Women’s field hockey suffered a 1-0 loss to Lock Haven on the Eagles’ home turf thanks to Kiersten Cepeda’s first-half goal. The loss marks the fall of the Bison’s overall season record to 0-2, following a loss at their opening game against No. 13 Iowa last weekend.

Although the Bison had many advantages on penalty corners (6-1), they were unable to muster a successful offensive drive. In just two games, the Orange and Blue clenched a 12-5 lead in penalty corners, but only managed five shots on goal.

The Eagles managed six shots, three courtesy of Cepeda. Goalie Erica Perrine ’14 had two crucial saves, and Liz Wills ’15 and Amie Pritchard ’15 each made a defensive save.

The Orange and Blue will compete next against Missouri State tomorrow in Columbus, Ohio.
