Field Hockey Falls to Towson on OT Penalty Strokes
TOWSON, Md. — Davidson’s quest for a third straight win ended on penalty strokes and with a 4-3 loss to Towson Sunday in non-conference field hockey.
The Wildcats, who had defeated Lock Haven and Saint Louis in their last two outings, led the Tigers 2-0 and 3-2 during regulation, but after two 10-minute overtimes, Towson emerged with a 2-1 advantage on penalty strokes. Izzy Moody was the lone Wildcat to convert in the five-shot series.
Anna Sharp scored two first-half goals to give the Wildcats the lead, striking twice in a 4:09 span of the second quarter and taking the team lead with five goals this season. Hannah McKeon then scored to get Towson on the board before the half.
After a penalty shot by Towson’s Georgia Beachley tied it at 2-2 in the third quarter, Grayson Buben’s second goal of the year gave the Wildcats the lead. Beachley again tied it, this time with 9:38 left in regulation, to force overtime.
Roell and the defense faced eight shots in the second overtime.
