Owls field hockey team moves to 5-1 in LEC

SALEM, Mass. – Keene State College freshman Grace Taylor, who scored her first collegiate goal last Saturday, did one better Wednesday night, scoring twice as the Owls field hockey team rolled past Salem State University, 4-2, in a Little East Conference contest at Alumni Field. The win moves the Owls to sole possession of first in the league (5-8, 5-1 LEC).

Taylor scored just 9:02 in for a 1-0 lead. Salem State was limited to just one shot in the opening 15 minutes, though it did go in as Allison Couillard scored with just five seconds left in the quarter to tie the game.

The 1-1 stalemate lasted all of three minutes, as Chase Lambert found Irini Stefanakos for her 12th goal of the season to put Keene State in front again early in the second quarter, where they remained for the remainder of the contest. The Owls ran away on the scoreboard with two goals in 2:57 late in the third quarter, a period in which Salem was held without a shot. Taylor again hung around the cage to bury a rebound, putting home Ellie Hunkins‘ initial try for a 3-1 edge in the 40th minute before Maggie Cahoon inserted a corner and then scored less than 10 seconds later.

Keene State goalkeeper Molly Edmark got the win after making seven stops, all in the fourth quarter where KSC was outshot 8-0 after holding a 21-3 edge in that category entering the final 15 minutes.

The Owls next visit 6th-ranked Babson College (9-1, 3-0 NEWMAC) Sunday at 1 p.m.

FPU field hockey team felled at Assumption

WORCESTER, Mass. — No. 3 nationally ranked Assumption scored three goals in the first nine minutes of the game and never looked back on Wednesday night, as the Franklin Pierce University field hockey team suffered a 5-1 loss on the road. Seniors Jenna Graf and Shannon Quinlan each had a goal and an assist to lead the Greyhounds, while sophomore Silver Clukey scored the lone goal in defeat for the Ravens.

Franklin Pierce’s only tally of the night came off a corner play in the 13th minute. Clukey inserted the ball and cut to the left post. Once there, she took a return feed from sophomore Julia Rooijakkers and finished off her third goal of the year.

But Assumption added a pair of third-quarter goals to create the 5-1 final.

Freshman Addy Araneo faced a bombardment of 19 shots in front of the Franklin Pierce cage and made 14 saves while taking the loss (3-4).

With the loss, Franklin Pierce falls to 3-8 (1-7 NE10), while Assumption improves to 9-1 (7-0 NE10) and has won nine in a row. The two teams will meet again Sunday at 11 a.m. at Franklin Pierce.
