'Cats Come Up Short Sunday, Fall 2-1 to Ohio

The Wildcats celebrate after freshman Sydney McKenna scored her first goal against Ohio.

DAVIDSON, N.C. — Freshman Sydney McKennanetted her first career goal, snapping Davidson field hockey’s five-game scoring skid, but it wasn’t enough, as the ‘Cats fell 2-1 Sunday to Ohio at Belk Turf Field.

Senior Hannah Fisher and junior Kristin Kisa led the squad with two shots apiece as Davidson out-shot its opponent for the second straight contest. Both of Kisa’s were on-target.

The ‘Cats broke through first, after McKenna caught the rebound off a shot from Fisher in the 24th minute. Davidson looked to carry the lead into half, until the Bobcats tied it up by way of penalty stroke in the final minute-thirty of the first period.

Ohio then added the go-ahead and stole the lead about 10 minutes into the second period off a penalty corner. Both of the Bobcats’ goals came from their leading scorer, back Kendall Ballard.

The Wildcats next hit the road for a league weekend, facing Lock Haven and Saint Francis Friday Sept. 29 and Sunday, Oct. 1
