The men’s soccer team (4-6, 1-2 CC) attempted a late comeback against Centennial Conference opponent Johns Hopkins this past weekend, but time was ultimately not on their side. The result was a 3-2 loss against the Blue Jays. Both of the Garnet’s goals were made within four minutes of each other late in the game during the 79th and 82nd minute. However, the remaining seven minutes proved to be not enough time to even the score.
Both of the Garnet’s goals were netted by freshmen. The first was scored by Saadiq Garba ’19, who headed in a pass from Kyle Richmond-Crosset ’19. Richmond-Crosset followed Garba’s lead and recorded the second goal of the game soon after. Goalie Tyler Zon ’16 finished with a total of 3 saves, all in the first period.
However, the men were able to rally their first conference win against Muhlenberg College and finished the game with a 2-0 win.
The men will travel to their fourth conference game of the season against Ursinus College this Saturday.
The women’s field hockey team (1-7, 0-3) lost their second conference game of the season after falling to Dickinson College this past weekend 3-1. Erin Gluck ’16 scored the only goal for the Garnet midway through the first period and found the back of the net off of a pass from Clare Perez ’18. Goalkeeper Ainsley Parrish ’16 recorded a career-high 20 saves on the 38 shots taken by Dickinson compared to the Garnet’s six shots.
Last night, the women were bested again by conference opponents in their match against Ursinus College. The Grizzly Bears began the game with an early lead and scored six goals in the first half and two goals in the second half which resulted in a 8-0 loss for the Garnet.
The team looks toward ending their losing streak this Saturday against Johns Hopkins at home.
The Garnet (12-3, 2-0 CC) bumped their seven match winning streak up to 10 and added another team to their list of fallen opponents as they defeated Dickinson 3-0 at home in their first conference game this weekend. Sarah Wallace ’18 led the way for the Garnet and completed the double-double, finishing with 16 kills and 10 digs. Wallace was also named Centennial Co-Player of the Week last week for her performance on the court, registering a season-high 19 kills against out-of-conference opponent Lebanon Valley.
Like Wallace, Sarah Girard ’19 and Madison Heppe ’16 both completed the match with double-figures for digs with 15 and 10, respectively. Malia Scott ’18 also contributed to the win against Dickinson, registering a career high six service aces out of the 15 recorded in the match.
Last night, the women continued their winning streak and defeated Widener in all three sets.
The Garnet have their eyes set on continuing their winning streak as they travel to Baltimore to face Johns Hopkins this Saturday.
