Sept. 30 - BETHANY, W.Va. – Four first-half goals by visiting Frostburg State provided enough cushion for the Bobcats, who went on to a 6-0 victory over the Bethany College field hockey team Sunday afternoon at Bison Stadium.
Bison freshman goalie Jacqueline Harrison (right - Massapequa Park, N.Y./Massapequa) kept the Bobcats (5-7) off the board early with three saves, but the visitors broke through with a score in the ninth minute. They would add on goals in the 17th, 26th and 32nd minutes to construct their 4-0 halftime margin.
Frostburg would post two more scores in the second half to account for the final six-goal spread. Bethany (1-7) threatened for a score late in the game, but shots by sophomore Kadie Kelly (Royal Oak, Md./Saint Michaels) and freshman Taylor Solomon (Beltsville, Md./Elizabeth Seton) were both saved and the Bobcats recorded the shutout. For Bethany, Harrison made 13 saves in net and the BC defense was also credited with five stops, including two each for junior Ashlee Needy (Chicago, Ill./Marist) and freshman Courtney Snyder (Bristol, Pa.).
The Bison will be back on the field Monday night when they host Wilson (Pa.) College at 6 p.m.
