BALTIMORE, Md. - The Owls field hockey team traveled to Maryland earlier Saturday evening for another big Centennial Conference showdown. This time, Bryn Mawr faced off against a Johns Hopkins squad who was also celebrating their Senior Day this evening. Despite yet another tremendous defensive performance, in which the Owls played to their smallest margin of defeat in a conference road game since 2014, Bryn Mawr was unable to get anything going offensively. Ultimately, the Blue Jays were able to control possession in this contest en route to a 5-0 win on the night.
Bryn Mawr (0-14, 0-9 CC) did a great job in the opening minutes keeping Johns Hopkins from causing any trouble, as the Owls were able to keep the Blue Jays (7-8, 3-5 CC) from doing anything much offensively. However, the hosts were finally able to break through after five minutes of play, as they scored three goals in the next four minutes to jump out to a 3-0 lead. Another goal midway through the first half, and then a fifth just ten minutes into the second were all the Blue Jays needed as they coasted out to their 5-0 lead. Bryn Mawr still did a great job outside of those goals, as they shut down Johns Hopkins otherwise. Sophomore goalkeeper Angela Meng made 15 saves on the day to help in that effort, while the entire rest of the Owls defense put in a strong 70 minutes of effort on the night.
Bryn Mawr will return to action in the middle of next week for one last Centennial Conference contest. The Owls will travel down the road to take on Swarthmore on Wednesday, with gametime slated for 5:30 PM. Bryn Mawr will then close out their 2016 campaign on Sunday, the 30th, with a Senior Day game against Elmira at 2:00 PM.
