Frostburg Field Hockey Puts Up Impressive Fight Against No. 3 Salisbury
The Frostburg State field hockey team fell to Capital Athletic Conference rival, No. 3 Salisbury University on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at Bobcat Stadium.
The Seagulls, who are nationally ranked, entered the contest averaging 4.6 goals per game, and 23.3 shots per game until FSU held them to only 2 goals and 15 shots. Critical to the Bobcats’ defensive stand was Senior goalkeeper Jaqueline Gover, who made seven saves during the game.
The Bobcats are the first team in the CAC to hold Salisbury to less than six goals in a game. During the season, only No. 1 ranked Messiah College and Catholic University have held Salisbury to only two goals or less.
The Seagulls scored once in each half of play, with the first goal coming in the 7th minute of the game when Natalie Wilkinson placed a shot just past Gover following a long pass.
The Seagulls second-half goal came in the 53rd minute of play when Rachel Domanico slid a ball played across the goal past Gover for the final score of the game.
The game finished with Salisbury outshooting the Bobcats by a tally of 15-0, despite the Bobcats moving the ball up the field on a few opportunities.
The Bobcats will face non-conference opponent Juniata College away on October 19 at 7:00 p.m. in their next match.
