COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr field hockey team took another tough loss earlier Tuesday afternoon. The Owls traveled to Centennial Conference foe Ursinus College and were forced to come back home with a tough 10-0 loss. Ursinus came into the game fresh off being ranked eighth in the most recent Penn Monto/NFHCA coaches poll, and today's contest showed just why they deserved that recognition. Try as they might, Bryn Mawr was unable to get any offense going against the Bears. Angela Meng made nine saves on the afternoon, and Katie Alpert registered another defensive save in the contest, her team-leading sixth of the season.
Ursinus (10-2, 6-1 CC) got on the scoreboard early in today's game, tallying their first goal just 20 seconds after the opening whistle sounded. The Bears would score seven more times in the first half and twice in the second to complete their 10-0 scoreline. Bryn Mawr (0-9, 0-6 CC) registered two shots in the game, with Emma Hicks and Holly Senebandith responsible for those efforts. However, the Ursinus defense was able to block both of those attempts and preserve the shutout on the day.
The Owls will continue their busy slate of games this week with a rare Friday afternoon match against Gettysburg. Bryn Mawr will travel to the historic PA town to take on a Bullets squad that is currently 5-7 on the year and 1-4 in league play. However, they are coming off of back-to-back wins over Swarthmore and Cabrini, so there is plenty of fight left in that team. Friday's contest should be a good one, and it is slated to start at 3:30 PM.
