Davidson Field Hockey Beats Appalachian 4-2
The Davidson field hockey team scored three times in the second quarter and rolled to a 4-2 win over Appalachian State Saturday at Belk Turf Field.
It’s the most goals the Wildcats have scored in a game since 2018 (5-2 win over LIU-Brooklyn) and snapped a three-game skid to the Mountaineers.
“Today’s win was such a testament to our hard work over the past year,” said coach Zoe Almquist. “App State is a familiar in-state opponent and serves as a kind of litmus test for our team’s progress. Today was really a whole team win — everyone played their role beautifully and truly trusted themselves and each other. It allowed us to bounce back after a goal against, score on multiple efforts, and hang on to our lead down the stretch. I’m extremely proud of this group and can’t wait to see where we go next.”
Lena Stiebing scored a goal and had two assists, while Corynne Hammit scored and had an assist. Other goals came from Amy Worscheh and McGee Roman.
The Wildcats struck three times in less than 11 minutes of the second, beginning with a Hammit goal, assisted by Stiebing. Hammit assisted on a goal by Worscheh as the clock ticked under two minutes in the period, and Roman scored, off an assist by Stiebing, just as time expired for the intermission.
Cato Roell had three saves for the Wildcats.
The Wildcats host Longwood on Saturday, March 6 at Belk Turf Field.
