SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – Junior Olivia Honigman scored the first goal of her career in a 3-1 loss for the Earlham College field hockey team at Wittenberg University on Saturday.
Honigman's goal came in with 3:32 to play in regulation off of a pass from sophomore Maite Turlings. Wittenberg, who was leading 2-0 off of two first-half goals at the time of the Quakers' goal, capitalized on Earlham pushing numbers forward by scoring the game's final goal with just over a minute to play.
Earlham took six shots in the game compared to 24 for Wittenberg. Honigman, Turlings, and senior Kristina Brunner each took two shots while Audrey Coler, Blaine Donnelly, and Paige Scharfenberger scored the goals for the Tigers.
Freshman goalkeeper Camille van der Vaart took the loss, but made 13 saves in the process.
The Quakers dip to 5-6 overall including 2-4 in North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) competition. Earlham will return to Darrell Beane Stadium to face DePauw University on Tuesday, Oct. 4.
