Greyhounds sprint by Crusaders 2-1

BY CHRISTINA MARTIN, STAFF WRITER
The Susquehanna field hockey
team lost to visiting Moravian 2-1
in its fourth conference game of
the season on Oct. 18.
This game was held in support
of breast cancer awareness, and
both teams were seen warming
up in their pink gear.
The Susquehanna team also
collected money for Play4the-
Cure, a fundraising campaign
for the National Foundation for
Cancer Research, throughout the
week before the game.
Both teams were evenly
matched. Susquehanna came in
with a slight advantage in records,
with a mark of 6-7 compared to
Moravian’s 5-7. Susquehanna
was the first to have control of the
ball, earning a penalty corner one
minute into the game.
From there Moravian took
control, putting three shots on
goal before senior midfielder
Catherine Duffin put the Greyhounds
ahead with her seventh
goal of the season. After she collected
her own rebound, she was
able to beat junior goalie Alyssa
Rothman.
Susquehanna responded to
Moravian’s goal with a shot attempt
by junior back Emily
Reich, but the shot was turned
away by sophomore keeper Megan
Kanyuk.
For 20, minutes neither team
held solid control of the ball, and
no shot was attempted until Duffin
scored her second unassisted
goal of the game shortly after the
30-minute mark.
The beginning of the second
period looked very optimistic
for Susquehanna. The Crusaders
dominated the ball and eventually
were able to score just before the
45-minute mark.
Sophomore midfielder Lauren
Cram, with an assist from freshman
forward Cayla Spatz, was
able to secure her second goal of
the season and put Susquehanna
on the board.
The Crusaders followed this
score with more shot attempts, but
none were able to beat Kanyuk.
At the 53-minute mark,
Susquehanna sophomore midfielder
Megan McClellan had the
opportunity to tie the game with a
penalty stroke but did not make it
into the goal.
Susquehanna attempted three
more shots and three penalty corners
before the end of the game,
but they could not break through.
The result was a 2-1 Moravian
victory and the third Landmark
Conference loss of the
season for Susquehanna.
Head Coach Kaitlyn Wahila
said, “Our ladies fought hard in
the second half to come from a
two-goal deficit.”
She continued, “We scored
a great goal off of an attack
corner and were extremely
close multiple times to tying
the game.”
“We never gave up but unfortunately
came just short of beating
Moravian,” she said.
The Crusaders have two
games left in the regular season.
Their next game is on Saturday
at Catholic at 1 p.m.
Their final game of the regular
season is at home against the
Gophers of Goucher on Nov. 1
