      SUBJECT: NFHCA Names 12 University of Delaware Field Hockey Student-Athletes to National Academic Squad

      DATE: March 24, 2014

      mlh

      NEWARK, Del. – Following the announcement of the National Academic Team Award recipients, NFHCA named 12 University of Delaware field hockey student-athletes to its National Academic Squad for their work in the classroom.

      The 2013 Gladiator by SGI/NFHCA National Academic Squad honors individuals who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or higher during the first semester of the 2013-14 year, which is possibly the busiest time of the year for these student-athletes as they are amidst their championship season.

      “It took a team effort to once again be recognized as a National Academic Team, but it takes a true commitment and investment of our student-athletes to secure GPAs that results in our 2013 fall semester team GPA of a 3.35,” stated head coach Rolf van de Kerkhof.

      Six freshmen (Taylor Meily, Maddie O’Beirne, Fran Orella, Marjelle Scheffers, Meghan Winesett, Maura Zarkoski), two sophomores (Janell Holmes, Morgan Hudson), one junior (Kelsey McKee) and three seniors (Clare O’Malley, Kasey Prettyman, Sarah Scher) on the list represented Delaware.

      O’Malley, Prettyman and Scher were also all honored as four-year award recipients.

      “On behalf of the University of Delaware field hockey program, I am very excited to congratulate Janell, Morgan, Kelsey, Taylor, Maddie, Clare, Fran, Kasey, Marjelle, Sarah, Meghan and Maura on their outstanding academic performance this past semester,” exclaimed Van de Kerkhof. “These 12 student-athletes represent the highest number of Blue Hens players ever listed on a National Academic Squad list to date. The future of UD field hockey looks bright with the recent successes in the classroom and on the field, and even more importantly, the understanding on how to prepare for and pursue excellence in the semesters and seasons to come.”

      Delaware posted a program-record 17 victories in 2013 in addition to earning both the CAA regular season and tournament championships en route to the fifth NCAA Tournament berth in school history.

      Chester, PA (Mar. 20, 2014) – Widener field hockey junior Maggie Karmeris (Wilmington, DE/Wilmington Christian) has been named Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District in the at-large category.

       

      This is just the latest award for Karmeris, who last fall was named to the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Team and to the inaugural Middle Atlantic Conference Academic All-Conference Team.  This spring, she was picked a National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFCHA) Scholar of Distinction for having at least a 3.9 GPA through last semester.

       

      Karmeris had another strong year in which she played almost every minute in goal.  She ended fifth in the Commonwealth Conference with 5.94 saves per game, seventh with a 2.37 goals-against average and seventh with a .754 save percentage.  She had five games this season in which she recorded double figures in saves, including a career-best 14 in back-to-back outings vs. Arcadia and nationally ranked Messiah.

       

      Karmeris also is a two-time member of the MAC Academic Honor Roll, participated in the NCAA Career in Sports Forum in June 2013, was elected to attend the MAC Women’s Coaching Symposium this year and was selected to be a member of the University’s first cohort of Oskin Leaders in the Oskin Leadership Institute.

       

      The Academic All-Americas in the at-large field will be announced in June.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Field Hockey Unveils Challenging 2014 Schedule
       
      DATE:  June 4 , 2014
      sws:
       
      NEWARK, Del.  -- The journey to a second consecutive and fourth overall Colonial Athletic Association crown will not be an easy one as University of Delaware head coach Rolf van de Kerkhof announced a demanding, but balanced, 2014 schedule for his Blue Hens field hockey squad.
       
      In total, Delaware will face four NCAA Tournament teams and five NFHCA ranked teams from the 2013 campaign. Additionally, UD will play eight regular season games at home this coming fall.
       
      The Blue Hens get their feet wet on August 23 with an exhibition contest against Penn State at Rullo Stadium before heading west for a three-game set in the Golden State.
       
      Delaware officially opens 2014 play with a busy Labor Day weekend schedule vs. NorPac Conference competitors in Stanford, Pacific, and Cal. The Hens face the Cardinal, who has won five straight NorPac West regular season titles, in the season lid-lifter on Aug. 29. The following afternoon, UD helps the Tigers open a brand new on-campus turf facility in Stockton. The weekend is rounded out on Sept. 1 as Delaware faces the Bears, also at Pacific’s new facility.
       
      “I am excited for our team to open 2014 with a West Coast trip,” remarked Van de Kerkhof, the 2013 NFHCA Mid-Atlantic Coach of the Year and CAA Co-Coach of the Year. “This trip will allow us to measure where we are as a team after preseason and also provides us with a postseason experience due to the travel demands and the three games we will play in four days.”
       
      The Blue Hens will return to the East Coast the following week to play the next three of four games at Rullo Stadium by hosting Richmond (Sept. 5), perennial NCAA Final Four participant North Carolina (Sept. 7), and Cornell (Sept. 14).
       
      Delaware will become road warriors once again for over a month as six of the next seven games will be played away from Newark with matchups at Villanova (Sept. 19), Old Dominion (Sept. 21), James Madison (Oct. 3), William & Mary (Oct. 5), Princeton (Oct. 10), and Towson (Oct. 12).  A matchup against Fairfield (Sept. 28) will be the lone contest at Rullo Stadium during the four-week span.
       
      The game on Oct. 3 at James Madison will kick off CAA action while league play does not return to Rullo Stadium until Oct. 24 when UD hosts Northeastern for a rematch of the 2013 CAA Championship final. The Hens complete the weekend with a game against Hofstra on Oct. 26 before rounding out regular season action against Drexel on Nov. 2.
       
      The Hens will also face non-conference opponents Columbia (home on Oct. 19) and Lafayette (away on Oct. 31).
       
      “We have a good non-conference schedule that spreads across various regions, which will allow our team to further prepare as we have the desire to compete once again for the CAA Championship,” stated Van de Kerkhof, who will be in his fourth season at the helm of the Blue Hens. “As we continue to focus on one game at a time, each next game on our schedule will be used to enhance our performances on the field so we are in the best position for postseason competition.”
       
      The 2014 CAA Championship will be held Nov. 7-9 with the top seed serving as host once again this season.
       
      AGATE:
       
      August 23, vs. Penn State (Exhibition), 2 p.m.; 29, at Stanford, 3 p.m.; 30, at Pacific, 6 p.m.
       
      September 1, vs. California (at Pacific), 4 p.m.; 5, vs. Richmond, 7 p.m.; 7, vs. North Carolina, 12 noon; 12, at Temple, 3 p.m.; 14, vs. Cornell, 1 p.m. 19, at Villanova, 7 p.m.; 21, at Old Dominion, 12 noon; 28, vs. Fairfield, 1 p.m.

      WIDENER FIELD HOCKEY PICKED TO END SEVENTH IN THE COMMONWEALTH CONFERENCE

       

      Annville, PA (Aug. 21, 2014) – Widener’s field hockey team was picked to finish seventh in the Commonwealth Conference based on a vote by the league’s coaches.

       

      Many talented student-athletes are back in the fold, but one who embraces the true meaning of student-athlete is senior Maggie Karmeris (Wilmington, DE/Wilmington Christian). Last season was a high point in her career as she was tabbed third team Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-America, one of 51 so honored in school history. The accolades before that also have been impressive in being picked a Scholar of Distinction by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) and named to the Middle Atlantic Conference Academic All-Conference Team.

       

      Karmeris on the field closed fifth in the Commonwealth Conference with 5.94 saves per game, totaling 107 saves for a .754 save percentage.

       

      Junior forward Meghan Garvey (Avondale, PA/Avon Grove) earned her spot as second team all-conference thanks to her tenacious play and will to win, one year after being picked Honorable Mention all-league. The two-sport athlete finished another solid campaign last season with 11 goals to close sixth in the league and 26 points to end seventh.

       

      Ashley Aires (Bayville, NJ/Central) had a strong sophomore campaign last year at midfield and defense in which she was picked second team all-conference. She brings a lot to the table whether it is her play making or her defensive saves, both talents of which will be extremely valuable this year. Aires ended the year with three defensive saves and two goals.

       

      Messiah unanimously was picked to win the conference.

       

      Widener opens its season August 29 at Immaculata.

      SUBJECT:  No. 18 University of Delaware Field Hockey Blanked in Season Opener at No. 12 Stanford

       

      DATE:  August 29, 2014

       

      STANFORD, Calif. – The season opener didn’t go quite as expected for the University of Delaware field hockey squad as No. 12 Stanford shutout the No. 18 Blue Hens, 4-0, at Varsity Turf Friday evening.

       

      The Cardinal (1-0) opened with a quick goal from Maddie Secco off a penalty corner in the sixth minute and Stanford never looked back in the game.

       

      Lauren Becker added two goals for the Cardinal while Fran Tew also collected a score.

       

      UD freshman Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) made her collegiate debut between the pipes and registered three saves in the loss.

       

      Stanford’s Dulcie Davies held the Blue Hens (0-1) scoreless with eight saves for the win.

       

      POST-GAME QUOTES

      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof

      “‘Play and learn’ is an expression we use a lot and that really sums up our season opener and game experience today. After a first half in which the team seemed to be having difficulties connecting with each other and playing as a team, the majority of the second half was a different story and a great example of how Delaware field hockey can be played. Our learning experience of the entire game and especially the quality performance in the second half today will put us in a much better position to take the next step in our team development and early season growth tomorrow versus Pacific.”

      DAVIDSON, N.C.—Senior Dezarae Fillmyer (Roebling, N.J./Florence) scored her fourth goal of the season but it wasn’t enough as the Rider University field hockey team lost 2-1 on Saturday afternoon at Davidson.

      “It’s been the same story for the first three games of the season,” said head coach Lori Hussong.  “It’s not for the lack of effort or scoring opportunities.  We need to stay composed and finish the plays.  Once we get that first offensive goal, the rest will fall into place.”

      Fillmyer converted her fourth penalty stroke of the 2014 season when Rider (1-2) was awarded the penalty as time expired.

      Davidson (1-2) got on the board 13 minutes into the game and the Wildcats scored with just under 20 minutes remaining for the two-goal lead.

      Rider out-shot Davidson 13-11, including 10-5 in the second half but the Broncs could only get four penalty corners.

      “It wasn’t our best effort as far as playing as a cohesive unit but they are trying,” Hussong added.  “We just need more experience playing together as a group.”

      Junior Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) had three saves.

      This was the third meeting between Davidson and Rider in field hockey.  The Wildcats won 3-2 in double overtime over the Broncs in the 2005 season opener and Rider won over Davidson during the 2000 season.

      Rider stays in North Carolina to face Appalachian State on Sunday.

      “Appalachian State has a new turf surface and it is fast,” Hussong said.  “It is nice that we can get right back out there and fix some of the errors we made today and do a better job.  It’s going to be a tough game.”

      College Field Hockey
      Saint Francis (Pa.) 3, Rider University 2 (ot)

      LAWRENCEVILLE—Despite two goals from senior Dezarae Fillmyer (Roebling/Florence), the Rider University field hockey team lost 3-2 in overtime to Saint Francis (Pa.) on Monday afternoon at Ben Cohen Field.

      Saint Francis scored just 2:23 into the first overtime period, knocking home a left side shot after Rider put the Red Flash on its 11th penalty corner of the game.

      “They (Saint Francis) created a corner opportunity and any time that happens in an overtime (7 on 7) situation, it is a huge advantage to the attacking team,” said head coach Lori Hussong, in her 15th season at Rider.  “Kudos to them, they shot a beautiful shot in and beat our goalkeeper.”

      This is only the fourth time in 35 games that Rider has lost at home since the lighted campus field opened in the Fall of 2010.

      Fillmyer broke a scoreless tie 25 minutes into the game, converting her second penalty stroke of the season, a shot that the Red Flash goalie got a piece of.

      “We came out pretty strong, playing against a team that was very skilled,” said Fillmyer a veteran of 59 games and a preseason All-MAAC selection.  “We hustled all over the field for about 70 minutes of the game and worked well together but we had a couple of slip ups which cost us the game.”

      The Red Flash tied the game 13 minutes into the second half on a penalty corner.

      Fillmyer scored her second goal of the game, converting another penalty stroke to give Rider (1-1) a 2-1 lead with less than 16 minutes left in regulation.  Fillmyer has all three Rider goals this season, all on penalty strokes and she has logged all 142 minutes of play on the back line.

      “Dez is playing outstanding as well as the entire defense,” Hussong added.  “Even though it doesn’t show with the three goals scored, our back line is playing spectacular.”

      “I would not have had the opportunities to score on the penalty strokes if my teammates didn’t hustle and make the plays in the circle which created the chances,” Fillmyer added.

      The Red Flash tied the game with 3:28 left in the second half, lofting a high shot into the right corner of the goal on a penalty corner.

      Saint Francis (2-0) held an 11-7 penalty corner advantage and out-shot the Broncs 15-13, including 2-0 in the overtime period.

      “I was happy with our overall performance compared to our opening game,” Hussong said.  “We transitioned down the field better and were able to generate an attack.  We need to gain confidence and cash those scoring opportunities in.”

      Junior goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mary’s) made five saves with senior Stacey Dileo (Fairfield, Conn./Fairfield Warde) recording her second defensive save of the season.

      Former conference rivals in the Northeast Conference, Rider and Saint Francis (Pa.) last met in 2012, a 2-1 Rider victory in Lawrenceville.  This was Rider’s first loss to the Red Flash in 16 games.

      “We are disappointed that we lost but I’m pleased with the progress that we are making,” Hussong added.  “We had pressure on the ball and we hustled all over the field.”

      Rider travels to North Carolina to face Davidson and Appalachian State September 6-7.

      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.

      Freshman Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) registered six saves for Delaware while Megan Hept collected three stops for the Monarchs.

      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.”

      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.

      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,

      #4 Maryland Picks Up First B1G Win at #14 Michigan

      Terps blank Wolverines 2-0 in Ann Arbor Friday

       

      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.

      The Terrapins made it a two-goal lead in the 60th minute when senior captain Maxine Fluharty scored off a similar play – a rebound on a penalty corner.

      Maryland took 13 shots to the Wolverines’ five, including 10 in the second half alone. Redshirt senior goalkeeper Brooke Cabrera made five saves on the day and three were in the second half to preserve the Terps' third shutout of the year.

      Maryland won its 11th straight matchup against Michigan, dating back to 2003. The Terrapins are 4-0 all-time at the Wolverines' Phyllis Ocker Field, the site of this year's Big Ten Championships Nov. 6-9.

      Next, the Terps will play at No. 18 Michigan State for the first time in school history Sunday at 1 p.m. ET at Ralph Young Field in East Lansing.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Holds On For 2-1 Field Hockey Victory Over Fairfield

       

      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.”

      ·      Freshman Emmeline Oltmans missed her first start of the season after suffering a knee injury Friday. She is expected to return to the cage this week.

      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:  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. 

       

      Winesett collected a pass from freshman Krissy Mikelson (Emmaus, Pa./Emmaus) along the baseline in the 52nd minute for the team’s fourth goal of the afternoon. 

       

      Less than two minutes later, Delaware took advantage of a penalty corner as Peet put the Hens up, 5-3, off assists from Mikelson and her sister, junior Allie Mikelson (Emmaus, Pa./Emmaus).

       

      Both Allie Mikelson and Krissy Mikelson, alongside junior Michaela Patzner (Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium) finished the day with two total assists apiece while sophomore Marjelle Scheffers (Amersfoort, The Netherlands/Stedelijk Gymnasium Johan van Oldenbarneveld) also had an assist for the Blue Hens.

       

      Redshirt freshman Fran Orella (Whitehouse Station, N.J./Hunterdon Central Regional) collected five saves in her third start of the season.

       

      William & Mary’s Emma Clifton picked up two goals in the Tribe loss.  Meredith Savage registered six saves for W&M.

       

      Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof

      “I’m excited for our players as they continue to raise their performances and their ability to take care of game details. We had to battle a number of on-field challenges versus JMU and W&M this weekend, but found ways and worked together to take care of them. As a team, we are thrilled to be 2-0 in CAA competition. We can be a very good team and today we took another step in this process. This past weekend’s experiences and performances will provide us with the desire and energy to continue our journey.”

      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.

      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.

      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.”

      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.

      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.
