LANCASTER, Pa. - Sophomore goalkeeper Maggie Titus posted a goaltending performance for the ages in Bryn Mawr's historic 3-2 win over Gettysburg last week. As a result of her tremendous effort, she has been named the Centennial Conference's Defensive Player of the Week for field hockey.
Titus made 10 saves in the cage for the Owls in the double overtime affair against the Bullets, and came off her line to make several other strong clearances as well. She posted a save percentage of .833 in the game, and at times she singlehandedly kept the Owls in the game. In the overtime periods, she made no less than three big one-on-one saves to keep the Bullets from getting a winner.
Titus' tremendous performance ultimately helped the Owls collect the 3-2 (2OT) win, the first time Bryn Mawr has ever beaten Gettysburg. The sophomore currently ranks fourth in the conference in goals against average. She has helped anchor a Bryn Mawr defense that is second in the conference (18th nationally) in GAA, second in the conference (9th nationally) in shutouts per game, and has allowed Bryn Mawr to hold the best scoring margin (7th nationally) in the conference.
The Owls will be back in action on Wednesday evening as they travel to Muhlenberg for another big Centennial Conference tilt.
