SEWANEE, Tenn. – Earlham College field hockey sophomore Maite Turlings scored her second goal of the season with just over ten minutes to play, but two goals scored by the University of the South (Sewanee) proved just enough as the Quakers fell to the Tigers 2-1 on Saturday afternoon.
Ceara Caffrey opened the scoring with a goal in the 28th minute. The Tigers would fire nine more shots in the first half, but freshman goalkeeper Kudai Mushongahande, who made her first collegiate start on Saturday, would only be beaten once in the first 35 minutes.
Unfortunately for the Quakers, Sewanee would strike again 90 seconds into the second half when Sarah Barry fired a shot past Mushongahande to put the Tigers up 2-0.
Turlings put Earlham within a single goal at the 58:51 mark of the second half, but the Quakers' only shot in the final ten minutes, off of the stick of senior Megan Hut, was blocked.
Sewanee held an 18-4 edge in shots along with an 8-2 edge in shots on goal. Hut and Turlings each fired two shots for the Quakers while Carrie Anderson took six shots for Sewanee. Mushongahande took the loss making six saves in the game.
The Quakers are now an even 2-2 on the season and face Hendrix College tomorrow (Sunday) at noon.
