Lock Haven Comes From Behind To Defeat Field Hockey

HAMDEN, Conn. – Jenna Grossman (Flanders, N.J.) made a season-high 13 saves, but the Quinnipiac University field hockey team was defeated by Lock Haven, 3-2, Friday afternoon at Quinnipiac Field Hockey & Lacrosse Turf Field. The Bald Eagles' Blair Wynne scored the game-winner with 6.7 seconds remaining to give Lock Haven the win.

Katie Van Nostrand (Derry, N.H.) and Megan Sciascia (Cheshire, Conn.) scored unassisted goals in defeat, while Lock Haven's Amy Hordendorf scored twice. Erin Terreson took the win for the Bald Eagles, making three saves.

Hordendorf got the Bald Eagles on the board with 2:15 remaining in the first half, scoring on a penalty stroke. The shot was awarded after Hordendorf was taken down by Grossman as the Bobcats' goalkeeper rushed out of the net attempting to stop Hordendorf's shot.

The Bobcats knotted the score at one off a penalty corner nearly three and a half minutes into the second half. Van Nostrand shot from right to left atop the circle, through a crowd and past Terreson at the left post.

Quinnipiac scored the go-ahead goal as Sciascia put home the rebound of Lauren Hartnett's shot, which clanged off the left post. The carom found Sciascia 10 yards out from the right post, where she fired it past Terreson into the middle of the net.

Hordendorf scored her second goal of the afternoon with just under four minutes left in regulation. She controlled the ball 20 yards directly in front of the net and spun around a Bobcat defender, leaving her one-on-one with Grossman. Hordendorf put the ball over Grossman and into the net.

Wynne scored the game-winner off a penalty corner with 6.7 seconds left in the game. The senior shot from 20 yards out on the left side, going high into the top right corner to beat Grossman.

The Bobcats return to action Sunday, when they welcome Siena to Hamden for the final regular season home game of the season. Quinnipiac will honor its senior class prior to the noon start.
