KSC Owls field hockey pummels Castleton, 9-2

Hailey Patridge, Kirsten Dinsmore and Kaylin Voudren all scored the first goals of their Keene State College field hockey careers as the Owls saw seven different players find the back of the cage to go on to a 9-2 rout of Castleton University in a Little East Conference matchup at Owl Athletic Complex Wednesday night.

Other scores came from Maggie Cahoon, Ellie Hunkins, Irini Stefanakos and Grace Taylor.

Victoria Watson (2-0) got the start in the KSC cage and made one stop. Ashley Enis saved one shot in the fourth quarter.

The Owls have scored 29 goals in their last five home games.

The win moves the Owls (9-10, 9-2 LEC) within one win of the league's regular season title with a win at Westfield State on Friday at 7 p.m. If Westfield wins, KSC would slip to at least third and could fall to as low as fifth, depending on other results around the league.
