Panther field hockey wins a pair
CLINTON, N.Y. — The Middlebury College field hockey team won two NESCAC road games this past weekend. The Panthers (11-1 overall, 7-1 NESCAC) were ranked No. 3 in NCAA Division III last week and will host Bates on Saturday at 11 a.m.
On this past Sunday, the Panthers topped host Hamilton, 7-0, although it took them 15 shots and almost 30 minutes to score their first goal. That came on a corner, when Shannon Hutteman controlled the rebound and found Catherine Fowler for the score with 7:44 left in the first half.
Fowler converted a Hutteman feed two minutes later for the second goal, also on another penalty corner.
The Panthers made it 3-0 with 2:34 to go in the half. Alyssa DiMaio carried the ball into the circle from the right side and passed to Hollis Perticone, who redirected it inside the near post.
In the second half, Lauren Berestecky increased the Panther lead to 4-0 at 39:12 but tapping in a Pam Schulman rebound.
Perticone made it 5-0 at 46:40, and set up Josie Trichka in the 63rd minute. Audrey Quirk notched her first career goal on a pass from Caroline Knapp about a minute later. Emily Knapp made two saves for her third shutout.
On Saturday, the Panthers edged host No. 17 Trinity, 1-0. Schulman knocked home the game’s only goal in the 43rd minute, from Hutteman. Knapp made her third save of the game as time expired to preserve the win. Sophie Fitzpatrick totaled five saves in the cage for Trinity. The Bantams held edges of 7-6 edge in shots and 10-6 in penalty corners.
