LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Earlham College field hockey team lost 1-0 to Transylvania University in a non-conference contest on Friday.
In the first half, neither team landed a goal. As the second half came around, the game was tense as both teams moved the ball up and down the field. With time winding down, Transylvania's Jessie Wilson managed to net the first and only goal of the game at the 69:39 mark to secure the win.
The Quakers and the Pioneers both peaked at 14 shots for the game. Earlham held a 9-1 edge in shots in the first half, but Transylvania took 13 in the second half while the Quakers took only five.
Transylvania's goalie Allyson Benz handled seven saves while Earlham freshman Camille van der Vaart saved five shots.
