Field Hockey Scores Comeback Win over Hood

BALTIMORE, Md. – The start of Saturday's non-conference match-up between Bryn Mawr and Hood College didn't start well for the Owls, but in the end, the Yellow and White came from behind to defeat the Blazers 5-4.

Hood started the game by finding the back of the cage four times in the opening 15 minutes of play. Down, but not out, Bryn Mawr mounted their comeback.

Following a Hood defensive save on a shot from junior Chloe Weeks, senior Kara Jane O'Donnell was not denied as she scored her third goal of the season in the 22nd minute. Seven minutes later, junior Rachael Kahelin took a pass from sophomore Ashley Arbuckle (pictured) to cut their deficit to two, 4-2.

Arbuckle scored her fifth goal of the year in the 33rd minute to pull the Owls within one right before halftime.

In the second-half, Bryn Mawr picked-up right where they left off, scoring goals. 43-seconds into the half, sophomore Madison Beckmann tallied her 10th goal of the season with an unassisted goal to tie the game at 4-4.

In the 39th minute, Beckmann put the Owls in the lead for good with another unassisted goal. Beckmann's multiple-goal game is the fourth time this year that she has found the back of the cage numerous times.

Bryn Mawr's defensive, led by junior co-captain Faith Westdorp and freshman Ashlee Williams, held the Blazer's scoreless the final 30 minutes of the game as Bryn Mawr claimed the 5-4 win.

The win improves Bryn Mawr to 4-1 on the season while Hood falls to 1-4. The Owls open-up league action on Wednesday, Sept. 19, when they travel to Washington College for a 4:00 pm showdown with the Shorewomen.
