PSU Field Hockey remains undefeated

Balanced scoring lifts Panthers past Colby-Sawyer

            NEW LONDON, N.H. – The Plymouth State University field hockey team got goals from six different players Monday afternoon en route to a 7-0 victory over Colby-Sawyer College in a non-conference make-up game.

            Freshman Hannah Powers led the Panther scoring attack with her first two goals of the season.  PSU junior goalie Hilary Lemelin made two saves to notch her second shutout of the year.

            The Panthers remained undefeated on the season, improving to 6-0, while the Chargers, in their first season as a varsity sport, drop to 2-3. The Panthers controlled the game throughout and held a 26-4 advantage in shots and a 14-5 edge in corners. PSU led 2-0 just eight minutes into the game and extended the margin to 4-0 midway through the first half before coasting home the rest of the way.

            In addition to Powers, the Panthers got goals from seniors Laura Bergeron and Erin Norris, sophomores Aisha Rai Thompson and Jackie Morin, and junior Olivia Colborn.

            Colby-Sawyer sophomore goalie Colleen O'Hurley made 11 saves in the loss.

            The Chargers travel to Wheelock Tuesday for an 8:00pm start. Plymouth State hosts Westfield State in a Little East Conference game Saturday at noon.
