Villanova Holds Off Field Hockey 3-2
CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Davidson scored first and last Sunday, but Villanova did enough in between to emerge with a 3-2 win in non-conference field hockey action.
Celie Constantine scored both Davidson goals, taking her season total to three. Her first goal came off a penalty corner with 13 seconds left in the first quarter and was assisted by Sib Naaktgeboren and Charlie Kabelac.
Constantine’s second goal, off a Macy Curtis assist, cut Villanova’s lead to 3-2 with 5:29 to play. She is now the fourth Wildcat to score at least three goals this year, joining Kabelac, Natalie Naticchia and Anna Sharp.
Villanova evened the score at 1-1 at the 10:31 mark of the second quarter, then scored late in the third and early in the fourth to pull ahead 3-1.
Cato Roell made six saves in goal, and Naaktgeboren had a defensive save.
The Wildcats will play their next two at home, beginning with Saint Joseph’s Friday, Oct. 21 at 6 p.m.
