The women’s field hockey team opened its season last weekend with two losses at Temple and Boston University.

In the first game at Temple, the Owls outshot the Bison 15-4 on their way to a 4-0 victory. Ten of the Owls’ shots were on goal, while the Orange and Blue only had two.

Three of the Owls’ four goals came off the stick of Bridget Settles, who propelled Temple to an early 1-0 lead seven minutes into the contest. Sarah Zargarpour ’12 recorded five saves and allowed four Temple goals in her 49 minutes of play. The Bison have now lost their last four season openers and have been shut out in three of those four.

The Bison fell to yet another tough opponent in their contest against the Boston University Terriers in their second game of the road trip. The Terriers had 20 shots in their 5-0 win and scored all five of their goals in the first half. Bison goalkeeper Erica Perrine ’14 entered the game in the second half and kept the Terriers scoreless for the rest of the game.

The Bison will try to end their losing streak against the No. 7 Princeton Tigers tonight at 6 p.m.
