CONNOR DEHEL ’15 Sports Editor This past week, the women’s soccer team had two games on the road. The first game, on September 14 against the University of Delaware, the women’s team brought their three game losing streak to an end. Shannon Westhead, ’16, notched the first goal of the day off an assist from Mo Hawkins, ’14. Delaware would tie it up seventeen minutes later.; however, Hawkins’ night was not yet over. In the 82nd minute of play, she scored to put the Hawks up 2-1 over the Blue Hens, which would remain the final score of the game. The Hawks improved to 4-3-1 on the year. St. Joe’s keeper, Christine Neal, ’13, saved fifteen shots, her best of the season. The second game, an interJesuit contest against Loyola University, the Greyhounds scored in the beginning of the first half to put the Hawks in an early hole. The Hawks would answer with an equal-

izer from Taylor Mallory, ’13, her first score of the season, right before halftime. In the second period, the Greyhounds struck once again with a goal eighteen minutes in. As the game would have it, Mallory tied the contest up at two a piece with seconds to go in the half to send the teams into overtime. After the first overtime period went without a goal, the Greyhounds put one away late in the second OT period. The Hawks were unable to score as time expired in the double overtime thriller. Women’s soccer (4-4-1) continues their road trip against Lehigh at 7 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 21. Field hockey also found themselves in losing streak coming into this past weekend, but the team was given two opportunities to right the ship at Ellen Ryan Field. On Sept. 14, the Hawks faced Quinnipiac (4-2), and the Bobcats controlled the entire game. Midway through the first half, the Bobcats were on the board with one goal, while

the Hawks only recorded two shots in the first frame. Offensively, the Hawks started to find their groove in the second half with five shots early on.. However, the Bobcats scored thirteen minutes in to put them up 2-0 and found themselves in the back of the net once before the game ended, and the Hawks would be victims of a shutout. They were 1-5 going into their second game of the weekend. Three days later, the field hockey team took to Ellen Ryan Field once again to start their winning ways against Siena. Jordan Cotter, ’13, would score with five seconds remaining in the first half, her second goal of the season. The Hawks would have the lead heading into halftime. However, Siena scored early in the second frame to notch the score up at 1-1. Jordan Martin, ’15, scored two goals within two minutes to give the Hawks the 3-1 lead, which they would hold for the rest of the game. Field hockey improved to 2-5 on the season.
