RICHMOND, Ind. – The Earlham College field hockey team fell to Ohio Wesleyan 4-0 in North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) competition at Darrell Beane Stadium on Saturday.
The game was scoreless through the first 28 minutes until Lee LeBoeuf broke the deadlock in the 29th minute. The Battling Bishops (6-5, 4-4 NCAC) scored their second goal as time expired in the first half. Courtney Peterson broke loose on the near side and her shot beat Earlham goalkeeper, senior Kate Korobkina.
Ohio Wesleyan would add two more goals early in the second half to seal the victory.
The Quakers, who lost to OWU 8-1 in the first meeting in Delaware, put on the offensive pressure in the first half. From the 21:6 mark to the 26:23 mark, Earlham earned six penalty corners and took four shots. OWU goalkeeper Jackie Feliciano was up to the task, however, making four saves and earning the shutout win.
Individually, junior Megan Hut fired four shots in the contest with three of them being on net. Freshmen Maite Turlings and Isabella Grasso each took three shots.
Earlham now stands at 3-8 on the season and 2-6 in NCAC competition. The Quakers return to action on Oct. 16 for a 5 p.m. game at Wooster.
