The game took place mostly in the middle of the field during a scoreless first half. The Auks’ best opportunity came with 2:55 to go when Lauren Ross’ shot was blocked by a defender at the goal line. Read more »

WILMINGTON – With time ticking down in their game on Oct. 4, the Ursuline Raiders’ field hockey team was close to knocking Wilmington Friends from the ranks of the unbeaten. But the Quakers’ relentless pressure in the latter part of the second half paid off as they tied the game with 80 seconds to go, and an overtime goal gave them a 2-1 win at Serviam Field.

The game winner came nearly five minutes into the 15-minute 7-on-7 extra period, when Anna Erskine was in the right place to snag an attempted clearing kick by Raiders goalie Cleo Troy and drilled the ball into the cage. Christina Aleman, who had sent the crossing pass that Troy attempted to boot out of harm’s way, picked up the assist. Read more »
