Field hockey’s dominating streak continues

The Lions continued their dominating streak with an overpowering win against the Cabrini College Cavaliers. But this game started off differently than all the other previous games. The Lions surrendered a goal early in the first half to give the Cavaliers a quick advantage. The goal was scored by junior Kerry Anne Farrell, her third of the season, with the assist coming from sophomore Kylie McDevitt. The Lions quickly regrouped and did not look back, scoring their first goal nearly 10 minutes later. It was a strange situation for such a dominating team to be trailing in the game, but they were able to overcome the deficit with a score by senior Erin Healy, her fifth of the season, coming off the assist from fellow seniors Erin Waller and Lindsey Hatch. Healy continued her outstanding play this season by being a great scorer as well as a facilitator on offense, registering the assist on the team’s second goal by Hatch. “We’re all going into each game as if we are playing a faceless opponent,” Healy said. “It doesn’t matter who we’re playing, we’re concentrating on how we want to play.” Right before the end of the half, the Lions punched another one in by none other than Healy, coming off the assist from Lexi Smith. Sophomore Kelly Schlupp played very well in goal, with two clutch saves at the end of the half when the Cavaliers still had possession of the ball in the circle. Jaclyn Douglas, the other star playmaker, finally got on the board in the second half with an assist to Smith. The Lions’ offensive outburst did not stop there, though. Healy completed her hat-trick and Hatch netted her second of the game. Smith finished the game with a great stat sheet, adding another assist on Healy’s last and fourth goal of the night. Overall, the star players ended with a great line as usual while the defense played well, forcing goalie Schlupp to only make four saves. The Lions will try to continue their strong play away at Johns Hopkins University on Sunday, Sept. 14.
