Field Hockey Falls to Haverford in Tough Loss

HAVERFORD, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr field hockey team took on Bi-Co rival Haverford earlier Wednesday evening on the road. Goalkeeper Angela Meng made eight saves on the night, and the Owls got yet another great defensive save, but ultimately could not keep the Fords off the scoreboard, as Haverford took a 7-0 victory on the night. Paige Carson led the hosts with two goals on the night.

Haverford (9-5, 5-2 CC) got off to a fast start by scoring their first goal of the game just 18 seconds into play. Right off the opening tip, the Fords worked the ball down the field until it got to the stick of Elena Veale. Veale sent a shot towards the cage, and Carson was able to deflect the ball past Meng and into the back of the goal for a quick 1-0 lead.

Bryn Mawr (0-10, 0-7 CC) tried to get back in the game, but the Owls just weren't able to break the possession game of Haverford. The Fords managed to rack up 34 shots throughout the evening, and ultimately managed to preserve home field and take a 7-0 victory on the night.

The Owls will return to Applebee field for one last homestand to close their season. Bryn Mawr will kick off the final pair of games with a contest this Saturday against Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays are 5-9 and 2-5 in conference play, but will still pose a tough test for the Owls. Saturday's contest is set to kick off at 1:00 PM.
