Field Hockey Has Season-High In Shots On Goal But Fall To Neumann

Oct. 12- BETHANY, W.Va.- The Bethany College field hockey team recorded a season-high 10 shots on goal but ended up falling, 3-0, to Neumann University on Saturday afternoon at Bison Stadium.

The Bison also set a season-high with 10 penalty corners.

Sophomore Jacqueline Harrison (Massapequa Park, N.Y./Massapequa) was great in net for the Bison on her birthday as she recorded 16 saves which is the second most saves in a single game for her this season.

Lindsey Kasecamp picked up her third victory of the season for the Knights as she made 10 saves on the afternoon.

Bethany got its offense going early in the first half as it forced Kaescamp to make two saves in the first two minutes of the game to keep the game scoreless.

Neumann looked like it was going to take a 1-0 lead early as Carolynn Bacho raced past the defenders and had a breakaway but Harrison made a fantastic diving save to keep the game scoreless at the 12:19 mark of the opening half.

Alexa McIntyre gave the Knights a 1-0 lead at the 22:41 mark as she scored on a penalty stroke.

Freshman Lauren Rao (North Tonawanda, N.Y./Sweet Home) had the best opportunity of the match to put the Bison on the board, as she took a penalty stroke at 30:35 of the first half, but Kasecamp dove to the left and made a great diving save to keep the ball out of the net.

The Bison had 10 shots in the first half but were unable to get one past Kaescamp as the Knights took a 2-0 lead into the halftime break.

Jess Harrell gave the Knights its final goal in the 69th minute as Neumann went on for the 3-0 victory.

Second year Head Coach Stephanie Bernthal had these remarks about her team's performance on Saturday afternoon, "Today was a fight. We are continuing to grow in our offensive output which is exciting to see. The girls continue to create opportunities and now it's about maturing and finishing them." 

Bethany returns to action on Monday afternoon when it travels to Lexington, Kentucky to face Centre with the match set for 5:00 p.m.
