Anslee Krouch, Senior Writer

Ending their three-game winning streak, the women’s field hockey team fell to Lafayette 1-0 on Oct. 13 at Rappolt Field.

Neither the Bison nor the Leopards were able to score in the first half of the game. Lexi Quick ’19 and Megan Keeney ’21 took the first two shots on goal, but were stopped by the Lafayette goalie.

Ten minutes into the second half, Lafayette scored the only goal of the game off a penalty corner.

“I think the team did a great job keeping up the intensity during the first half of the game. The second half, we lost our composure for a brief time, but we were able to regain it after Lafayette scored. Unfortunately, we were not able to score, but I think that if we were able to keep our composure longer, we would have won,” Emily Finn ’18 said.

Despite the loss, Finn had a strong performance in goal with four saves in each half.

The Orange and Blue have now dropped to 6-8 overall and 2-2 within the Patriot League. They are tied with Lafayette and Holy Cross for the final two seats in the Patriot League Tournament.

“This week we are working on keep up the intensity without getting frantic, and I am optimistic that our practicing will translate well in our upcoming game against Holy Cross,” Finn said.

The Bison will be back home, where they are 5-2 this season, to face Holy Cross on Oct. 21 at 11:00 a.m. Stephanie Dressler ’18, Emily Johnson ’18 and Finn will all be honored for Senior Day before the game.
