Field Hockey Tops Towson for 2-0 Start
DAVIDSON — Two goals in a five-minute span of the third quarter proved to be the difference Sunday afternoon in Davidson field hockey’s 3-1 win over Towson at Belk Turf Field.
Paired with Friday’s 1-0 win over Georgetown, the Wildcats are now 2-0 and off to their best start since 2013, when they opened 3-0, and ironically, also notched victories over Georgetown and Towson.
“We’re super excited to start 2-0,” said coach Zoe Almquist. “I think we came out ready to battle this weekend and had two great oppponents that we faced well. Today was hot, and we were still ready to go in the third quarter and came out really strong.”
Towson struck first Sunday, early in the second quarter, but Celie Constantine scored her first career goal 1:20 later, on an assist from Naaktgeboren, to even it.
Genna Barge made seven saves, as the Davidson defense kept the Tigers at bay.
The Wildcats will travel for the first time when they visit Queens Friday, Sept. 2.
