Lafayette Field Hockey Takes a Break from Patriot League Competition
Oct. 10, 2007
EASTON, Pa. - The Leopards' field hockey team (4-7, 1-1) continues their seven-game homestand against No. 9 Penn State (9-4, 2-1) Wednesday night at 6 p.m. The Nittany Lions are the first currently ranked opponent Lafayette has faced this season, but the game is a break in conference action for the Maroon and White.
The Leopards defeated Lehigh, 3-2, on Oct. 6 in their second Patriot League match-up of the 2007 season after falling 1-0 to Holy Cross on Sept. 29. Junior Maggie Condon opened the scoring for Lafayette, registering the first two goals of the game.
Freshman Meghan Cicchi scored her second goal of the year, making the score 3-1. Rookie goalkeeper Kelsey Andersen started her first game in the cage and made three saves against the Mountain Hawks, helping the Leopards to the 3-2 victory.
Last year, Lafayette traveled to University Park, Pa. to face Penn State, then-ranked No. 7 in the STX/NFHCA Coaches Poll. The Leopards were shutout and the Nittany Lions won 4-0 on their home turf.
After Wednesday's game, Lafayette returns to Patriot League action to play another nationally ranked opponent, No. 16 American on Saturday at 1 p.m.
