Davidson Field Hockey Has Setback Against La Salle
DAVIDSON — “How do we take some lessons from today and take a leap forward?”
That’s what Davidson field hockey coach Zoe Almquist asked her team following a 3-0 loss to La Salle in Atlantic 10 Conference play Friday night at Belk Turf Field.
“La Salle really put it together from the get-go,” said Almquist. “They really kind of executed our gameplan of getting after it early, and it just put us on our heels. It took us a while to respond, and we did in the second half. We had some really good attacks.”
Beau Bakker’s goal in the 20th minute gave the Explorers the 1-0 lead at the half. Amanda Chapin added a goal two minutes into the second half, and Bakker’s second goal made it 3-0 40 seconds into the fourth quarter.
Davidson finished with five penalty corners and three shots on goal. Keeper Sarah Zeszotarski had four saves.
“Sarah, again, kept us in the game,” said Almquist. “She’s been so solid back there for us.”
