Lafayette Field Hockey Returns to the Road on Saturday
Oct. 19, 2007
EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette field hockey team (6-9, 1-2) will travel to Hamilton, N.Y. on Saturday to face Colgate (8-6, 2-1). The game is set to begin at 11 a.m. on Tyler's Field.
In took only one goal to decide the game on Wednesday night against Rider (7-8, 4-1), when the Leopards defeated the Broncs 1-0. Freshman Cara Lyons scored the lone goal of the game in the second half off a pass from junior Maggie Condon.
It was a night of rookie success with freshman goalie Kelsey Andersen recording her first career shutout, making two saves. Andersen and the defense held Rider to just three shots in the game.
Coming off a seven day break, the Raiders host Lafayette after defeating Bucknell in overtime 4-3 on Oct. 13. The Bison held an impressive 3-0 lead until Lauren Carey scored off a penalty corner in the second half. Colgate registered two more unanswered goals in regulation with forward Katelyn Nerbonne and midfielder Laura Denega scoring. Nerbonne then rescued the Raiders with her second goal of the game at 2:42 in overtime.
"Colgate has had a good season and had some good results," head coach Andrew Griffiths said. "They can score goals so we are definitely aware that they are dangerous. We will be working hard to prepare and hopefully we'll have a good result up in Hamilton."
In 2006, Lafayette defeated Colgate on Oct. 21 on Rappolt Field 2-1. Then-junior Laura Fabian scored the game winner with an assist from then-freshman Caitlin Titus with three minutes remaining in the game. Then-sophomore Condon led the Leopards' attack with 10 shots.
Following the Colgate game, field hockey wraps-up the regular season on the road. Lafayette competes at West Chester on Oct. 24. On Oct. 27, the Leopards compete in their final Patriot League game of the regular season at Bucknell.
