CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Top-ranked Maryland field hockey got off to a good start in ACC play, traveling to No. 11 Boston College on Saturday afternoon for the opening conference game of the season. The Terps scored once in each half then kept the Eagles off the board to come away with a 2-0 victory.
Maryland (7-0) took a 1-0 lead in the first half, taking advantage of one if its five penalty corners in the period. In the 13th minute, junior All-American Susie Rowe (London, England) hammered a shot into the back of the net, with assists coming from freshman Katie O'Donnell (Blue Bell, Pa.) and senior Janneke van Leeuwen (Hilversum, Netherlands). It was the 44th assist of van Leeuwen's career, placing her in the top five at Maryland all-time.
DURHAM, N.C. - The 10th-ranked Blue Devil field hockey team posted a 3-1 victory over unranked Drexel on Saturday afternoon at Williams Field.
Duke scored on its second shot of the game, as freshman Susan Ferger tipped in a rebound off sophomore Amie Survilla's previous shot attempt to put the Blue Devils on top, 1-0, at the 8:36 mark. The goal was Ferger's second of the season.
Four minutes later, a Survilla shot attempt off a penalty corner was saved by Drexel keeper Colleen McAndrew, but senior Shayna McGeehan put in the rebound to put Duke ahead, 2-0. McGeehan netted a goal in similar fashion in last Sunday's win over Radford, as the Grantville, Pa., native now has two goals on the season and three for her career. +Read More
