Field Hockey Edged by Bellarmine
DAVIDSON — Davidson and Bellarmine combined to score four goals in a six-minute span of the second quarter Sunday in an eventual 4-3 Bellarmine field hockey win at Belk Turf Field.
The Wildcats and Knights also combined for 30 shots, including 10 shots-on-goal each, and 21 penalty corners in the back-and-forth high-scoring affair.
Ultimately, the Knights took the lead for good on Amber Hofenk Jerembo’s second goal in the six-minute barrage, which came late in the first half.
Davidson’s first goal came off the stick of Bella Worthington, who tipped in an Anna Sharp shot to make it 1-1. Then Charlie Kabelac scored off a corner to tie it at 2-2 just 39 seconds before Hofenk Jerembo’s go-ahead goal.
The Wildcats pulled within 4-3 in the 56th minute when Sarah Minges found the cage after a penalty corner attempt.
The Wildcats will be in Philadelphia next weekend, where first they’ll face Atlantic 10 foe La Salle on Friday, Oct. 14 at 3 p.m.
