaun Hayes (Melbourne, Australia) made five saves but fell to 4-5 on the year.

       

      Rutgers returns home next weekend for two home games. The Scarlet Knights will host Big Ten Conference foe Michigan State at 3 p.m. Friday before welcoming New Hampshire at 1 p.m. Sunday.

       

      Game Notes

      -           Wright’s goal snapped a 215:27 scoreless streak for RU stretching back to Sofia Walia’s (Surrey, British Columbia) goal at Virginia.

      -           Hayes made at least five saves for the seventh time this season. She currently holds a 2.54 goals against average and .707 save percentage.

      DATE:  September 28, 2014

       

      NEWARK, Del. – A weeklong break from competition proved to be fruitful for the University of Delaware  field hockey team as the Blue Hens held on for a 2-1 victory over Fairfield University Sunday afternoon at Fred P. Rullo Stadium.

       

      Junior Allie Mikelson (Emmaus, Pa./Emmaus) registered her first goal of the season, and the fifth of her career, in the 10th minute off a penalty corner. Mikelson took a tip-in pass from sophomore Esmée Peet (Zeewolde, The Netherlands/RSG Slingerbos) to give UD the 1-0 advantage. Sophomore Meghan Winesett (Centreville, Va./Westfield) also assisted on the play.

       

      The Blue Hens (5-5) gained a 2-0 advantage in the 38th minute as freshman Taylor Lister (Hummelstown, Pa/Lower Dauphin) found junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) in front of the cage. Patzner shot the ball in straight away from three yards out for her team-leading fifth goal of  the year.

       

      Fairfield (4-7) threatened late as Jaclyn Gallagher posted a goal in the 56th minute coming out of a timeout, but Delaware held on for the victory.

       

      Redshirt freshman Fran Orella (Whitehouse Station, N.J./Hunterdon Central Regional) made the first start of her career between the pipes for the Hens and came out strong by tallying three saves in 70 minutes for the win.

       

      Caitlin Bennett took the loss for the Stags after recording four saves, but two goals allowed, in the start.

       

      POST-GAME QUOTES

      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof

      “We played a very good first half and then I think we had some moments in the second. We have to continue to grow and put two quality halves together. Fran [Orella] did a great job today.  She stood up to the challenge and did a phenomenal job in helping us get the win we were looking for. This was the last test case before CAA play and I think we have everything in place. If we can be a little more consistent, then we should have a lot of fun and excitement facing CAA opponents."

       

      Junior Allie Mikelson

      [On her penalty corner goal]:  “We’ve been working on that play all week. I knew to look for either Esmée [Peet] or Ela [Patzner] for the tip. We’ve invested a lot of time in all of our corners because that can be the key to victory.”

       

      Redshirt Freshman Fran Orella

      “I was really honored to be able to play today and I think the defense as a whole did a great job. They really helped keep everything in order, so anything I face was a pretty easy save. We’re excited and have a lot of energy [going into CAA play], but we know we have to focus on taking steps every game to keep getting better and better.”

      ANN ARBOR, Mich.  –  The fourth-ranked Maryland field hockey team picked up its first conference victory with a 2-0 win at No. 14 Michigan Friday at Phyllis Ocker Field in Ann Arbor.

      Maryland (6-2, 1-1 B1G) got on the board first with a score by senior Steffi Schneid in with just over eight minutes left in the first half. Schneid corralled a rebound off a saved shot on a penalty corner and scored. The Terps took a 1-0 lead on the Wolverines (6-3, 1-1) into halftime.

      PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—The Rider University field hockey team lost at Drexel University on Friday evening.

      "Drexel is an outstanding team," said head coach Lori Hussong.  "We hung tough and our players gave their all and their best effort."

      The Dragons jumped out to a 1-0 lead just 6:44 into the game when Drexel’s shot was deflected home in front of the goal.

      Less than six minutes later, at the 12:01 mark, another redirect from in close beat junior goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) and Drexel (5-3) led by two goals.

      Drexel led 2-0 at intermission.

      Just 53 seconds into the second half is all it took for Drexel to increase its lead to 3-0 and the Dragons wrapped up the scoring with 1:20 left in the game.

      Prettyman made one save, playing the first 36:53 before giving way to rookie Hannah Isaacs (Piscataway) who made three saves in the final 33:07.

      Rider (3-5) was out-shot 17-4 and the Dragons held a 10-3 penalty corner advantage.

      Sophomore Kalyn O'Brien (Southampton/Seneca), senior Stacey Dileo (Fairfield, Conn./Fairfield Warde), sophomore Carlie Spaeder (Newtown Square, Pa./Cardinal O'Hara) and freshman Megan Eppley (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cumberland Valley) each had shots for Rider.

      Drexel and Rider last met on September 25, 2013 when the Broncs almost upset the 18th ranked Dragons before losing 2-1.  Drexel recorded the game-winner with just 5:42 remaining in regulation.

      Rider has won 11 of the 22 games all-time against Drexel with two games ending in a tie.  Drexel defeated the Broncs 3-0 in the 2012 season opener, also in Philadelphia.  Rider last defeated Drexel in 1995.

      The Broncs celebrate Alumni Day and host Villanova on Ben Cohen Field this Sunday at noon.  Almost 50 alumni are expected back on campus.

      "We are going to go back, watch the film, see what we did well and what we need to work on," Hussong said,

      Syracuse Field Hockey Suffers 3-1 Loss At Virginia

       

      Box Score

       

      CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The No. 10 Syracuse field hockey team suffered a 3-1 setback at No. 3 Virginia on Friday night. Freshman midfielder Lieke Visser tallied the only goal of the night for the Orange.

       

      The host Cavaliers (8-2, 3-0) took an early lead in the opening 10 minutes of the contest. Freshman midfielder Tara Vittese, the ACC Player of the Week, started things off with a goal in the seventh minute of play. Two minutes later, she struck again, putting SU (6-3, 0-3) in an early 2-0 hole.

       

      SU came out firing in the opening minutes of the second half, as Virginia senior goalkeeper Jenny Johnstone recorded four stops in the first four minutes of the latter 35 minutes. Despite the early onslaught by the Orange, Virginia extended its lead. Sophomore midfielder Lucy Hyams tallied a goal in the 40th minute to give the Cavaliers a 3-0 edge.

       

      The team finally broke through for its first tally of the night in the 54th minute. Visser broke through and had a one-on-one with opposing keeper. Visser slotted it past Johnstone to cut the UVA lead to 3-1.

       

      Syracuse outshot Virginia, 13-3, over the final 35 minutes of play. Johnstone made 10 stops for the Cavaliers. Junior goalkeeper Jess Jecko made four first-half saves for the Orange and finished with five on the night.

       

      The Syracuse field hockey team is back in action on Sunday when it hosts in-state foe Hofstra. Game time is scheduled for 3 p.m. at J.S. Coyne Stadium. The game will be televised on Time Warner SportsChannel.

      Lori Hussong 200th career win

      TOWSON, Md.—Senior Laura McCormick (West Windsor/WWP-South) had a goal and an assist and junior goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) made two saves as the Rider University field hockey team gave head coach Lori Hussong career win number 200 at Towson University on Sunday afternoon by a 2-1 score.

      “It was a hot one,” said McCormick.  “We knew it was time to win.  We came together as a team and didn’t want to let up.  We played a full 70 minutes.”

      “We played a good game today,” said Hussong.  “We had good passing and kept pressure on their goalkeeper.  We actually had more scoring opportunities than will show on the scoresheet.  We had more persistence in the offense circle.”

      With the game scoreless, freshman Allison Baligian (Flemington/Hunterdon Central) tipped in a shot from McCormick that beat the Towson goalie from the top of the circle, 56 seconds into the second half as Rider (3-4) opened up a one-goal lead.

      For Baligian it was her second goal of the season.

      Just over 10 minutes later, at the 46:42 mark, McCormick blasted another shot, with the ball deflecting off the post to notch her first goal of the season and second career goal. 

      “Stacey (Dileo) sent a great through ball along the line and I happened to be there,” McCormick remembered about Rider’s second goal.  “I drew it in the circle, got the goalie off her angle and just put it in.”

      “Laura was finally healthy enough so we gave her the start,” Hussong said.  “She has been battling a leg injury and she came through for us in a big way.  Laura gave us stability on the front line and you saw today her ability to score.  She was outstanding and I was proud of her effort.”  McCormick played 42 minutes for the Broncs.

      Towson (1-5) got to within 2-1 when Prettyman made an initial save and the Tigers clawed at the rebound putting the ball in the cage with 19:56 remaining in the game.

      "We let up a late goal again, so  we need to continue to work on finding a way to play tougher and smarter in the later parts of the game," said Hussong.

      Rider out-shot Towson 14-6 with the Tigers holding a 6-5 penalty corner advantage.

      Baligian and freshman Kesheal Henderson (Heath, Mass./Mohawk Regional) each had three shots in the game.

      "Kesheal played well," said Hussong.

      Rider and Towson last met in the 2013 Bronc home opener, a 4-0 Rider win on September 20, 2013.  Rider has defeated Towson 13 times in 18 meetings (one tie) since the series began in 1982.

      Hussong improves to 200-88 in 15 seasons at Rider with eight regular season conference titles, six conference championships, six NCAA play-in game appearances and five conference coach of the year honors.

      “It feels amazing to be part of Coach Hussong’s 200th win,” McCormick said.  “We are happy she finally got it.  It took a little longer than we wanted but we put things together as a team so that is all that really matters.”

      "It is an honor for Dan (Hussong) and I to have the opportunity to be a part of such a special place here at Rider for so long,” Lori Hussong said.  “We have enjoyed every moment from the first win to today’s victory and our goal has always been to give our best in helping our players have the best experience possible in everything aspect of their college life while they are with us at Rider.  Our success is because of their willingness to believe in our philosophy and give their best effort in all that they do."

      Hussong ranks in the top 10 nationally in winning percentage (.694) among active coaches.

      “Today’s milestone is really about the current players, alumni and former assistants in the Rider Field Hockey program who made the sacrifices over the past 15 seasons,” Hussong added.

      Rider travels to Drexel September 26.

      “Drexel will be a tough game,” Hussong said.  “It will be great for us to experience a level of play against a team that is up in the national rankings.  Every year we give them a good game and this will help us see where we are at.  It is anyone’s game on any given day.”

    • ELIZA NEWLIN’S FIRST COLLEGIATE GOAL PROPELS WIDENER FIELD HOCKEY TO 1-0 WIN OVER SWARTHMORE

       

      Chester, PA (Sept. 6, 2014) – Freshman Eliza Newlin (Lewisburg, PA/Lewisburg) netted her first collegiate goal and the defense held up down the stretch for Widener in a 1-0 victory over Swarthmore at Edith R. Dixon Field.

       

      On a scorching-hot day that felt hotter than the 90 degrees the thermometer indicated, the teams battled the heat and each other even with the help of two time outs and a pair of necessitated water breaks.

       

      Widener (1-2) had six shots in the first half and cracked the scoreboard with 3:32 remaining.  Newlin had her initial shot stopped by goalkeeper Ainsley Parrish, but slapped home the rebound.

       

      The Pride’s defense tightened up in the second half as each team had only two shots in the stanza.  Senior Maggie Karmeris (Wilmington, DE/Wilmington Christian) made it stand up with two of her five total saves in the half.

       

      Newlin closed with four shots and sophomore Kaelei Renzi (Mantua, NJ) added three.

       

      Shivani Chinnappan fired two shots and Parrish amassed three saves for the Garnet (0-4).

       

      Widener is back on the road Wednesday at Eastern, starting at 4:00 pm in St. Davids, PA.
