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