The Davidson Field Hockey team celebrates their victory over A-10 opponent Saint Louis. The 2-1 win came on Senior Day, and both Wildcat goals were scored by senior Hannah Fisher.

DAVIDSON, N.C. – Veteran Hannah Fisher delivered on Senior Day, scoring twice to propel the ‘Cats to their first win of the season as they defeated Saint Louis 2-1 Saturday at Belk Turf Field.

Davidson improves to 1-14 on the season, and 1-6 in the Atlantic 10.

Davidson senior Hannah Fisher rallies the crowd after she scored the Cats’ second goal in the game against Saint Louis.

Fisher fired off five shots, four on-target, while classmate Lauren Gampper and junior Courtney Byler each added an assist. Sophomore goalkeeper Sarah Zeszotarski nabbed five saves.

The Billikens scored first, finding the top of the net off a redirect from a corner kick early in the first period. Fisher then registered the equalizer in the 31st minute, firing the ball past the keeper nearside off of a corner.

The ‘Cats went into the half in a tie, and possession mostly stayed even during the start of the second half. With under eight minutes left in regulation, Davidson took advantage of another penalty corner, this time the ball coming from Byler’s stick as Fisher sent it to the lower right back of the cage.

The Wildcats played a tight defense the remainder of the contest, rarely allowing the Billikens into scoring position and not surrendering any corners.

Fisher now has seven goals on the season, while Gampper picked up her third assist and Byler recorded her fifth.
