The Penn field hockey team is coming off of its first Ivy win, 4-1 over Harvard, but the Quakers are far from off the hook. That’s because they’ll host Patriot League powerhouse Lafayette (7-1) tonight at Franklin Field.
The emphasis on eliminating penalties certainly paid off as the Quakers (3-5, 1-1 Ivy) notched their first Ivy win of the season, topping the Crimson (3-3, 0-2) 4-1 in Boston.
Clearly the Penn and Harvard field hockey teams are entering tomorrow’s matchup in Boston under very similar circumstances. The Ivy season will be on the line for both squads as they try to avoid an 0-2 conference start.
It was a blowout and a shutout.
Even though the Penn field hockey team took 19 shots - eight more than any other single-game output this season - the Quakers just couldn't find the cage, and lost 4-0 to Villanova last night at Franklin Field.
The Quakers hope to capitalize on the confidence gained during the morning session when they face Villanova tonight at Franklin Field.
Friday night’s game was a tale of two emotions for the Penn field hockey team.
First, the Quakers were riding an extreme high after coming back from a 2-0 second half deficit to tie Cornell with two minutes left in regulation at Franklin Field.
Cornell's Kelley Kantarian has scored four goals in four games played this season.
It will be up to the Penn field hockey team to stop her.
On certain days, winning isn't everything.
Yesterday was one of those days for the Penn field hockey team.
The field hockey team is only three games into its season. In fact, it only just earned its first win Wednesday. Yet coach Val Cloud already is confident that this year’s squad is superior to last year’s unit that went 6-11 overall.
It was certainly a day of firsts for the Penn field hockey team. The Quakers won their first game of the season at St. Joseph's, 2-1, yesterday with the help of junior midfielder Annie Matthews' first - and second - goals of her career.
The Penn field hockey team felt the effects of playing with only 54 percent of their roster.
According to Penn field hockey coach Val Cloud, it's "September or bust" this season. The Quakers hope to avenge their 6-11 record (4-3 Ivy) in 2009 in which they went 2-7 in the first month of play and at one point lost seven games in a row.
