DAVIDSON, N.C. –  Davidson knocked on the door all afternoon, but the Wildcats were unable to take advantage of their shots in a 1-0 field hockey loss to Saint Francis (Pa.) Sunday at Belk Turf Field.

Both teams finished with 6 shots on goal, but it was Saint Francis that emerged with the victory to move to 7-7 overall and 3-2 in the Atlantic 10. Davidson is now 4-8, 1-3.

“We played really well,” Davidson coach Ginny Turner said. “I’m disappointed we didn’t put the ball in the cage for playing some really good hockey today. We had the opportunities today so it really hurts not to finish. I think we outplayed them. They just had their opportunities, and they put it in.”

The game’s only goal came in the 29th minute by Saint Francis freshman Atina Pagani.

Kristin Kisa led Davidson with 5 shots, including 3 on goal. She leads the Wildcats with 20 shots on goal this season. Leigha Nortier, Corynne Hammit and Sydney McKenna also had shots on goal.

Wildcats goalkeeper Sarah Zeszortaski had 4 saves in the loss.

Friday night Davidson fell 2-0 to Lock Haven in Atlantic 10 field hockey play at Belk Turf Field.

Davidson goalkeeper Sarah Zeszotarski had 4 saves, and the Wildcats’ shots on goal came from Leigha Nortier and Emily Roebuck.
