      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.”

      SUBJECT:  Hofstra Puts End to University of Delaware’s 12-Game CAA Winning Streak as Blue Hens Fall, 5-2, in Field  Hockey
       
      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.
      ·      The Blue Hens recognized breast cancer awareness by wearing pink socks and ribbons.
       
      UPCOMING SCHEDULE
      ·      Friday, October 31 – Delaware at Lafayette – 7 p.m. – Rappolt Field (Easton, Pa.)
      ·      Sunday, November 2 – Drexel at Delaware* – 1 p.m. – Fred P. Rullo Stadium (Newark, Del.) – Senior Day
      ·      Friday, November 7 – CAA Tournament Semifinals – Time/Location TBA

      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.”

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Field Hockey Outlasted in Overtime as Delaware Drops 1-0 Heartbreaker to Drexel
       
      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.

      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.”

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Field Hockey to Host NCAA Play-In Game Against Kent State Wednesday at Fred P. Rullo Stadium

       

      DATE:  November 9, 2014

       

      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.

      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.”

       

      HEN SCRATCHINGS

      ·      The two teams each collected five penalty corners.
